It is hard to give medical advice to someone elses's patient, so please don't take my comments for more than they are intended. I just haven't had problems with port site hernias and believe that most of the restrictions given to patients for limited activities after surgery are not based on good data.
This is what my Surgeon said as well. Told me to not stop lifting or working out if thats what I enjoy. I had my first workout yesterday (11 days after surgery). No problems.
