As part of my last operation, I had an abdominal reconstruction. My surgeon said that I have a 1 in 4 chance of getting a hernia and advised me to not lift anything heavy too strenuous etc.
I am 43 years of age and feel very frustrated as I would at least like to build up my strength in the gym. I am paranoid about every twinge I feel in my stomach. I would just like to do some light weights along with the cross trainer and running machine that I have been doing. I am started of getting bored of both those pieces of equipment.
Sorry for waffling on. My op was over 12 months ago. I am looking for a little of advice from someone who has had a similar issue or experience. That can say they did this or used that and have been fine.
Maybe even even a work out plan they could suggest.
