M28, could sneezing and coughing 50 days after surgery cause to recur hernia(note it was large inguinal hernia, repaired with mesh in open style)?

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 more

Can lifting heavy weights in gym increase intra abdominal pressure and break the hymen?

Can lifting heavy weights in gym increase intra abdominal pressure and break the hymen?

It doesn't matter: No, but it doesn't matter. So, ignore the hymen. Usually, only in cases of alleged sexual assault upon girls and women do we physicians engage in the careful examination of hymens, collecting evidence of physical damage to be used later in courts of law. In normal everyday life, people should not be "checking hymens" nor thinking about whether they are broken or not broken. ...Read more
