I think I have a hernia around my belly button area. I can't afford to get it fixed right now. I know you can't say go ahead and train and that must consult a physician etc, but could a person go ahead and trained a lot lighter until he/she can get it fixed?

Here's the deal. If it doesn't hurt you don't necessarily have to get it fixed. I would as soon as possible, however. The problem with continuing to train with it is if you get it to a point where its strangulated then you need immediate surgery because the pain is out of this world and it could eventually kill you. It's your intestines sticking out of you abdominal wall.

When I had mine I just stopped training for 3 months and waited for my new insurance to kick in. once I was covered I had it repaired. But, I chose not to train for 3 months. It's your call.
