In brief: Here are some...

As reported, your hubby had uneventful minimally invasive abdominal hernia repair - not specified; congratulation! Clinically and generally speaking, he should have no reason for avoiding flight 10 days after such procedure.
But, for sake of safety, asking the surgeon, who knew the best detail and nature of the procedure, is the most reasonable thing to do. Best wishes to his health...
