After Surgery

Post-Procedure

Your Consultant Surgeon and Post Surgery Team will advise you on your best recovery regime. However, let your body tell you what it can do – and take it easy for a week or so after your surgery. Avoid strenuous exercise and lifting heavy objects. Respect the fact that a top surgeon has put dedicated and serious effort into repairing a weakness in your body and do remember that your body will need time to adjust to the repair.

  • There will be some pain as the muscles become used to the presence of stitching and mesh.
  • Keep an eye on the hernia repair. A little bleeding is to be expected but substantial or continuous bleeding should be reported to the hospital immediately.
  • Keep the wound dressed for as long as instructed. Keep it clean until the stitches are out and the wound has full healed.
  • Return to have your stitches removed if they are of the type that need removal but don’t worry if they fall out on their own, just so long as the wound is sufficiently healed to remain closed.

We’re holding a hernia repair, mini-consultation evening on Tuesday 25th April. Find out more, and register to attend here.
