I had bilateral inguinal hernia surgery two days ago. Laparoscopic. It went well. How long before I can travel?
Usually 3-4 weeks. Ask your surgeon for particulars.
If you mean. Air travel, you should wait until abdominal distention resolves. Probably about one week. Ask your surgeon just to be sure.
How do you feel? Advantage of laparoscopic surgery is less pain and early ambulation. Now you can use that advantage, the real person who will decide allow you to travel is your surgeon.
Ask your surgeon. I would ask your surgeon. Depends if you mean driving vs flying and how far you are going.
I had laparoscopic bilateral inguinal hernia surgery 2 months ago. One side is still very swollen - goose egg size, and tender. Should I be worried?
U should C Ur surgon. May not b a significant finding but u need 2 c ur surgeon and have it evaluated now, & get his/her opinion.
May be. 2 months means u would have seen ur surgeon in post op visit. If this was present during visit, he/she would have been able to asses and make plan. If new, u need to call ur surgeon to be examined in person. If tender, this can b worrisome. If vomiting and distended, this can b an emergency.
