HI all,

just wondering if anyone has had anything similar or any advice. I'm just under 2 weeks into recovery after open ventral surgery just above the belly button. About a 2 inch cut and was told no mesh was used due to it been very small. have just started doing some light walking 3 miles a day. Was told should be able to do light activities after 4 weeks. after reading so many threads can't seem to see where I fit in as ,many seem to be done using keyhole and mesh. Any feedback or exspirence would be appreciate.

thanks

I won't bore you with my story, it was 10 years ago now anyway (in the early days of keyhole/mesh). Suffice to say, it's October, the best time of year to be laid-up with whatever injury/ailment you might have Smile Relax.

I had mine 2 years ago, bilateral hernia repair by keyhole. Rested up first week, 2nd week lots of walking, 3rd week some light wattbike cycling and I mean 10mins easy adding about 5mins each time and listening to your body. Within 4 weeks I was out on road doing light cycling and by 5th week I remember doing some running. Good luck and don't overdo it. You may have some twinges for a few months after.

I still get the odd twinge after all this time, normally when I've been sitting in some contorted angle and straighten-up. I can also feel it down there if I push too hard on the bike (low cadence) and calls of nature....yes I just wrote that! Be very cautious when you visit the WC in the early weeks, maybe a bit of All Bran Very Happy

Ha I still remember the pain of going for no.2s in the first 48hrs after an inguinal hernia Op (+mesh). Took a month to graduate back to the bike, then bringing the running slowly back. It was difficult to stride out or jump in any form for several months.
After 4.5 years its still a weak spot with occasional tightness and twinges. Ive had to go for a check once as I thought I opened it up again. It didnt help that an instructor who worked in my gym at the time told me he had three Ops. One to restitch a previous hernia.
Think anout where the weak spot it as just be careful how you train. For me Iím just a little careful with lifting heavy weights and certain types of resistance work like dead lifts, lat pull downs etc. I can jump now, but not loaded.
