    Black & Blue from Inguinal Hernia

    5 days ago had robotic inguinal hernia surgery for a large hernia the size of a cantaloupe going into the scrotum. Surgery took 3 hours. A progrip mesh was used to do the repair. So far no pain meds are needed. My post op results are much better then expected after reading the many negatives that have been posted on the internet & various forums. 3 days after surgery my scrotum area turned back & blue. After waking up this AM/ 5 days after surgery I felt some tenderness & soreness when touching the scrotum area (its raining & not sure if that effected wound)… seems to have lessened after doing my morning walk.
    Needless to say I am happy that the surgery is over & so far seemed to have chosen the right surgeon… guess only time will tell for sure. I will keep future posts with my results.
