Hernia

I've been diagnosed with a hernia, which kills all plans I had for DBW6, Miriam Vale, BlackButt and probably the multi day TBAM ride and every other weekend inbetween. Not sure how long I'll be outta action for, but will know more next week. I started this thread to save the dbw6 thread in the qld section from getting too far off topic.

That is some bad news but it will all pass pretty quickly and you will be back in the sattle soon.

As for dbw6 i was gonna start a thread aswell to find out how many non riders were gonna go. Same as you mate im a cripple aswell but still thinking of going for a social event so come along still and we can form our own group of cripples.

we were going to be hard pressed to make it to DBW6 before hand, with $$ and time off work issues. This just made that decision a bit easier.

Hamish could you please explain the symptoms of a hernia, and where the discomfort is !!!!!!!!!!!.
Not being rude but i have been a bit uncomfortable for a while now and it doesnt seem to be getting any better.

I am no hero but i only normally go to the doc if something is hanging off

Ive had two of these suckers .a hernia is just a rip in your lining mostly in the groin for blokes . the first one i had started of small but I could felt a two inch lump in my groin that didn't hurt at all. I kept riding for months without any dramas until one day i was buckled over in intense pain for about 1/2 an hour then it stopped.
i got back on my bike rode back to the car without any probs. later i realised
that i had ripped the hernia pretty much as far as it could go and was left with a tennis ball size lump that would come out and could push it back in .
it didnt really cause too many bothers and I left it go until i started doing Tae Kwon do and then I mattered so I got it fixed. the old way was to cut you open and stitch in some mesh ,, major bloody pain for about a month, ouch
the second one i got was on the other side and it was at work and through compo so i had it done within two months, they used key hole surgary and no bull I was out the morning after getting operated the afternoon before and didn't even have a panadol,the only problem was i had to be just as careful
as the first one which is really hard when you are not in any pain, either way you will not be riding for at least two months after and i'd seriously wait a little longer. good luck with it . the good news is that once they put the mesh in and its fully healed it wont happen again , on that side anyway lol.

Bad luck there m8 hope it gets better soon.

At least you are young and fit. An old bloke had one at work and was in some pain for about 6 mths (he is carring an extra 20 kg though and 60).
Depending on how big it is m8 i think we will see you out there again in about 2 mths. Good luck wit hit. Hope all goes well.

I had a hernia operation two years ago now. Before i knew i had a hernia i had problem couldnt steatch without a sharp pain in the region down below on the side. I didnt give it a second thought until one day i was pushing my boy on the swing and it felt like i got stabbed down in that area it was painful as. It was the muscle tearing and i had a lump there i knew something was up then i was shitting myself then. I went to see the doc and thats what it was so had to see the surgeon and book in. It took a week before i could walk it was the most painful thing ive had done worse than braking my hand and foot . Two years on now i still have problems with it i cant lift anything too heavy and it sort of works like broken bones do it aches with the weather changes you have good and bad days. I had mine done 6 weeks after another guy from work had hes done and we both got the same probs now so i would suggest to anyone lift the right way or suffer the pain of a hernia operation.

Wow.. i never really knew what the hernia deal was all about. It's horrible to even think that someone would have to go through this

All the best Hamish!
