When did you have the surgery ?
was is it an Open Surgery or a surgery through a Endoscopy?
The surgery will be done only next Tuesday, i.e. 12 October
so to avoid a strain on the area of the hernia surgery site you should avoid sex for at least 6 to 8 weeks
ok...so you will have to follow the instructions as above
is it going to be a open surgery or one through an endoscope?
6 to 8 weeks after the surgery, right?
It's my boyfriend who's going to have the surgery
What's the difference between open surgery and endoscope?
ok , so you will need to avoid any form of strain on the site of surgery for 6 to 8 weeks minimum to avoid recurrence
Will it make any difference in the time for open surgery and endoscope?
well open surgery is where the surgeon makes an incision along the inguinal area and the endoscopic surgery is done without the long incision but only via a key hole surgery
well ideally the open surgery done has more chance of a strain during sexual play as compared to the endoscopic however its better to avoid it generally to prevent reoocurence
do you agree with what i have mentioned above?
Well, I'd say I am frustrated
what is the reason of your frustration
once the healing occurs it will never occur again
Well, my bf and I are supposed to have a holiday together, and now this happened!
well its unfortunate that an hernia can present at any time as it is the result of the weakened walls of the inguinal tunnel
Will some people recover faster than others and don't have to wait for 6-8 weeks?
well sorry that it doesnt work that way as it can result in him getting the hernia again and then he will have to undergo one more surgery
OK, doctor, I got it
