yup, i, too am amongst the group with a post-
open-RP inguinal hernia. specifically, it appeared to be a re-occurance of one repaired in around '84. ugh. am 6 weeks after this hernia surgery, and in another week or 2 ought to be back to full speed..i know this doesn't set any records, but since '84, i have had:
left hernia repair; right hernia repair, open prostatectomy, appendix/impacted bowel, and left hernia 2nd repair...i'm ready to quit getting carved on for a change!
i know there are those who can easily beat this story, and i definitely feel for ya...
anyway, all part of growin' older, i figure...hopefully, i got several more years--i'm almost to 59
take care all,
