I had Da Vinci Feb 8 and the catheter out Feb 16 and minimum problems, almost no leaking and no gushing so far and I am feeling fine from the surgery. The surgeon told me they saw I had a hernia on my right side, but they did not do anything about it, I guess they may have needed a signed permission slip, but my wife was available and they could have had her sign it.
The hernia did not bother me the first few days out, but I noticed a swelling on my lower right side and I had a pain in my right testicle that I assumed was from the prostate operation and then I find out the pain is from the hernia and not the prostate operation.
So now I am feeling fine from the prostate surgery, but now I can barely stand up or walk because of the hernia pain so now I need to go back in for another surgery. I had a hernia on my left side about 15 years ago and it was a simple out patient deal, went in one morning and out that afternoon and I would hope that this is the same thing, but now I am in pain again and the surgeons are booked up for 2 weeks so that slows my prostate recovery down a bit as I can not exercise.
Has anyone else been through a hernia on top of the prostate surgery?
