In brief: Yes

You can do exercise with a hernia, but should limit activity by pain.

In brief: Not clear

After your surgery? No for at least 6 weeks of healing, but ask your surgeon.
Those exercises can increase the intraabdominal pressure and push on the repair. I have had patients "pop out" the repair for not following instructions. Obviosuly thsi would depend on severity of hernia and repair used.
