Hello Ady,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Need to be clarified, what hernia did you experience before?

Hernias refer to a part of the body that sticks out through a weak gap. There are many types of hernias, for example inguinal hernias, scrotal hernias, hiatus hernias, and so on. Of course, each of these conditions can have a different treatment, both surgery, and postoperative care.

If you mean inguinal hernias (which are most common among other types of hernias), then post-operative wounds can generally heal within 1 to 4 weeks. This healing time can vary depending on many factors, including the type of surgery (laparotomy or laparoscopy), complications that have occurred, patient activity and mobility, weight, age, surgical wound care, endurance, and so on. If there are no other complications, after the wound heals, you can return to normal activities afterwards. However, for activities that are classified as heavy, such as climbing mountains, lifting heavy loads, going up and down excessive stairs, excessive running, and so on, generally the doctor will recommend that you do not do it at least 3 to 6 months after surgery.

Again, this can vary depending on your condition. Therefore, to make it clearer, you better consult your questions directly by visiting the doctor or surgeon who operated on you before.

I hope this helps.
