  • I was inducted into the *men's club* by my surgeon for the biggest femoral hernia he'd ever seen. LOL
    Just Do what the Dr says,take it eeeaaaasssyyyy!
    Sounds like you have had a lot goin on! Took me about 8 weeks,as I have a pretty physical job. No scar,I had a good surgeon. Gentle hugs,take your time!
  • Hi InAPICKLE

    Thanks for answering! :H My DR said it would take 12 months for my inside to heal. I only took six weeks off from my volunteering job. I was so sick of doing nothing. :sick: I had Lap. Ventral Hernia w/mesh. The Hernia was 15 cm. :jawdrop: It was caused by my last surgery which was a 17 cm Tumor.

    Needed the Hug! Thanks

  • :H Thank you so much. How are you both doing?? I will be three months post op on the 28th and I'm doing fine so far. I started with this forum about four years ago and they changed the website a few times and we had to register all over again but I do love posting here, just don't get to as much as I used to. Take care and have a really great day. Laters :H

  • :H Thank God the visit went well. I still have to eat healthy, exersice and lose weight or I'm in deep doo doo. :))( Anywho, Since God gave me a second chance I think I'll take it. The hernia is getting better but sometimes I feel pain when bending or lifting. Here's hoping everyone has a really great day!
