It'll be worth it Mac. I suffered through an entire summer with an umbilical hernia, should have had it fixed sooner.

I had a ventral hernia about 6 years ago, had it repaired, and 2 months later I was back to 100%. The first couple days after the surgery was awful. Coughing was very painful! Just take it easy, and it'll be better each day.

I had my hernia repaired a couple years ago, then a year later I have a lump about the size of my thumb next to where I had the hernia.
It hurt when I press on it, so I went to see the doctor. First they sent me for the X-ray but found nothing wrong. Then I was sent to MRI, then colonoscopy and finally the CAT scan. Without the insurance, all the tests would cost me over $6,500.00 !!

BTW, right after the CAT scan I lost the sense of direction but I managed to walked back to where I parked my car by memorizing the brick walkway but once I got inside the car, I couldn't figure out how to get home even though I could see the street signs. I waited until a familiar bus came and followed it home. :thumbsup:

None of the test could identify the problems. I was worried about the earlier repair but they told me that most likely the synthetic screen or the patch has some reaction with the surrounding tissues that also have some nerves thus cause the minor pain when I touch it.
I recalled that there are more than one type of the patches that you can choose from. A few years ago, one of which was recalled!

My dad has hernia repaired 7 times.

I guess I was one of the lucky ones. Never did have a bit of pain at all. A little sense of weakness and nausea from the painkiller but that lasted about a week. No stitches staples or anything. I hope your pain subsides quickly Mac.

Had my hernia repaired 9 years ago and up to 2 years ago weight-trained heavily without any pain or accidents. I was pretty sore for a few months following the surgery though. I'm 58 now still without a problem. Go Mac go!

Make sure they didn't take any extra parts. They start working down there, and you never know.
