Re: HerniaHaha. Well yeah not being able to laugh was what the other half of the story was about in my case. But Floydy..yep I agree with everybody else. Get it seen to and sharpish. Take it easy. No physical activity at all really. Also your local pharmacy might be able to help you out with some kind of brace that will help support the torn muscle wall. These days the surgery will probably be a 10 minute local anaesthetic job. Not being a surgeon, not sure. Back then I had to stay off work for 6 weeks and take it easy for 6 months. That was standard and it was classed as major abdominal surgery.
Re: HerniaYes floydy mate...had a hernia op back in 2012 relatively straight forward however, one tip I can give you is, when you do eventually go in for the op, make sure you eat plenty of stuff to keep you regular you do NOT want to be constipated after your op...donít ask me how I know
