Need advice about joggin after hernia operation

Posted: 18/06/2009 at 12:57
I take it that doing any exercise can re-open an old hernia wound when the patient has had to have the gauze removed then? So, am I just supposed to just lay back and become a lazy couch potato then? For fear of the healed tissue re-splitting open?

Yeah but the surgeon wont be putting another gauze in because my body has rejected it. They're taking it out, so the original wound where the skin has grown back over the split will be severly weaker without the gauze. Thats why I asked about which form of strenuous exercise puts least strain on your abdominal muscles.

I got a bit of a dilema guys. I need some help. I had a hernia operation about 2 years ago and my body has rejected the gauze that the sugeon put in, meaning its gone septic. Meaning i'll now have to have another operstion to have to gauze taken out. I need to know, if you guys know, the interal hernia wound will be weak without the gauze, how do I carry on exercising without putting too much strain on the wound?

 I been jogging quite a few years, and it cured all my depression, anxiety and stress, but after my 1st operation, all that came back and I returned to being an aggressive, stressed out and axnious person who hardly gets more than 4 hours sleep a night every single night. That was 2 years ago, and njow i'm obviously gonna go through that again. exercise is absolutely esseintial to my life. But what exercise can I do that would put the least strain on my abdominal muscles out of these :

Jogging

Exercise Cycle

Rowing Machine

Elyptical Cross Trainer

I have to do some sort of strenuous exericse, because it makes me feel amazing inside.

Its not that I dont wanna eat more healthy its just that I cant eat foods I dont like because it then makes eating a chore and something I ireally don't enjoy 1 little bit. I've tried cabbage, leaks, cauliflower and loads more and they just make me feel sick, litterally nearly throwing up. I feel good and have passed health tests with flying colours so thats enough for me. I don't wanna eat more healthy if it means stuffing food into my mouth that i'm cringing when I eat it. I guess you fanatical healthy eating people never seem to understand or even wanna understand what its like for people who just cannot eat the kind of stuff you eat. But thats life. Anyway, i'm leaving it here now and not replying anymore because this thread may start to turn into an argument. And I certainly didn't start it, all I wanted was advice as to why I was maybe feeling bloated. I apreciate the advice you guys have given me, and it definatelt hasn't fallen on deaf ears, its just that I cant eat foods that my taste buds really don't like even if it is really healthy for you. I believe you have to eat fairly healthy as your body is something that if you dont take care of it it'll fail on you, but at the same time you have to enjoy eating or you enventually just stop eating cos you cant be bothered which is something I went through last year.

Well its not the place to start on about that kind of stuff, I just meant to menation why I cant get a job even if I was able to keep one. My tourettes alone is enough to get me sacked.

I've got aspergers syndrome, adhd and tourettes syndrome so it makes it impossible for me to keep a job. Plus if I got a job i'd have to pay rent, and i'd have to work 40-50 hours a week to bring home the same amount, thats if I could even get a job here because 98% of jobs are on the land or in factorys and are given to immigrants. Immigrants get priority of jobs here. The amount of english people unemployed here is awful, and thats because barely any employers want english people, they'd rather pay foreigners less money and have them work for them. I saw on the news, that where I live (Boston) has the 2nd highest percentage of immigrants in the whole of the uk. Here 1 in 3-4 of people is foreign so now you see why us english people get nothing here and are all unemployed. The housing situation is even worse. We're told that it could be 15 years before the council can offer us unemployed english people a place to stay. Even mothers here have to give up their children and have them adopted to give them the best life they can and dont have to live on the street with their mothers. But I wont go into all that anyway.

There's very little I actually like. I've tried pasta, bananas, rice, smoothies etc..... but I hate it all, makes me feel sick. My taste buds are very picky. I dont even drink milk because it makes me feel like i'm gonna be sick. I get a reasonable amount of calcium in from the A to Z vitamins and yopghurts I eat. I do eat about 5 or 6 meals a day, and eat about every 2 hours or so having little meals but very often. I like fresh cod but just can't afford to buy it any more than once a week. I've had healthy checks like cholestorol checks, vitamin level in my blood checks, organ checks, scans, blood pressure and everything and got a very good result back from the doctor. The doctor said the only thing i'm really lacking in is protein. My heart was found to be very healthy, liver etc...all were fine, my daily life energy levels I know are very good indeed and I feel fine, feel about 18, and i'm 33. My blood pressure was found to be as good as an 18 year old who also doesn't smoke or drink alcahol at all. I drink nothing but water filtered from the tap by a britter filter. So all in all my diet works for me, and after all these tests its been proven i'm not unhealthy. Its just this past week i've been feeling so bloated its been hard to finnish the runs, and I was guessing it might be because instead of eating less food, but eating food with high carb content i've been eating more food with less carb content to make up up for the fact im not getting enough carb for the runs.

 I'm getting £170 a week on disability but i've got so much to pay for every week that I get about £20 left to spend on food every week.

For 1 thing I can't afford to eat real fruit and can't really afford much food as it is so I eat tinned fruit. Fish fingers DO have fish in, obviously so I am getting fish into my diet. I just use the vitamins to top up the vitamins i'm getting in my diet. I don't like natural yoghurt, only flavoured, and the 'Muller Light' yogurts I have only have 6g of sugar in which is from milk naturally, so its not as if i'm eating the yogurts with 20g of sugar in. Tinned beans are good for you, and I know that because a fitness and diet expert from the local gym said they are, they're harico beans. She said there's only just a little too much salt in them but they are good for you. I'm not on a sports diet, i'm on a normal diet which enables me to stay healthy and have energy on tap when I need it. I feel great from my diet. Maybe to you my diet is crap, but its a lot better than 80% of people's diet which is beer, burgers, sweets, crisps, kebabs and stuff like that with them also getting no exercise either. You say where's the veg? You obviously haven't been reading what I been writing cos if you did you'd see I actually wrote that I eat carrots and garden peas so thats some vegetable.

Like I said i'm on a normal diet, but days that I go running I eat foods with a higher carbohydrate content so my runs are a bit easier.

Its not eating 8 rounbds of bread with the soup before a run that makes me feel sick its now eating 2 tins of beans and 16 fish fingers before a run  that makes me feel sick. Eating 8 rounds of bead with soup gives me loads of energy, so then I need to find thew soup again from somewhere. I cant leave an hour after eating food before a run becdause i've got a very high metabolism in normal life anyway and start feeling the energy from eating after 25 minutes, if I wait an hour all the energy has drained away. Thanks guys, and Danoway, yeah I do feel bloated when I eat loads as aposed to few food.

To get other vitamins in I take 'Centrum A To Zinc' and 1,360mg of omga 3 tablets just to make up the vitamins i'm not getting enough of. But like I said in my original post I do get a pretty good diet, not amazing, but pretty good.
