I’ve read and heard that jumping and squats are not recommended when you have a hernia. Are body weight squats ok to do? I’ve found I can only walk and ride a bike. I tried running for a bit and that seemed to bother my hernia so I stopped. I’m just trying to find other options for working out, but it feels really limited.
Avoid creating abdominal pressure. Don’t hold your breath when you exert yourself. You can also hold your hand over the hernia to see if what you’re doing is causing it to project. A truss might be helpful also.
I enjoy, well almost, running (actually jogging). So I was keen on what docs say about it and not one I have asked or read have recommended against it. I’ve concluded that the range of affliction is so so vast among patients that it’s hard to say. Mine was a medium sized IH and never gave me pain after a jog. I usually wore a truss for support though I can’t say it was necessary.
