Hernia and girdles

Can I wear a girdle after hernia surgery?

Yes you can wear a girdle after recovery fom hernia surgery. We do not recommend wearing hernia supports such as trusses or large corsets after hernia surgery because these only irritate the wound and do not have the benefit of preventing another hernia.
