I think your doc is the best person to answer this question ..

You probably won't want to for the first week. Gently after that maybe.

You have my sympathy mate.I know how sore it is. I waited 7 weeks,it seemed an eternity,but, better to wait it out than risk busting the stitches.Good luck.

I had hernia repaired in late August 2009. Took around 4-6 weeks for swelling to go down. Not a problem for punting when I when I traveled to UK in late October. Strange mix of one side shaved, other not.

You do not say if it is a single or double. Approx 17 % of people requiring a hernia op, need repairs on both sides. Having a double hernia op at one go slows down the healing process considerably...If they are putting meshes in, make sure they check your prostate. Meshes can rule out the possibility of prostate surgery at a later date.

Anyway, in response to your specific question....ask your doc and the ignorant, lying bastard might just give you the right answer. (not fond of the medical profession in general!)

I suggest that you wait until you have left hospital at least.

Can't speak for a hernia op, but I had fairly extensive surgery on my stomach a few months back, and was punting within two weeks. Took it very, very carefully, and the girl did some very gentle cowgirl on me.

not direct comparison I suppose

I had a transient stroke and a deep vein thrombosis in mid-April and Ive seen about 4 WGs since then

Only problems was I cannot kneel right now and I tend to get a tad out of breath as I have a heart condition anyway

There we go

I was considering getting an escort dressed as a nurse to come to my bed. It's a private hospital.

I've had a HJ in a hospital before by an auxillary nurse.
