best exercises and ones to avoid after surgery
I have had good experiences referring patients to a physical therapist for abdominal wall/core/groin strengthening after hernia repairs. After 8-12 weeks of healing, a structured strengthening program under professional supervision can be very helpful. It can give you confidence to restart some of those more strenuous activities after being sure you are strong enough. Your surgeon should be able to provide you a referreral to a PT.
