After my femoral hernia is surgically repaired what can I do in the hospital to speed up my recovery?
Tincture of time: Healing cannot really be speeded up in most cases, it takes its own time.

Is dull constant pain after open femoral hernia repair six weeks after normal? I had no pain up until two weeks ago. Now pain is constant.
