Depends where it is surely, you get them under your nuts or in the abdomen area.

If the later you should be ok, only lifting, jerking would cause you pain.

Depends on where it is, i had one in the groin area but was still able 'offroad' whilst i waited for an operation, generally if you feel pinching its time to back off.

/\ It can do as well, sneezing can feel like the whole of your knacker area is about to burst out of it's cavity. :lol: :| :facepalm:

Hernias can be fun, especially the hiatal variety.

When you've had the operation you're meant to rest for 2 weeks to let everything 'mesh', the sensation when going from lying down, to sitting up to standing positions can be painful and you don't realise how much you use your stomach muscles until you can't.

I rode with an inguinal hernia for years, but I wouldn't recommend pushing yourself too hard as you may cause more damage
