Couldn't find what you looking for?


Hello guys I am 45 yr old male and I had my hernia surgery last month. The doctors said that I could start swimming 2 weeks after the surgery but I am a little nervous about taking up swimming. Can anyone here share their experiences about this. For how long did you stop swimming after your hernia surgery or any surgery?


I underwent a hernia repair surgery last year. They had asked me to refrain from any kind of physical exercises for the first two weeks. After that you can start doing small exercises, but in case of swimming make sure that the wound is properly healed so as to prevent any kind of infection.
