Depends: Depends on the type of hernia and the extent of the surgery, but if you're talking about abdominal wall hernias, then most surgeons would recommend holding off on any heavy lifting for at least 6 to 8 weeks afterwards. This is about the time it takes for the abdominal wall to fully heal after hernia surgery and be at its strongest.

Depends...: ...On where your hernia was and why it had to be repaired. Did you cause the hernia to exist or did you just cause it to open? How did it happen? A hernia that your body already had that simply opened is a much faster fix than a hernia caused by trauma.
