Hernia's > What to expect after Hernia surgery?

Following the operation, you will be transferred to the recovery room where you will be monitored for 1-2 hours until you are fully awake.

Once you are awake and able to walk, you will be sent home.

With any hernia operation, you can expect some soreness mostly during the first 24 to 48 hours.

You are encouraged to be up and about the day after surgery.

With laparoscopic hernia repair, you will probably be able to get back to your normal activities within a short amount of time. These activities include showering, driving, walking up stairs, lifting, working and engaging in sexual intercourse.

You should schedule a follow-up appointment within 2 weeks after you operation
