i just had a hernia operation this morning but the method used was the private hospital method, instead of the classic method of stitching the muscle back together so the hernia no longer pertrudes out, i had the "mesh" repair where they simply put plastic mesh over the muscle to pop the bit of intestine or whatever it is back in its place...
has anyone else had this treatment? just asking because 100000s of people have hernia repairs every year so there must be someone on here who can give me advice!!
what i really want to know is apparantly the recovery time for my repair is a lot shorter than the traditional stitching method, was wondering if anyone has had a hernia op, whats the recovery time like?
