7. Post-Operative Expectations

Recovery following groin hernia surgery these days is rapid. Multiple studies have shown that following laparoscopic operations patients recovery is faster, less post operative discomfort is encountered, requirements for pain killers are lower, resumption of normal activities sooner.

You should expect to mobilise immediately with a view to returning to work seven days or so after the operation.  Following open hernia operations recovery is likely to be a couple of weeks longer.Some patients can experience bruising.  This occurs in perhaps 5-10% of patients but resolves on its own.
