    RIchard: I do exercise 15-30 minutes a day also but best to ask a Physical Therapist if you can do ab exercises. I do other resistance/ weight machines that help other muscle groups, but at a low level and experience no problems.

    Hope this answers your question

      I go to silver sneakers program at ymca and we sit in a chair and put ball behind back directly behind belly button and try to push against ball using just stomach muscles.

        Planks are good for the abs, and I read that after the PD catheter placement is healed, they help prevent hernia.
        I didn't do any ab exercises until about 3 or 4 months after my catheter was inserted, because I was worried about a hernia. Now I do various total gym exercises, as well as planks. I also walk 45 min a day.
