Well it is official. I am going under the knife here real soon to fix an abdominal hernia. Had this damn thing since I was a baby, it’s 'bout the size of a silver dollar, 3" above my navel. They always told me that it was nothing to worry about, it’s just superficial they said, no need to worry.
Well, some post DL naseau and sickening pain later and here I am.
Both docs who have looked at said it is double the size from the last exam and needs to be fixed ASAP.
I meet with the surgeon on Thursday and then the operation should be next week. The sooner the better.
I know it needs to get done and better elective surgery than emergency surgery. BUT DAMNIT! I have spent the last 15 weeks busting my arse in the gym harder than ever before.
This is the best and strongest condition I have been in since my competitive sprinting days. A lot of it stemming from advice and knoweledge I gained here at T-Mag.
And now I’ve got to take 8 weeks off?
No leg press.
No cleans…until the operation.
And then little to nothing afterwards. F!#$
I know I’m whining but F!#$ I can’t even pick up my boy for almost 8 weeks.
My adventure trip planned to throw at Shamrock this year is out and I have no idea how much strength and size I will lose in 8 weeks.
I am not a happy Sprout.
Anybody been through this before and have any helpful post op advice, rehab advice please feel free to share.
Kind of hard to review new equipment from my bloody couch.
