I wish we had an alternative to surgery, especially for the smaller, bothersome hernias. ...Read more

Does exercise help with a hiatal hernia?

Does exercise help with a hiatal hernia?

It is often used interchangeably with gerd; while often both present, they are distinctly separate diseases. Exercise may indirectly help gerd by leading to weight loss but it will not improve the anatomical abnormality of a hiatal hernia. ...Read more

Wait at least 8 wks: Returning to activity after umbilical hernia repair, depends on the size of the hernia and how it was repaired, any complicating medical conditions that you have or medications that you take, and your surgeon's preference. Usually gradual return to regular activity is allowed after 8 weeks, but may be longer if there are any complicating factors. More rigorous activities are allowed as tolerated. ...Read more
