  • My DH had it. It was day surgery. He went in, had the procedure, and went home a few hours later. He had lifting restrictions for a few weeks, and had to keep changing the gauze on the area for a few days. Other than that, it went very smoothly.

  • I had a double inguinal hernia repaired as a kid. Coming out of surgery sucked. Peeing was so scary. I was afraid in the tub for my stitches. But about a week later I was mostly normal.
