My understanding (and I’ve seen it reported in studies and journals and mentioned here by doctors) is that it takes about a year to achieve maximum strength after tissue damage of the sort involved in hernia surgery, but that within a couple or a few months the great majority of the strength is there. After a year there will often be remodeling of scar tissue and such that could indeed go on for multiple years.
