    NO KIDDING. I had hernia surgery 2 years ago. The drugs are good. I couldn't really move for a couple of days, and then I could do most things with little pain.

    Well it is not as bad as I thought it was gonna be. I am pretty ****in sore. It was done Laproscopically so it is not too bad. The Percoset helps also:D. I cant seem to sleep either which kinda sucks. No more than 10 LBS for 2 weeks so I can not hold my son:( and the wife has to do pretty much everything around the house so she is not in a pleasant mood:o. The Doc printed off a couple of pics from the monitor of my guts that look pretty kewl I will see if I can decifer them and scan them so I can post up:D.

    CDA- It was dun at Balboa. Good Ol Navy Medicine:)

    Get better soon and BE CAREFUL! I had a hernia repair about 4 years ago. The first few days were horrible- it hurt to move even the slightest bit. After a couple weeks, I started to feel much better. About a year later, I was lifting weights when I felt a searing pain right where the incision was. Turned out that the mesh patch was pulling at the the stitches in my abdominal wall. No fun! It got better but still gives me problems every now and again. I think I had a different type hernia than you had though. Good luck and take it easy!

    I had a double!...

    I had a double hernia when I was 4 and a half...picked up a 50 lb elevator weight my dad had--he used a pair of them for added winter traction in the back of our station wagon we had at the time,and I think my older brother said "your too weak to pick that up"..well,I proved him wrong,but it cost me BIG time!..I lifted it right over my head,but right away I knew I was in trouble!..:eek1: :doah:

    I barely remember the operation,but won't forget the recovery ,EVER!..or the following years when I'd have pain there every time I exerted myself,or played sports,etc..I didn't take gym class very often as a result..

    My hernia operation was suspected of leading to testicular cancer,the doctor said one testicle didn't descend or grow properly,probably due to the hernia stitches being too tight and it starved one for blood,and as a result had to be removed,as a tumor was starting to grow on it..had it removed in 2001,and still have severe pains in that reigion..have to be careful not to tear it open again..scar tissue isn't as strong as normal tissue,and can be easily torn open!..

    Hope your operation goes well...nothing worse than going under the knife--especially in that part of your body...:doah: :crazy:
