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.

Hi, I am just a bit concerned, I suffer from constant constipation and experience a small amount of blood after each movement, I have been checked for hemaroids before and there have been found to be none present. Tonight I had a rather painful stool and I ended up with quite a lot of blood present, three to four tablespoons worth. This has never happened before, I have been suffering from terrible adominal cramps and pain for the past six weeks especially before and after a bowel movement. I have also been feeling quite lethargic and rundown and have been nauseaous for months now when it comes to food. I thought I had a stomach bug but am starting to think it may be something else. Can you help me with any advice please?
