So i had a hernia over the summer and the doctor advised me to get surgery. I waited until summer was over, as i was teaching tennis and i needed the money (broke college student here). So about a week before school starts i had the surgery and everything went fine my doctor told me no heavy lifting and no vigorous physical activities/sports for 5-6 weeks. So it has been about 3 weeks now and was wondering if doing some light hitting would be bad for me? or should i just suck it up and go through my tennis withdrawals until i am "fully healed"? Or maybe somebody has had a hernia before what have you done? Just trying to get some opinions.
