Yes by fixing: By doing body weights with out fixing your hernia, you will be taking a chance to get incarcerated and other complications , also hernia will get bigger . Best advice is get it repaired and do all your 'bodyweight lungs'.

Maybe: If it hurts then likely a bad idea, if it is painless, this movement would not be dangerous.
