hernia help

I have a small hernia which is only a bit uncomfortable,and doesn't affect my biking or swimming.
I was thinking of getting it sorted this winter-does anyone know how long you have to lay off the training-can you do certain things,not others etc?

    I had one a few years ago. I was into weights at the time which I gave up as soon as I`d been to the doctors. I carried on biking up till the op, as long as you`re sensible It shouldn`t be a problem.

    The hernia was repaired as a day case, after the op complete rest for 4 weeks, then begin building up gradually again.

    Good Luck
