A hernia is the protrusion of intestines through a tear in the abdominal wall.
The painful inguinal hernia is the most common hernia suffered by weight lifters.
Inguinal hernias don’t always require surgery. Some inguinal hernias are repaired with the use of a laparoscope which is inserted through a tiny incision in the abdomen. The post-surgery recovery time is minimal if there are no complications.
Complications include infection, chronic pain around the groin/testicle area, and swelling.
