    Hi i am new here .. and have been diagonosed with Fermoral and Inguinal hernias.. my GP has explained what these entail and referred me to a consultant for review.
    What he didnt however say and i forgot to ask.. between now and the appointment are there any restrictions i have to be aware of.. like lifting, carrying, exercise or anything that could make things worse?
    Many Thanks

    There is a lot written about how to prevent hernia-related problems. Try the Search option in the drop down menu here and look for key words such as “prevention.”

    in short, activities such as exercise are protective. Things to prevent include smoking, weight gain, chronic cough, constipation.
