5 weeks post op is def too early to do snow shoveling
pls be careful and don't do anything like that again.
i'm 7 mons post op, so i don't know why i should have problems lifting??
anyways, i just asked a surgeon in a forum and he sais (i was lucky he just logged in ) that they don't have to if i'm really scared of it, but a finger check into the stoma can really help with the diagnosis of hernia.
i think i just won't do anything about it for now, cuz it's not that bad.
