Can umbilical hernia repair surgery be affected by doing light cardio and lifting light weights (10lbs max) two weeks after surgery?

See below. 2 weeks is the usual time given after umbilical or inguinal hernia repair. If I were you I would wait 4 weeks. It is a lot better than to have to have the hernia recur.Speedy recovery.
Ask surgeon. The best person for answering this question is the surgeon who performed operation,
Unlikely. If it hurts in the surgical area STOP! Otherwise that is a reasonable toning EXERCIZE.

2-3 weeks. Dear nicole, recovery for repair of a large umbilical hernia is shorter if it is done laparoscopically, with small incisions and a video camera. Small umbilical hernias can easily be fixed with a single incision. Depending on the size and type of surgery, you will be asked not to lift anything more than 15 lbs for about 3 weeks. Pain usually isn't bad, but is proportional to the hernia size. Read more...

Size, Symptoms. The biggest risk of any hernia is the potential for bowel to get stuck (incarcerated) within the hernia, necessitating emergency surgery to prevent intestinal death. If an umbilical hernia has reached a size where this is a real risk, or if the pain from the hernia is interfering with one's daily activities, surgery should be strongly considered.

I had umbilical hernia repair surgery a week ago and I have pain in my right side just above my hip for the last 3 days. Should I be concerned?

Probably ok. Did you have a laparoscopic or open repair? Is there an incision near your area of pain? It is probably just muscle soreness after the operation. If you are eating normally, having normal BMs, and no fevers or drainage from your incision then it is very likely normal recovery. Nevertheless, you should see your surgeon to ensure everything is ok. Read more...

Infection vs seroma. this could be an indication for an infection in the surgical site. It it can also be a seroma or fat necrosis. If it's an infection it needs to be opened and drained.
