So I got a fucking umbilical hernia. Recently when i finish workouts and after chugging down a protein shake, my bellybutton hurts and pops out. I press down on it and it gets back in a bit. However I can still feel it's there when I get in certain positions.
I have a doctors appoitment in a week.
So bassically I'm so fucking pissed at myself for letting this happen to me. Just when I started feeling stronger then ever and broke platoues on some of my lifts. I'm also frustrated by the fact that I probably need to stop lifting right now wich means stopping my progress and not having a place to go away from my wife. This also means shit tests could increase and attraction will decrease. So fucking pissed.
Anyone had any experience with hernias from lifting?
Edit: I apriciate the answers from you guys. You helped me change my perspective on this.
