Got a Hernia in the summer by doing t - bar rows with too much weight and cheating an extra rep with what i will admit was not good form. Since then the pain has been minimal and i have been able to train chest, arms, shoulders, some back exercises and light deadlifting. I also to alot of cardio.
I have the operation next week and have been told i will recover soon and be good as new, Great news!!
Although I was talking to someone at my gym last week who had a hernia last year, a pretty bad one by the sounds of it, and he told me I will never be able to lift like I am now, and I will be in agony for months.
Do any of you have experience of a hernia or know what i should expect once it is fixed, I can't imagine life without being able to train as hard i used to, and to be honest i'm depressed after hearing this.
I think maybe my hernia is not has bad as his as its rarely noticable unless im doing alot of running or havent slept in a while.
Any advice or input is much appreciated thanks!!
