As for the surgery, had it 20hours ago and am now home resting up. Must say I didn't expect to have this much pain. I have been told I can hopefully go for a light jog at 10 days but will take the advice here and rest a bit more.....even though my Surgeon who has been doing this for 20 years (probably 100 every 6 months) thinks I won't have too many dramas if I am careful in this first 10 days.
If anyone in Qld wants a specialist in this area give me a yell.
And yes, doc, it was a typo and should be cm not mm....other than that, you clearly should not be practicing medicine if you don't know what ultrasounds are capable of, where they are better than MRI's and that how they measure things. Have you ever had a baby or know someone that has, just ask them about the early scans!!!
Anyway, sorry that I had to sound annoyed people at some idiots comments!!! If you have a hernia, day two hurts:) if you have a history of it in the family, I am the 6th one and did not know about that there was a good chance I would at some stage go through this. I am confident I will be back into action at 4 weeks, but will leave the pool till 6 as advised by surgeon.
