    Great news Bill, sorry to hear you were in for three days.

    I was in and out in one, no drain and very little pain, but each case is different.
    You will be fine once the wound heals up a bit.
    Did they put mesh in, in strengthens the muscles and should prevent it occurring again.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    Sounds like the problem was the same as mine Bill, surgeon told me afterwards the hernia was the size of a baby head, 9 stitches across the stomach. My weight was the main problem, chicken wire !! inserted, again told its stronger now than the main stomach wall, great this old age lark, kt

    Unlike the one I had done in 65 there were no stiches on the outside this time.
    Skin held in place with a massive waterproof dressing which I had to keep on for two weeks.
