There are a few bits on here about recovery from hernias, but nothing about exercise while waiting for an op. My husband has been told by his GP that he has a reducable inguinal hernia and should not do any strenuous exercise until it's fixed. He's got an an appt at hospital in September but is looking at about 3 months waiting list for an op. Given he was hoping to run a couple of marathons in this time and cycle up some serious hills - he is not a happy chap.
Obviously he really shouldn't be doing anything too strenuous - but do you reckon he's all right to do some moderate running (shorter distances, not so fast!) and cycling. Anything else people have done to stop themselves (and their wives / partners etc) from going mad whilst waiting for treatment?
It's not causing him any pain at the mo... and it only appeared at the weekend.
