Default Riding with a Hernia

I had my yearly checkup today and my doctor says I have a hernia. He
seemed totally unconcerned about unicycling and was sure that no amount
of racking myself with my unicycle or falling off would cause this or
make it significantly worse. However, he is not a unicyclist and I
thought maybe someone here may know a bit more about hernias and
unicycles.



I rode with a pretty major inguinal hernia up until the time I had it
surgically repaired.
After that I didn't even want to see my uni for a couple of weeks.

I'd go with the doctor's advice tho, and have it repaired sooner rather
than later.

I would continue to ride your unicycle. If your hernia gets worse as a
result, then sue him for malpractice. What a swell idea!

Default Riding with a Hernia


I talked to my surgeon yesterday. He agreed with my doctor that
unicycling or biking or jogging would not be a problem while I wait for
surgery. He said I would need to avoid it after surgery though. I
currently have a minor inguinal hernia, so other people's hernias
mileage may vary.

There is supposed to be good weather this weekend, so I will work on
mastering going in a straight line with no wall!

I ride with JC all the time which is pretty much like riding with a
hernia. I have had no trouble with it so far.
