    Cut a percentage of your caloric intake and reduce your body fat. No physical strain required.

    walk, take it slow...really slow or you will fuick it up. Ask your doctor to she if and when your better.....

    Walking, light jogging and swimming,
    This might take a few years and nothing fast!

    You should only be speaking directly with a doctor or physical therapist about this. The vast majority of personal trainers are not medically trained, and your situation, for the time being, is a purely medical one. Any trainer with half a brain will tell you the very same thing.

    Yup, as the above said, no CPT has the authority to give you any advice on this (and if they do, they shouldn't).

    A good personal trainer should tell you absolutely no exercise until you get the O.K. from your doctor.

    The only way to keep your body fat down will be to reduce your caloric intake, and eat 6 - 7 small meals a day. The definition in your abs will go away b/c you're not stressing them with a workout, but it's better to go without abs for a bit than risk having another hernia!

    Date someone who has abs, then you'll always have abs to rub on. icon_biggrin.gif

    ^ This. You could work with a trainer in the gym BUT they wouldn't be able to do anything with you until they spoke to your doctor/physiotherapist directly. This is far beyond most personal trainers' scope of practice. Don't worry about losing your abs, you can get them back later. You NEED to rest and let everything heal up correctly.

    hone in on lower back exercise such as lying face down on the floor and raising your legs (keep them straight!) and arms lifted..hold this for 15 seconds...for three sets..
    do not do any crunches for a while!
    do some isometric deep core work such as bird dog, (opposite leg and arm outstretched)...do a google search on the specifics of the exercise..planks and side planks are great..but only isometric for now...it's not much...but it's a start...

    and btw...you're so cute!

    Geez .... I'm sure glad I'm mot your Doc icon_rolleyes.gif

    Bad news ..... No ab work for at least a month - likely to be longer if the surgeon had to use mesh to repair the deficit
    But instead of asking the guys on here about what and when you can do with abs ... you need to be asking your surgeon

    (Seriously, you start to soon .... that human sacrifice you talk about will be an ongoing experience)
