In brief: Normal Life

After any hernia repair, it is always possible for another hernia to recur. There are many ways to fix a hernia, but none of them are 100%.
You can always get back to a "normal" life after a hernia repair. You might need to be somewhat cautious about certain activities such as heavy lifting or other strenuous activities. See your surgeon to discuss this further.

In brief: Normal life

The goal of inguinal hernia repair is to return to normal life.
Occasionally, people will have some pain associated with the repair, but this is rarely associated with any significant limitation of activity whatsoever. Of course, there could be complications from any operation, but the risk is low overall. If a complication does occur, it's much more difficult to predict outcomes. Hope this helps!
