Boarding After Gall Bladder Removal?

Had my gall bladder out two weeks ago...laproscopically. The other day, my doctor said no heavy lifting for six more weeks. I asked him about boarding and he looked at me like I was crazy. He said that I could get a hernia where the largest incision is on my upper gut (right under the ribs). Not sure if he's right, or just thinks of half pipes when he thinks of snow boarding. Any experience with this out there?

He's not kidding, my girl had her appendix taken out using laparoscopy and was told 6-8 weeks in mid december. We went boarding 2 weeks ago and the pain was to overwhelming to stay out the whole day but this past weekend she was able to get about 8-10 runs in until she got discomfort in her stomach. I told her to take time off so she's good for the east coast meet, but surgery is no joke. Take your time coming back, you dont want serious damage or chronic pains for the rest of your life.

What the hell does your doctor know about surgery anyway? I'd listen to the snowboarders here, they've got to have more training in the medical field than any stupid doctor.

You did the right thing in asking us your medical related questions.

Hey MonkeyScat...love your sarcasm, but if you have nothing to contribute, close your pie hole. I didn't ask for medical advice, I asked for experiences with this, and a few decent people gave me theirs...reinforcing what my doctor said. I even explained in my question that perhaps he didn't really know what snowboarding entails. Maybe his experience with snowboarding only extends to watching Shaun White in the Olympics. Not even sure why I'm responding to you, as it's obvious that people have been telling you to shut up for most of your life. Peace.

You do realize there is a hole in your abdominal wall right now right? You know what a hernia is right? No you can't go snowboarding! Unless you want part of your intestines to pop through your abdominal wall. I promise you, it won't feel awesome.

Your doctor is smarter than you. listen to him. That's why he has a medical degree and is allowed to cut people open for a living.

I have a word limit on my cynicism

btw I'm speaking as someone who actually has medical training (not anywhere near as much as a Doctor). Do not fuck around when you have a fucking hole in your abdominal wall.

Seriously.
