    Just Had Hernia Surgery! How long to lift again?

    I'm sore as a mofo. How long did you guys have to wait to lift after your surgery? I have a cycle waiting for me!

    I'm not a doctor so I can't tell you bro. Why didn't you just ask your surgeon?

    I've heard mixed feedback on this. He said 2 weeks but most people have said it took them longer. Just want some feedback.

    Well, if it were me, I wouldn't try to lift anything until I felt 100%. However, if I felt 100% after 1 week, I would still wait until week 2. JMO

    just had surgery on 10/6 for an Inguinal hernia and a Umbilical hernia. had no pain at all, only knew about the umbilical one, doc found the other, said i had about a 2" hole but during surgery found it to be about 5". as far as lifting you're not going to feel like it as it hurts like a mofo. this is the 6th day after still some pain, get staples out on 10/14, looking at 6 wks recovery, i'll find out about lifting light

    he said i could start off light after 11/18/04.
    started light for a few wks and maybe about 4wks after that was 30% from my max weight when i left off.

    just take it slow and see how you feel, the last thing you want is to tear something and have he cut you open again
