I finally had my hernia repair done on January 24th. So I’m currently in the thick of recovery. Good news is that all went well and is healing well. Bad news is the doctor had to use abdominal mesh to fix it. I need to make an appointment to see my family doctor next week so hopefully I can get more information on what exactly happened. In four weeks I have to see my surgeon for the follow up appointment, then I can really get details.
I am disappointed that the mesh had to be used as it all but guarantees a second surgery. I am very happy to have it done though. Once the bulk of the healing is done I can start building my core muscles back. It’s been 7 years? 8? Since I had decent core muscle structure?
So yeah. There’s surgery update. I’m gonna medicate and try and sleep more now.
