Hernia & Working out
Hello

I am 22 years old. I was bornd with a R/L inguinal hernia  (not sure whether direct or indirect) that is still not fixed. I am trying to get in ship and gain some weight since I am 140 lb. and 6 ft tall.  I am wondering if weigh lifiting excerices (using ~20lb.) will affect the hernia? I do not do any free lifting (all machines). Thanks for your help.

Hello!

No weight lifting till your hernia is corrected and you are out of rehabilitation.
You can do mild cardio and walking is best for you. Do not do anything which increases your abdominal pressure like coughing etc.

Get yourself diagnosed properly near a surgeon if it is an indirect or direct inguinal hernia and see if it is reducible or irreducible. Anyways after surgery you will be given do's and don’ts and you have to follow this strictly.

Take care!
