Hernia

what exercise can i do with a stomach hernia.  I am 54 years old

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Hernias are caused due to increased abdominal pressure like coughing, constipation or lifting heavy objects. So, avoid all exercises which increase this pressure. Go for aerobic exercises, like swimming or cycling. Even long walks would be beneficial.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
