Reply To: Visiting Dr Kang next month, any tips?
They gave me a load of ice packs shortly after surgery which helped a lot.
I’ll ask for a wheelchair at the airport, did you have any issues on the plane with pain? I might ask if I can have a isle seat so I can get up frequently. (My ankles were like balloons after arriving!)
Dr Kang said a direct hernia needs quite a lot more repair than indirect and would be more painful, especially bilateral. It’s very swollen but not red so he was happy to discharge me.
