  • I have had inguinal hernia surgery. It was a fairly quick recovery and I was back to nearly completely normal without pain within two weeks. The first few days were a bit painful, but with rest it improved greatly. I actually went back to work three days later, although I have a desk job and am seated nearly all of the day. The only real pain was with changing positions such as sit to stand and laying down to sitting up, anything that causes the 'bend' in that area.

  • Funny you should ask, I need hernia surgery, but have put it off.  I am afraid of all surgery.
