I was pootling in the roads within 2 weeks but I had to keep my saddle low so I didn’t strech the wound much. I was riding off road after about 6 weeks but I think it took a couple of months to be riding without knowing it was there.
The challenges I had were the lack of strength in that area to hold your body up and streching the wound/scare. I still can’t do leg presses without knowing it is there and I had the op about 3 years ago.Posted 6 years agotinman66Subscriber
Had a double hernia repair about 18 months ago. I was up and walking absolutely fine within 48 hours but probably a couple of weeks until I could ride a bike properly. Well as properly as I’ll ever ride a bike 🙂
I could have physically ridden the bike sooner but not off-road and not at any pace. Any twists or turns of my waist / abdominal area were a bit painful.
A few years ago you’d have been out of business for weeks but the new key hole procedures are awesome and you should be back riding in a couple of weeks.
Hope that helps.Posted 6 years agoversesSubscriber
I suffered a haematoma when they stitched me back together (Open not Key-hole) so had to be re-operated on again later that day. That meant I was still having difficulty walking after 3 weeks. I was riding gently after around 2-3 months.
I’m now 2.25 years down the line and I can still feel that it’s there when I exert myself.
EDIT: I also like to think I have a bionic groin, but that’s nothing to do with the operation… b’dum…Posted 6 years ago
