Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for choosing H.C.M.Forum.
Your partner got operated for triple hernia surrounding appendix, on 29-1-13. He got operated perfectly by putting the mesh.
As his age is 56 there is always a possibility of getting pain on straining and coughing etc. So he must use light food, and see that he passes stools daily, should take more of water, and fruits and juices.
Hi should avoid smoking completely so that there is no cough and related pain.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery.
Best regards.
