My Natural Hernia Cure Update 7/25/2017
Since I was feeling so good after the last video update that I made, I decided to go for a full day with no hernia belt on to see if the hernia would actually stay in. This is something I haven’t done in a few years. I was super nervous, but I ended up having good results!
Usually, as soon as I wake up I put on the hernia belt so that it doesn’t have a chance to pop out. I feel like this is an essential part of healing. On this morning however I didn’t put it on. The first thing I did was the yoga exercises that I have been doing to heal the hernia. I had some work to do around the house, so after I was done with the exercises, I cleaned the pool, and did everything I needed to do. Nothing too strenuous, like heavy lifting or anything like that, but just steady moving around.
My wife and I decided that we were going to go food shopping, and to run some other errands, so I brought the hernia belt with me just in case. We were out all day going from store to store. We stopped to eat lunch, which really worried me, because the weight of the food in my stomach would really make the hernia bulge out in the past. But, surprisingly there was nothing! No bulge at all. There was a tiny bit of pressure, but it was a different kind of pressure than what I was feeling before. It feels like the hernia pushing on the inside of the muscle. It’s hard to describe.
My wife was laughing at me all day because I kept sticking my hand in my waste band to check if the hernia was bulging out. I probably looked a little weird, but whatever. I was like the honey badger, and didn’t give a shit. (click here if you don’t know about the honey badger)
By the time we got home it was about 6:30 pm. I was starting to get really nervous that the hernia was going to start popping out, so I decided that I wasn’t going to chance it anymore. I went ahead and put the hernia belt on since I still had to mow the lawn, and do a couple other things around the house. I’ve never realized how much comfort I get mentally from wearing the hernia belt every day. Just being able to do things and not worry so much about it popping out.
All in all it was great for me to see how far I’ve come in such a short amount of time. 1 month ago I would have never been able to even think about not wearing the belt, because as soon as I would get out of bed I would have a lump the size of two golf balls stacked on top of each other.
I’m not sure if I could have made it the full day or not without wearing the hernia belt. I just didn’t want to chance it popping out and setting me back. That’s why I decided to put it on.
I can’t tell you how exciting it is to look down in the shower and not see that lump! I’m making really good progress and will keep you updated as I get further along.
