Do’s And Don’ts After Hernia Surgery – Hernia Post Operative Care & More

Hernia surgeries are quite common.

According to latest studies, there are more than one million hernia surgeries per year in India.

Though it is a major step towards the permanent recovery of your hernia related problems, surgery is just one of the steps.

Once the surgery is over, there are a few things that every person should keep in mind to ensure the optimal effectiveness of the surgery.

Here are a few dos and don'ts, straight from the best hernia surgery doctor in Hyderabad, that can be followed to minimise any and every risk that may occur after the surgery.

Don't take complete bed rest as you need to improve your breathing and blood flow and the chances of those improving while bedridden are relatively less.

Do resume your day to day activities like walking around, getting out of bed, getting dressed etc from day 3.

Don't do anything strenuous without consulting your doctor about it.

Do use a western toilet and not an Indian toilet at least for the foreseeable future or as per your doctor’s instructions.

Don't lift anything heavy at least for the first 6 weeks to lower the chances of recurring hernia.

Do eat plenty of protein based food items as those will aid in rebuilding your tissues, muscles and the recovery of your muscle strength.

Don't smoke as smoking only forms hernia and that will lead to more complications and maybe even recurrence of hernia. Quit smoking completely. Avoid alcohol as well.

Do keep consulting with your doctor whenever you have any questions, concerns and especially if you have any kind of discomfort/pain.

If you take the proper precautions and follow your doctor’s advice religiously without deviating from it in any way, you can recover and be as good as new in no time!
