working out and a hernia
can some experiece bodybuiders let me know how to train with a hernia, what do do or what not to do? thank you
Hmmm, are you having the operation to fix it bro? My mom just went through the operation where they put the mesh in to fix up the hole. I would think using machines for legs rather then doing free weight heavy squats or deadlifts would make sense. Hopefully, someone experienced with working out with a hearnia will jump in.
I think I am just starting to have one. I just feel a bit of pain there. and I am worried. starting to gain mass again , and I dont want to stop now.
Yep, I had a Double hernia ( Both sides of the groin) repaired with the meshing about 2 years ago. I had it for over a year before I had it repaired. Get it examined by a doc and see what he says. IT WON'T GO AWAY...it will just potentially tear further if you intend to keep lifting. I opted for the Fiberglass mesh because of the strength while the scope procedures have a higher return/failure rate with physically active people. I won't lie, it took 6 mos before I felt I could get back into training but I'm glad I did it and I am past the weight/poundages that I did prior to the surgery. Think of it this way bro, you say you want to keep moving up in the weights but unfortunately you are spending the time lifting when you could be recovering SO YOU CAN go up in the weights. Any increase going forward you do now you will loose and be starting all over after the recovery so best to get it BEHIND you rather than it still remaining in FRONT of you. It will become an eventual handicap to your progress the longer you put it off. Can you still gain with hernia,... yes.... carefully and patiently like anything else but the older we get, the recovery times go up from procedures like this. Good luck
Don't ASSUME it's a hernia. Have you had it looked at? I was confident I had a hernia until I had an ultrasound which showed nothing. Ended up being a ligament I kept straining which was possibly a bit arthretic as well. If you have not had it looked at, and you don't have an obvious hernia (bulging out etc) then get it looked at. Hell, either way have it checked out. Just my two cents.
thank you I will
Might not be a hernia, maybe it's some kinda fungus or runaway maggot infestation, I wouldn't sweat it. 😉
