Can umbilical hernia cause nausea?

I've been sick to my stomach for almost 8 weeks. My doctors have done numerous amount of tests. The last test I had done was a CT scan on my abdominal and pelvic area. The only thing that he found was that I have an umbilical hernia but didn't think much of it. Is it possible that an umbilical hernia is the reason why I've been feeling nauseous for two weeks?

Not very likely. Umbilical hernias -- at least the small ones -- are usually asymptomatic.  Eight weeks of nausea is not likely related to an umbilical hernia, so keep looking for the cause/reason. Don't let your doctors throw in the towel....
