    Can't Train

    :mumum: GuysI was WIA in Afghanistan in '03 and had to have surgery on my stomach. I love BJJ and have been doing it for a while now (since my recover in '04). Yes it took me a whole damn year to recover. Now I have developed an insicional hernia (13cm long, 13cm wide) and the doctor says I can never do BJJ again (that's how I developed it). My question is this: Is it possible to still do jiu-jitsu without reinjuring? Is there anyone on this forum that has had a major hernia repair and subsequently returned to training? They want me to do running or swimming and other BS but NO JIU-JITSU! I am extremely pissed and am trying to see if there are any others out there that still train. Any info would be helpful. Thanks guys. :5bomb:

    Oh that sucks so much... sorry to hear that. What a sacrifice you made for all of us... thank you! How long did you spend recovering after the injury, and what kind of conditioning or rehabilitation exercises were you doing aside from jiu jitsu? I would hope that there would be some way to build your stomach up to a point where they could give you enough protection so you could wrestle again. Some doctors might be too conservative about their activity restrictions. I can see taking some time off, but for LIFE?!??! That's awful! I would try and get a second opinion from another doctor. I hope you heal up and get strong again!

    I did some googling and I found this site talking about incisional hernias:

    http://hernia.tripod.com/incisional.html

    Did you get a mesh implant that they talk about to repair your hernia? Is your doctor or surgeon a specialist for hernias? It sounds like this Hernia Institute might be a good place for you to get in touch with about this.

    Good luck!!

    That's rough.

    I would consider doing a solid period (maybe six months) of serious conditioning -- all within the doctor's parameters. This would include swimming, strength training, etc. Identify the muscles -- particularly in the core -- that you need for JJ and condition the hell out of them to withstand stress, torque, etc.

    Damn yo. Sorry to hear that. Any advice you get here about starting BJJ again, double check! Very few doctors post here.

    If they do the mesh, it's possible. My buddy had a hernia taken out after he finished Airborne school and they meshed it up. He was still in the service when I last saw him, and with all the running and swimming we do, it must've held up pretty well. The Hernia Institute sounds like your best bet.

    I also have a buddy who I boxed with that had a hernia repaired with the mesh and he continued boxing with no problems.

    I know almost nothing about it, and yours may be much worse than the people Koto an I knew, but I wouldn't lose hope yet. As I think somebody said, doctors tend to be extremely conservative with that type of stuff.

    Damn, that's rough. But do listen to your doctors, your health is very important - please don't go hurting yourself because of some bad advice on the internet. The other guys suggestions about conditioning work sound like a good idea.

    I have to chime and repeat, listen to your doctor!

    I ripped my L5 disc and it's protruding, impinging on nerves. Some days I can barely walk, let alone train. I thought I was good enough to do it after 3 months of rehab and rest. I was wrong. I'm going on over half a year no BJJ and almost as long no lifting.

    I jumped back into training way too fast. Your health is all you have, protect it!
