View Full Version : For belly-button hernia is weights/cardio ok before surgery?

I have a hernia (directly above my belly button). It doesn't give me alot of pain. I plan on getting surgery after school is done (in May). I've been sitting on my ass these last 3 weeks because I'm not sure whether lifting would make the hernia increase in size or something

My question is if I'm getting surgery anyway, would it be stupid to lift weights in the 3 weeks prior to surgery?

Honestly... I would stay away from physical interactions. You don't want to worsen it at all man.

Ask your doctor, IMO. Do you really want the opinions of people you don't know?
