Bilateral inguinal hernia

Hi all I have a suspected bilateral inguinal hernia and have an ultrasound later this week. My question is if I can deal with the pain while running would I cause myself any more or lasting damage continuing to run, VLM in eight weeks for a charity so would like to continue training. Would a hernia belt help to reduce the pain while running? I have been prescribed naproxen to help with the pain but they don't really do a lot. Is there any other type of medication I can take to ease this type of pain. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you....

Ask your doctor/consultant. Unless of course they have already told you not to run and you are hoping to be told that it is ok to run, by some fucking genius on here who didn't bother with medical training because it was beneath them.

Don't want to be rude but why do you ask this on a forum? Ask you own doctor and discuss your plan with him after your final diagnosis. Maybe he is able to help you out with a solution. Don't rely on a forum for your own health! Good luck

Agree with all the above. I wouldn't trust anyone on here for spot on advice....

Just thought I would ask as nobody including my GP will give me a definitive answer....

Probably since he wants to see the results of the ultrasound  first. That result, together with your story and the physical examination performed by your GP will be the basis of the answer later. Just ask him again after all this and you will probably get an answer. Trust me, I am a doctor -)
