Hello. Welcome to healthcaremagic. The precautions she need to take is avoid heavy weight lifting, avoid constipation and chronic coughing as it can lead to recurrence of hernia. She must be fed with normal diet. The operated wounds would heal in 7 to 10 days. There are no side effects of the mesh.
Wish you a good health.
