Going to Shouldice hospital for inguinal hernia repair. I have read they remove genitofemoral nerve in Shouldice technique. Will I miss this nerve?
Long time: It should last for a lifetime. Having said that, it is common to have asymptomatic herniation of a small portion of the stomach back in to the chest. Thi is almost always without consequence, and only detectable with an upper GI contrast x-ray and/or endoscopy. Recurrences requiring another operation occur about 5% of the time.See 1 more doctor answer

Taking occas hydrocodone aft hernia repair. Sometimes works GREAT. Other times (w/SIMILAR PAIN) I get NO relief; but worse, longer-lasting side effs.
It depends!: In order to answer the question, you'd have to know where it was, whether it was the first one, how big it was, and how long you had it before the operation. There are many factors! The good news is that seromas do go away, although sometimes we need to treat them.See 1 more doctor answer
1-2 weeks: While it varies, return to work is often 1 week, even for moderately active jobs.
As tolerated: I tell my patients to return to normal activity as tolerated. This includes taking matters in to your own hands. Check with your surgeon if there are any doubts.
2 weeks: About 2 weeks if you are feeling well and the swelling is down and incisions are fully healed.
Incisional hernia: This is a tough question to answer as not all hernias are equivalent. Smaller hernias may allow patients to return to desk jobs in a few days. Larger hernias may take 6-12 weeks prior returning to work. Manual laborers will also require more time prior to returning to work. This is a question that needs to be discussed with your operating surgeon.See 1 more doctor answer
About 2-4 weeks: It depends. Recovery is longer for larger hernias (more than about 4 cm). You can eat normal foods, walk, and climb stairs right after surgery. Depending on the hernia size, the surgeon will probably recommend not lifting more than 15 lbs for 2 weeks, and no heavy lifting or strenuous exercise for 4-6 weeks. Pain usually improves by about 1 week after surgery.See 2 more doctor answers
Less than 1 week: If done well less than one week surgery3@optonline. Net.
Subsequent to an umbilial hernia repair with mesh, how long until I can excercise my abs as my abdomen is larger than?
Exercising: After umbilical hernia repair depends on the method used ; should be discussed with your surgeon. There are many methods for repairing umbilical hernias. "tension free" repairs with mesh allow patients to resume physical activity rapidly. However, suture-only repairs may require a longer period of time to permit the repair to fully heal before aggressive exercising; esp. Ab work. See your surgeon.
