Can You Develope A Hernia Of The Obliques From Weight Lifting
Unlikely...: Hernias directly through the abdominal wall, when you haven't had a surgery or trauma to the area, are very rare. Depending on where it is, a hernia would have to go through several opposing layers of muscle or fascia. Hernias usually develop in natural weak points, like the inguinal or umbilical area. If you have a bulge anywhere on you abdomen and you cannot push it back in, see a doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
GB taken 7mo ago. resumed weight lifting 10wks ago. dull pain in gb area for 3 wks midupper right quadrant. had U/sound all ok no hernia. Is it normal?
Which type of GB: surgery did you have, open or laprascopic? As long as you have been cleared of anything else more serious, such as a hernia as you said, infection, hematoma or anything else, then you may be feeling muscle or myofascial pain related to disruption from the surgery and this could last up to two years post surgery unless it is permanent. Find someone who does good myofascial work, see if it helps! ...Read more

1SizeDOESNOT Fit All: The goal of any operation is to get people back to their baseline activity (and most people can!).However, activity restrictions may vary quite a bit from patient-to-patient, depending on the size and type of hernia, the nature of the repair, and the patient's health. Abdominal exercises will stress the repair, but the ability of your body to tolerate this stress is best answered by your surgeon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Inguinal hernia or muscle bulge? I am a 22 year old female, about january I have had a little hard bulge along my right external oblique what would be the "v" muscle... Its about the size of a thumb print. I decided just to ignore it because it didn't hur
A : A bulge in your abdominal wall that comes out when you cough or sit up and then goes back down when you lay down sounds very concerning for a hernia. You need to see a general surgeon and have them look at it and see what they think. The ultrasound is ok if you've already been scheduled, but it isn't always going to be accurate in diagnosing a hernia. Even if the u/s comes back saying that a hernia isn't seen, it doesn't mean you don't have one. Hernias are one of the most common conditions that a surgeon sees and most people still think that a physical exam done by a surgeon is the best way to diagnose whether or not you have a hernia. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Avoid re-operation!: Patience! great you want to stay physically fit ; get back to weightlifting right away. However, i'm sure your surgeon told you how long to hold off on heavy activity to promote healing. Lifting sooner than he recommended risks a re-herniation ; potentially more involved surgical repair that will further delay you resuming lifting. Best wait until he checks the operative site ; clears you to lift. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
