Activities / Sports Recommended After Hernia Surgery?
Good afternoon doctor,
Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com consulting service
Hernias indicate a bulge in certain parts of the body that are misplaced. Ingunalis hernia is a type of hernia that is most often found in men. Hernias can occur in infants, children and adults. Diagnosis of hernias is generally based on complaints in the form of lumps that often go in and out of the groin fold or settled down to the scrotum / testicle pouch as well as from a direct physical examination. Hernias can also occur in the groin (femoral hernia) which is often experienced by women. Hernias can also occur in the chest / respiratory organs or navel areas / abdominal hernias.
The most recommended treatment is the operative action of closing the hernia ring and returning the mass that comes out of its origin (in this case the intestinal organ).
Post hernia surgery, it is recommended to take a rest at home so that the healing process goes well. For some time to come, you should avoid doing activities that are too heavy, such as cycling. Morning walk for 30 minutes is allowed to be done as a form of physical activity to maintain fitness and health. Until now there has been no definite standard related to how long the total healing process in hernia cases. But you should avoid strenuous activities such as cycling, sports that require extra energy such as running, soccer, tennis etc. and lifting heavy weights, for about 6 weeks after surgery. Over time, total postoperative recovery will gradually occur by taking adequate rest and avoiding the risk factors causing it. Eat healthy and nutritious foods and multiply the consumption of water so that the immune system can be maintained properly. Respiratory infections that cause acute or chronic coughing can increase the risk of hernias.
If there are complaints that interfere with your activities, do not feel worried to carry out consultations and examinations to your nearest doctor in order to get appropriate treatment. So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
