    I don't have any special advice other than to listen to the doc, and take it easy the first several weeks. Let everything heal properly. Being in shape is a marathon, not a sprint. Trying to do too much too soon is a recipe for aggravating injuries.

    I had the surgery 7 years ago for an umbilical hernia. The surgery itself was a breeze. The first couple days post surgery were painful but tolerable. I was instructed to take 4 weeks off from lifting which I did. Started real slow and worked my way back but over did dumbbell rows and tore the muscle just above the incision.

    Lesson learned go real slow (more so then you would think) and tighten those abs up when your lifting.

    Hey Mid,
    Is that type of hernia surgery cosmetic, cause your navel sticks out, or a necessary thing?
    I think there are different hernias (?)

    it was an umbilical hernia as the intestine was popping thru just above the naval. Also should mention mesh was not used..

    I had inguinal hernia surgery just a couple months ago. Felt like my balls were being squeezed and then every once in a while like a massive Indian burn in my crotch. Went on for almost a year before I found out about it.

    I did have the mesh.. So hopefully I don't die.

    thanks for the input, I'm taking it easy right now doc said 6-8 weeks. so that's what I'm aiming to do. I have bought the stimrx 15r to help out while I'm not in the gym so hoping this will help keep me up a little bit.

    I had the mesh 3 years ago and I am still alive. Just follow what the Doc says and you should be OK..i held off the surgery to compete, had the surgery and competed 9 months later. Recovery was not bad for me.

    I had testicular strangulation as a result of a hernia. I had the mesh in 2001. I am still alive.
