I saw the surgeon today. I can run. I can walk. I can lift with my upper body. Nothing using my lower body. No jogging. Jogging is rougher than running? My surgery is scheduled. Surgery is out patient. Procedure takes about 45 minutes. The new mesh patch is a permanent fix. I’ll be back up and about in 24-48 hours. I can go back to running and upper body lifting in 2 weeks. No lower body workout for 4-6 weeks.
