In brief: Should be all

After repair of a femoral hernia, it would depend on the technique.
Regardless of the technique however there shouldn't be any long-term restrictions on any activity. I usually telling patients to return to normal activity as tolerated. Check with your surgeon however to make sure.

In brief: Few restrictions.

Following femoral hernia surgery i advise my patients to avoid strenuous activity for 1-2 weeks.
Most people are back to full activities without restrictions within 3-4 weeks. Some factors that may affect recovery include patient age, size of hernia, coexisting medical problems, and hernia repair technique (laparoscopic vs. Open).
