Hernia surgery recoverer
Recovery time from hernia surgery - laporoscopic inguinal
I had surgery yesterday for an inguinal hernia. The surgery was laporoscipic and mesh was inserted. How long before I can run? Doctor was pretty vague.

I had simikar surgery on the other side about 25 years ago. It was open, not laporoscopic. Mesh was also inserted. I was in a lot of pain for several days and couldn’t run for a few weeks as best I can remember.

I am in much less pain this time from the laporoscopic than I was from the open 25 years ago. I feel like possibly I could feel like running in 4 or 5 more days.

Other experiences?
