Coughing in Inguinal hernia

Dear Ask The Doctor:  Would it be a good idea to keep coughing if you have a reducible inguinal diret hernia as it will keep it coming out and avoid danger of incarceration etc? 

Dear Patient:  I am unaware of any measures, aside from surgical repair, that can prevent incarceration or any of the other complications of a hernia.
