Anyone develop a hernia following takedown?

I am a year and 3 months post takedown. About 2 months ago, while at work, I felt the weirdest sensation in the area around my scar (illeostomy). It was like a burning but different, I honestly thought maybe pouch was leaking or something. I called GI Dr and set an appointment.  While working, I noticed the right side of my abdomen protruded more than my left. (There is flab there, but not that much, I thought) so yes Dr. confirmed it was incisional hernia.  After reading up, I of course see it can form when a weakening in the abdominal wall.  I also know it is the work I was doing at Amazon that caused it. Because I had my yearly physical 2 days before I started. I lift items of various weights, 300 per hour, 10 hours a day. I started a workers comp claim. It was ,of course, denied because they don't want to pay surgery. I got a lawyer and am waiting for hearing. It still hurts and is getting bigger. I was just wondering if anyone else has had a hernia.
