thanks fo rthe inquiry.
I had the hernia surgery done last tuesday, Feb 27 and while the surgery went well the post op did not. When they moved me from the operating room to the recovery room I guess they forgot to give me any pain medication and by then the doctors were gone and they did not have permissioni to give me an injection so they gave me oral vicodin and that took about 30 minutes to work and I was in the worst pain I have ever had. the prostate surgery had mild after affects companed to this hernia pain and discomfort.
I think the 2 surgeries in 3 weeks has made the problem much worse than if I had waited to have them 6 months apart, but I figured if I was already recovering from one surgery I might as well recover from both of them at the same time an dhaving the hernia slowed down my recovery from the prostate as I could not walk or exercise much.
My incontinence seems to be under control after 3 weeks (Da Vinci on 2/8/07). The doctors at VA started me on 1/2 a Cialis as soon as the catheter came out and I actually woke up the other morning with a pretty decent erection, but that was before the hernia surgery and the pain and discomfort from that has pretty much stopped any other concerns or actions.
Other than that I am getting along fine and a little better each day and I am confident I wil be back to normal pretty soon.
