Thanks for asking

Actually there is no such time limitation that you should follow prior to surgery. You can play even a day before surgery . Nowadays the surgical techniques are so advanced that you can even be discharged on same day or next day after procedure, Yes you can wear a hernia support while playing as it help in keeping the hernia in a contained area. So you should play as you regularly do and stop a couple of days prior to surgery .

Good luck
