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.

diet she has to take high fibre diet so that she may not suffer with constipation ,avoid lift weight cough & after healing of stitches do some mild exercise after taking advice by a physiotherapist to avoid recurrence of any type of hernia bec it is just due weakness of muscles.
