Strong, instant pain  appears, hernia increases its volume, there is nausea, vomiting, retention of gases and feces. Intestinal obstruction picture develops. If no operation is undertaken instantly and if the intestine is entrapped, intestinal necrosis appears with efflux of intestinal content into the abdominal cavity and the result is peritonitis.
