Just wondering if any of you guys out there are riding with a herniated condition.. For the first time, I started experiencing constant mild lower abdominal pain on my left side a few weeks ago so I decided to ease up on cycling a bit.. Last week my doc told me I have hernia and would schedule me an appointment with a specialist. The specialist/surgeon told me my inguinal hernia is mild and is very common and gave me an option of getting it fixed or not if this condition isn't bothering me. He basically advised me not to alter my life syle and to continue with my normal activities, including running and cycling.. So I opted not to get operated on for the time being and to see if my condition worsens or not. I've been on the bike a couple of times since and it hasn't bothered me except for an occasional discomfort and very mild pain. Any thoughts?? Thanks!
