Anyone ever have hernia surgery?

Sitting in pre op waiting for surgery. Easy recovery? Painful? Any advice.
Thanks.

For me the most pain I had was on the car ride home. Lotta potholes on the way. Other than that, it wasn't too uncomfortable within a day or three.

Also, don't lift anything more than a pound or two for a while, give yourself a chance to heal.

I was sleeping the whole ride home. Just get some stool softener. When ever I took a **** it hurt so bad and try eating light foods and put ice on where they cut you

Should have specified that I had an umbilical hernia. It was pretty small and the doctor also found a second, even smaller one, just above it. They cut right below my belly button.

Lol, I asked my wife to join me in shaving. Lets just say, she declined. Sitting here in a recliner in pain. Tougher then I thought.

I don't think a women's decision to shave her vjay determines classiness or not. Just not her thing. To be honest, I would of liked it...

Seeing my doc this afternoon for a diagnosis. Curious as to what it felt like before you went into the doctor. I think it may be an inguinal or femoral.
