Diagnosed with small umblical hernia 5mm in size. Steps to prevent further omentum of hernia? - Online Doctor Chats
Can I ask one question with regard GT system?
you mean, GASTRO INTESTINAL SYSTEM ?
I meant Gastro
may I know your age, ?
I would like to know if there are any steps to prevent further omentum of hernia
29 age, 5,10 ht and 90 kg weight
I have put on lot of weight since last 2 yrs due to my travelling and too much of work
usually hernia of the umbilical area, occur due to defect or weakness in the underlying linea XXXXXXX tendons of the rectus muscle, in the abdominal wall
I have put on 10 kgs in last 2yrs and I feel this may be once of the reason for umblical hernia.. Am I correct?
so, you are absolutely right, that your weight is more likely the cause of the hernia
I am not working our regularly since 2 yrs and would like to know if post hernia surgery is there any restrictions for exercises?
Can I do ab crunches?
I have been doing ab crunches since 10 days and I feel better doing it
since the hernia is less in size, there should be no issue doing work outs
To tell you my back ground, I am professionally a physiotherapist and fitness trainer 3 yrs back and now I am currently into clinical research field.
but you should see a doctor in person, so that he can rule out any intestinal remnants, that may be present in the hernia, and is not evident easily
Is there any restrictions post surgery?
do u suggest surgery for 5 mm size hernia?
the surgery involves, reduction of the hernia, and then tightening the linea XXXXXXX tendons
so post surgery, there will be no issue for exercise
ok..great to know this
are u sure, it is a 5 MM hernia OR 5 CM hernia ?>
5 mm is a very small value,
This is wat is wriiten on my report XXXXXXX small umblical hernia defect Mx- 5.8x5mm, omentum herniated through the defect"
could you tell me which are the activities which increase the size of this hernia?
ok. in that case , try to lose weight first
doing abdominal crunches, in some cases, can increase the intra abdominal pressure
and this can result in opening up of the defect and increase in size of the hernia
once you lose weight, by working out with walking running, treadmill, etc, the pressure will be reduced
and the hernia may subside
the other alternative would be to undergo the surgery, and fix the hernia defect
and then try to work out and lose weight
options in surgery?
both options can be used
laser or incision?
which is the effective ?
just a minimal access surgery, with lapraroscopy can be done
I am 90kgs now and planning to loose 5 kgs in 3 months and then under go surgery
5 kg loss is easy to achieve
for your ht , the ideal weight would be 75 kilos
I am not finding time to go to gym for treadmill and other exercies..
