A 35-year-old male asked:
what is involved in the two week follow up exam after inguinal hernia surgery? is this the only follow up appointment?
2 doctor answers
Eval progress: In general, the two week follow up allows enough time for initial swelling and pain to subside. The incision is checked, acceptable activity levels are reviewed, and specific questions answered. Some level of pain is usually still present with certain movements. At six weeks one should be free to advance to full activity as tolerated.

Possible but...: At least, one postop visit after inguinal heniorrhaphy is reasonable to check how the "wound" heals and if the postop resolution has been as expected, and give some advice for future lifestyle. More? Ask Doc face to face, and don't leave related doubts in mind. Best wish ...
