What to expect after inguinal hernia surgery?
Hi all, I've read a few older threads about people's stories, but was hoping for some new responses.
I'm a 24 year old male in good health, overall fairly active (running, biking, etc.).
Last week I noticed the small bulge on the right side of my groin and started to have some pain today. Went to my family doctor today, and sure enough it's a hernia. He referred me to a surgeon and I'll meet with him next week.
I was wondering what kind of timetable I can be looking at for recovery? What I mean is basically how long it took you to get back to your normal routine after the procedure and even what to expect in the first days/weeks.
Any response is greatly appreciated.
