Umbilical Hernia Repair - Day 5

Today has been a good day so far. I haven't taken any pain medicine and am only slightly feeling the affects. I do have to move slow and carefully lest I cause myself any issues. I would say that I am probably at 70% of normal capacity right now. I find that I am more aware of what I should and shouldn't do at this point because of the lack of pain medicine. I can more acutely feel what is going on and just how much any certain aspect will impact the incision.

Oh well...I still love my abdominal band. It really does make the entire process easier. It acts in a very similar fashion to the pain medicine and helps alleviate some of the pain, etc.


  1. I also had an operation on an umbilical hernia. And the same difficult postoperative period. To reduce the risk of relapse, my doctor recommended a Hernia Belts. It is comfortable, does not twist, does not crush. Not too hard, but it holds its shape well.
