Incisional Hernia and athletics
Competitive weight lifting can be resumed after a hernia repair. Outcome and risk for pain depends on the type of the hernia, size of the hernia, and the type of repair.
If you are a competitive weight lifter, I highly urge you to seek consultation by an expert hernia surgeon who has skills in open, laparoscopic, and even robotic surgery and has the knowledge and experience to offer you the best repair with the lowest risk for pain and recurrence.
