Is there an option to get surgery given that you do weightlifting?Have any of you ever had a hernia before?
I’ve got an inguinal hernia but just get back from a consult and they said it’s not progressed enough to require surgery. Good news that I don’t need surgery but bad that I’m basically just waiting for it to get worse so they can work on it.
I haven’t been to the gym in a month (lost 15lbs) while I waited for this consult. Now I don’t know what to do.
I’m pretty confident that squats are out of the question, I don’t want to just be an upper body rat but think it might be my only option. After the consult I went to the gym and tried a few things and it seemed ok but I was going super light, not that that’s a bad thing.
Anyway, curious if anybody has been through it before? I feel like this is the shit old people go though.
You could transition to calisthenics in the meantime?
