Is it safe to exercise while suffering from hernia ?
My sister says she must get a gastric bypass in order to get a bleeding hernia repaired (once repaired already - from caesaerean?) . Is this normal? She says she cannot exercise to lose weight instead. Is this true?
Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
Abdominal wall hernia due to scar weakness will not subside by gastric bypass. Losing the excess weight and strengthening the abdominal muscles with exercise will help her.
