    Close friend just had the operation done. He is still moving around very slowly, in the bed most of the time watching tv. Its been a week now and he says he is ready to get back in the gym, but only to do light lifting. Not sure how much the surgery costed, but it only took about an hour. Hope this helps some.

    I have had a hernia.

    Two ways to surgically correct it...open abdomen or laparoscopic. I had a regular incision and they went through my abdominal wall...never again. I couldn't even walk for a week. Laparoscopically you're walking in days. Both methods will sew in mesh.

    As far as cost...it was free...I live in Canada.
