Cleary, your bike is too heavy.

That sucks. Estimated recovery time?

That sucks.

I had an Inguinal hernia that was repaired arthroscopicly. The only limitations I had was pain. The doctor placed some mesh over the site and did the opposite side because he was there. He explained that unlike the cut and stitch method there is no recovery or limitations needed. He said it was like patching a tire and as such you could do what you wanted and pain tolerance was the only inhibitor.

Recovery was quick and no issues to this day.

Good Luck

Messed up. I guess it was bad enough to see the Dr., but hopefully it will remain managable. Good luck with it.

Just try explaining the concept to a college kid in a P/1/2 race, and attack when he cringes.

"Turn your head and cough." I discovered mine when I had a chest cold -if you're planning on waiting do not get sick.

~2 years ago I had the laparoscopic TAP repair and was riding again in 3 weeks. In theory the TEPP repair is even better as it doesn't enter the peritoneal cavity, but my surgeon found the procedure awkward. Avoid the open repair.

Could this be God's Penance for all that Pcad Ball Busting g?

Hope it doesn't crap your style pal. That sucks. How do you know you have a hernia, is this a self-diagnosis? Have you had one in the past so you're familiar with the symptoms?

No racing for me this weekend. Hell, they told me not to even exercise for 48 hours (post dental surgery) but I'll be sneaking out for a couple of hours tomorrow to blow out the Hydrocodone hangover (I'm presuming once this Marcaine wears off I may be diving into it, but maybe the Advil will suffice).

I'll have to give you that disc next time.

you can feel it. it's pretty obvious. I suppose I could be wrong, but I think it's unlikely.

It retracts when your not doing anything right? If not, you can't wait.

Hope you're wrong and it's not so serious, I guess the doctor will tell you. Won't he say 'And NO bike riding!'?

The inquiry will be pretty binary. How much damage can I do by racing out the season and getting it fixed in the fall?
