How long can I reasonably wait to have an Inguinal hernia repaired. It's new and still reducible.?

Watchful waiting. for a while, actually. See a surgeon and have it assessed and documented. As long as it does not cause you too much discomfort, it can be monitored. Should it start to be very tender, swollen, red, or you feel nauseous and feverish - get it evaluated right away.

How long should I wait before I can do my normal weightlifting activity? I'd lap inguinal hernia repair. I'm on 6th day post-op. Feeling better (60%).

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 more...
