  • when do people feel completely healed after hernia surgery?

    Hi. I had inguinal hernia surgery no mesh/open repair a little over two months ago. Everything seemed to go well. I only had one night of pain after the numbing agent worn off and was back at work (not physical labor) a week later. I did have extreme sleepiness for over six weeks which I attribute to healing process since I had it checked out and nothing else wrong and maybe to a low level of pain (not debilitating by any means and often not noticeable). Lately I have felt an itching not on the skin but under and a little burning/stinging sensation (but nothing is red). Again I think this might be the healing process. I'm back to the gym and getting back some of my physical strength but I definitely know I had surgery on that side. Is this going to go away, do you think? When do people get to the point that they don't notice anything?

    I had a Desarda repair about 10 months ago. I have finally reached the point where I have absolutely no abnormal sensations in the repaired area. It feels 100% normal (and I lift weights and am pretty active). I definitely had tightness and occasional strange nerve pains for at least 6-7 months though.

      Ezzy, how soon post-op did you start lifting? Free weights or gym machines? Did/do you avoid squats or crunches?

        Everyone heals at different rates.
        As long as you feel like you are making progress, then be patient.
        Tissue healing is usually complete at three to six months.
        Work with your surgeon and your physical therapist.
        Regards.

          Around 3 months is when I started back on gym machines. Around 6 months I was back to free weights. Around 9 months Iím back to lifting 90% of my top weights before the hernia. Iím no power lifter, but I move fairly heavy weights (relative to my age/weight), that seemed unimaginable 3 or 4 months ago.
