They recommend nothing heavier than a kettle full of water for 12 weeks. Now that's going to be difficult with your child I know so make sure you adopt the absolute best safe lifting techniques. Be very careful make sure you lock your trunk ( no pun intended) and don't over extend your abdominal muscles. How heavy is your little boy?

Just be careful. Make sure you use the large muscle groups in your arse and legs not your back or abdominals. Take real care when you bend to put him in his bed or car seat etc, as these are two of the most dangerous times when you just have to bend at the waist, dangerous for you as this naturally distends your stomach putting you at max hernia risk.

As the OP has posted in the sleeve section, which is a more invasive surgery, it may not be the best advice! if you're still worried hon, get some advice from your team :)
