Yup - incisional hernia cause i started lifting heavy. Actually I'm grateful I got it cause my doctor bullet-proofed me when he fixed it. First of all I had been having obstructions...when he went in to fix the hernia he cleaned up the adhesions and put down a film to prevent them in the future..which is exactly what it did. I've been eating whatever I want ever since including lettuce and mushrooms which would have killed me before he put down the film. Secondly whatever he used to patch my hernia must have been made from kevlar since I've been able to lift very heavy ever since with no problems.
