best exercises and ones to avoid after surgery
I can’t say that I know much about Desarsda-specific recommendations in terms of postoperative recovery and exercises. If anyone has any experience performing the Desarda technique and has a routine for their patients, ease share.
It seems to me the technique is a very specific and tenuous tissue repair technique so I would err on the side of caution. Do not perform any rapid movements, fast changes in direction, or activities that increase abdominal pressure. I do not recommend jumping activities, Crossfit type exercises, hiking (especially downhill), squats. Pilates and Yoga are excellent core strengthening exercises and I recommend it for my patients. They usually do not involve any activities that strain the groin or increase abdominal pressure. Most tolerate Pilates more than Yoga. Cycling is also good.
I would ask your surgeon if he/she has any specific recommendations. And please share with us.
