Hi

Thanks for posting your query

It is good to know that you have resumed work after 2 simultaneous surgeries

Here are common post operative precautions you need to take care of for 3 to 6 weeks depending on your complete recovery

1] Avoid straining at work
2] Do not lift weight
3] Do not stoop
4] Avoid sitting on the floor
5] Avoid Squatting
6] Do not sit cross legged
7] Avoid Constipation
8] If you get cough or upper respiratory track infection get back to your doctor in priority
9] Avoid physical relation with your partner

Hope this helps

Hi

Thanks for posting your query

Avoid fried and fermented meals just to prevent constipation and prevent gaining weight so that it does not harm the hernia repair
