Gunny Is Home After Surgery
It's only day surgery, but it's still surgery.
I've got whatever kind of hernia you get around your belly button. I've lived with it for years and it had only been a minor annoyance until a few months ago when it put my in the emergency room at my local hospital. The attending physician mentioned a few catch words like gangrene, infection and death and that got my attention, so I'm getting it taken care of.
I'm told I'll be off work for two weeks (like I can really afford that) and then no heavy lifting for a month after that.
Anyone else out there had it done that can tell me what to expect?
