Thanks for all the responses. Makes me feel a lot more at ease.
My daughter was with me at our exit class from hospital and when Donna told her this a.m. of this problem, she said they mentioned putting on jockey shorts for the support. So Donna and I immediately did that and now about
7 hours later most of the swelling was gone! Whew.
Know what you mean about
lifting. Have to keep reminding myself about
that and Donna keeping a very close eye on me on that. Has a specific water jug for my water cup/coffee maker that she maintains that is only about
1/2 full so I do not lift to much.
Never had a hernia but from experiences that have been shared know that is not something to try for.
Thanks again for all the input. You guys and gals are the greatest.
