Exercises with abdominal hernia?

Posted: Sat Jun 23, 2018 9:50 pm

I Recently developed a parastomal hernia. Months prior to that, I was starting to work out more and more. I still walk daily, but, I would still like to do some strength training. Specifically, my arms. Are there any exercises I can do to strengthen my arms without putting any strain on my abdomen? I tried doing some, but, I can't help but feel there is some strain on my abdomen still. Thanks.

Hello bukowski. With all types of exercise it's wise to take it in small steps to increase whatever you are doing. I've had my hernias from day one so they were not caused by anything untoward that I did. However, not wanting to aggravate them, over the years I have  gradually increased my activities (and worn hernia belts) until I can now do more or less what I used to do, including gradening and DIY (concreting etc.) which included heavy lifting. 

Best wishes
