I was wondering, does the RPP procedure make one more prone to having hernias where the inscisions were made? I have already had two inguinal hernias repaired years ago with mesh. my job is very physical with lots of lifting, pushing, pulling, etc. (I am a government fleet mechanic and I keep 27 Harley Davidson Police Road Kings on the road).
I have been released to go back to work on modified duty at week 4 post op. I will be doing paperwork in the office until I can resume my normal duties.
There have been several men here who reported that they had hernias after prostate surgery. You should do some research and discuss it with your urologist.
