    Depends on your will and body's abality to recover. I have had two major surgeries to my gut,one was a plug that lasted from 2002 to 2011 than in 2012 had a multipal hernies repaired with the newer screen and tit staples,it is still holding,but i now have another hernier surfacing just above the mesh screen. Now to your question,from 4 wks to 12 wks depending on how active you want to be,but what to stay away from once back to lifting ( leg press) any kind,not for at least 6 months after surgery,squats are ok,as long as you go fairly light weight,say 40-50% of your max weight,just run much higher reps and the best form you can muster. Good luck

    It never caused me any pain or discomfort, I got myself a hernia support belt and I keep lifting as heavy as I used to. In those 10 weeks it has not gotten any bigger.


    As for recovery time I guess it depends on the size of the hernia, I know a kid at my gym who just had paraumbelical hernia repaired, his was slightly bigger than mine, he said it was a ball 4th of an inch in diameter sticking out from his navel.
    2 weeks post surgery and he was back at the gym, doing light, mostly seated exercises that do not involve core muscles. He did not look like he fully recovered thought, kept holding his abs after each set. I spoke to him again at 4 weeks post surgery, he seemed much better, the discomfort was gone but he was going to stick to light weights for another 2 weeks and then slowly add weight.
    typlically they develope just above the belley button,i know i have 4 right now,3 repaired and one that just started two months ago,above my last patch.

    This picture sucks, but imagine half a golf ball sticking out.

    Surgery was a breeze, about three hours in and out. Pain is minimal. I can do a lot, as long as flexing my core isn't involved. I went to work the next day, just took it easy.

    Cool. Mine is tomorrow. I took a week off for it and hoping that's long enough. My surgery will be more complicated but I think it's all relative.

    Congrats on your recovery LG. I have a consult with the surgeon on Monday for the same procedure. However mine should have been done about two years ago. more than likely its going to be complicated.

    Not too bad really. Went back to work today. I have a desk job so it went ok. Still have some slight pain but pain pill keeps it in check. I see surgeon on Oct 1st, until then I can't lift more than 20 pounds. That's the part that sucks the most.

    Helo everyone, new to "IM" I recently posted this topic on T-Nation and got no response. I developed an Umbillical Hernia about a month ago about the size of marble and when it pops out it pertrudes into the navel. I am able to push it back in but it does get to be a pain in the ass and its seems the leaner I get the harder it is and the more I have to keep pushing it in. What really sucks is that I have made some great gains and worry about the down time from training. Doctor said as long as I can push it in don't worry about it unless I absolutely want the surgery. After seeing and reading what you guys posted I would think get it done while it is small. Would that be a correct assumption.
