first of all ive been lifting weights for a year, very heavy too
ok so like when i tense my stomach/abs and i feel my pubic area on the right(above right testicle)
it blows up/inflates as if theres a huge bubble under it or something, and its only on the right side, and its alot worse and blows up more when im done a workout and there was a little bit of pain and i felt it blowing up/bursting when iwas deadlifting today

my dad has had a hernia surgery a few years ago and till this day he still cant lift things, even light things... so has my mom and my younger brother...

I dont want to go to the doctor yet

and if i do go and get surgery will i be able to lift heavy afterwards? am i screwed for life? help please
any possibility this isnt a hernia

  • I don't think you should wait because I think you run the risk for strangulation in that area. Perhaps your dad's surgeon was not as skilled as the surgeons are today. These are good questions for your surgeon. I don't think you will be "ruined for life" however.

  • After you have the surgery, I'll bet your doctor can give you some good advice on easing back into your lifting. Try not to rush it.

  • Are you sure that it is a hernia, you should get a second opinion. It could be ME or CFS!!!
