Good morning everyone. This is my first post on here, so be gentle with me. I was wondering if anyone has any information about potential problems after losing significant weight when you've had a prior abdominal/ventral hernia repair with mesh? Just wondering if there is anything I should be worried about. Thanks all )

Thanks so much for posting. We're glad you've joined the forum. You're asking an important medical question, and while others here may have experience they can share with you, it's important that you check with your program medical staff and or your primary care physician for any medical issues you're facing.

I agree that you really need to consult with your physician as every case is unique, however I had the same hernia surgery August 2009, started the HMR program in March of 2010. I went from 298 to 200 without a problem at all with the hernia surgery/mesh. Fast forward to today and still no problems.
Stay healthy! See you around the lake,

In many cases surgery is required to repair a hernia & overweight can harden any surgical process. Walking would be best exercise for you as rest of the exercises can put an additional strain on hernia. Follow simple diet plan with less carbohydrates & minimal sugar & walking as much as possible without overdoing it. Also seek medical opinion to get rid of hernia before it worsens her discomfort beyond control.
