Fist full of hernia part 2: So you’ve blown your guts out. Now what?

There are different places a hernia can occur. The most common are Femoral, Inguinal, umbilical, abdominal and hiatal. Each of these hernias has slightly different consequences on when you can return to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ). For the purposes of this writing we are to focus on the recovery (i.e. once you have been formally diagnosed and operated on). There is not enough space to cover diagnosis, non-operative treatments, and consequences of non-treatment.
