Hello, I'm scheduled for inguinal hernia surgery this week and I'm becoming concerned about post surgical pain. In order to empty my pouch and in order to relieve the gas, I normally need to bear down fairly hard. I also regularly find myself relieving the gas in my system by lying down on the floor and moving side to side while often bearing down. Has anyone on the site had this surgery and if so how did recovery go? Thanks.
