      Hi Guys,
      I have been diagnosed with a very small inguinal hernia around a one centimeter.I have been told by my GP not to lift heavy weight otherwise it will aggravate. I m increasing weight because of fear my hernia will get worse.i even went to specialist she said hernia is very small no point to do any surgery. Now whenever i tried to do exercise I have a fear in back of my mind i m worsening my hernia. Guys and respected Doctors does you or your patients feel the same. and how we can overcome that fear.

      Exercise is protective of hernias and not contraindicated.
