broken chain wrote:I recently had surgery for an Inguinal hernia.How long a recovery process before I can get back on the bike?
A little personal information:58 yrs. old,excellent physical condition,37 bpm rhr,can hold 82% of max hr for an hour.8% body fat,170 lbs. 5'10".I do some weightlifting for tone and 20 min. a day core work.5 days a week.
Doctor says He won't release me to work for minimum 6 to 8 weeks because my job entails pulling,pushing and lifting.
How should I start out?Duration,intensity etc.?
Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I just swam 1km this morning with no pain or discomfort, and that is nine days after the procedure (mesh inserted right inguinal hernia repair). The hernia i had wasn't huge but the repair has gone fantastic, quick and simple. I was operated on at 4pm i ate sandwiches sitting up in bed at 6pm and was walking to the toilet unassisted at 7pm. The next day i went shopping with the family no problem.
I would get it done early, that way the repair isn't a big job and you should be back on the bike after 7 days.
