    Post-Op Recovery: What to Expect

    Make sure to read my post.
    I actually worked from home at a computer for 4 hours same day of surgery. Still have not had to take any pain meds & it is 3.5 weeks post surgery. Have been walking on treadmill… it seems to make me even feel better.
    I have come to conclusion that every case is different & the skill of surgeon is an important factor on post op pain. The progrip mesh that did not need tacks or sutures may also have been a factor in minimal post op soreness. I am following surgeons instructions & not lifting anything over 15lbs but everything else seems to be back to pre surgery condition& I do not have the hernia.
