I hope not. I have been a weight lifter my entire life before i got sick. I am convinced it helped me heal faster after my surgery. I go in for my second stage in August and my takedown will be in Nov. After i heal i fully plan on hitting the weights again. Im sure i will have to be careful and not lift as heavy but exercise is very important.

I would not recommend that, that is risky for us

Since my pouch in 86, I've done tens of thousands of abdominal reps as part of my 3x weekly work-out.  As the movements are controlled and not 'explosive', I believe they have significantly helped my overall physiology. 

Keeping my core strong has undeniably helped my back (L4/5 discectomy), and in my completely unfounded opinion, has created a strong and stable 'girdle for my guts & pouch.

Crunches, the ab wheel, lots of planks, hanging leg raises done with correct form and in a proper progression, I think, are 'safe' ... but everyone needs to evaluate the various inputs ... be honest about their own capabilities and decide for themselves with their own surgeon's guidance.

What works for @Jaydog may or may not be good for others ... but if it works for him/her, I respect that ... but again, we should each decide individually.

@Jaydog - good luck with your second step & takedown!

Well if I could make you not do that, I would. The only thing I can do is share ino, the choice is yours if you want to chance that. Some people get away with stuff for a long time, but it does not mean forever. I respect your choice though. Be careful. Give what I said some thought.
