    Just letting you guys know that I just got back from surgery.

    I went for a bilateral hernia and I'll be out for 4 weeks. I'm taking extra time just to be safe.

    So far it's pretty good. I got some pain, but not a ridiculous amount.

    So, yeah. You might see me around here a bit more.

    Cheers. :approve:

    Bilateral means a hernia on both sides of the body.

    I hope it goes by quickly.

    I'm thinking about going to Texas next week. Long drive though.

    My son had that done at age 4. It does happen. Basically, in boys after the testicles descend into the scrotum, the openings through the abdominal muscles (inguinal canal) are supposed to close. Sometimes one or both do not, and there is a weak spot that can allow a hernia to develop.

    May son was running around and climbing the furniture 2 days after he was released from the hospital. Kids heal fast, young adults relatively fast but not as fast as children. Old folks like me . . . well it takes awhile.

    No, not deadlifts.

    I had one as a baby, so doctor thinks it might have been already there, but didn't come out until now.

    Yeah, laughing is painful. :frown:

    Best wishes for a speedy recovery. I had both sides done, but a year apart. Putting on a seatbelt was no fun for a few days. Oh yeah... and coughing. :surprised

    Yeah, yeah, Get better and recover as fast as possible Jason. Hernia isn't fun. Maybe instead of going anywhere, stay home. Luggages are heavy, travel is a little weary, and that isn't good for overall health.

    Best wishes for a speedy recover, Jason. Yeah, don't laugh, don't cough, don't :uhh:...nah, you probably already know not to do that. :biggrin:

    You might want to stick to the physics threads until you're recovered enough to laugh. The GD threads might be too painful. :wink:

    Thanks for all the support everyone. :smile:

    It's rather hard to sleep like this, so it will probably remain like on and off sleep until things feel really good.

    I guess it's time to watch some Infomercials tonight. :uhh:

    Ok, here I am like 2 days later. Things have improved, especially the pain part. I never thought I would need this many pain killers before.

    I don't use as many pain killers now though. I try not to, but sometimes... especially yesterday, I just had too.

    I can walk around fairly well. I haven't been on the computer much because the chair isn't that great and it is in the basement. I don't like going up and down.

    Anyways, so far so good.

    Cheers!:biggrin:
