I had surgery to repair 3 hernias, one umbilical and 2 ventral, a week ago. One hernia involved dead tissue. Luckily no organs were involved. I am almost 50 years old. I have trouble taking a shower. I can't lift a gallon of milk. My work approved a leave of up to 13 weeks. My surgeon is telling my employer that I can go back to work in another week. He hasn't seen me since I left the hospital. I was off for 6 weeks when I had my gall bladder out and that was laprscopic. Can this be right?
