Hernia repair on the stomach

I had done a stomach hernia repair surgery 1 week ago with mesh, and it's all good, I eat same way as before, normal bowel movements, a lot of walking even played soccer 2 days ago with my son. I am not feeling any pain today nor taken any pain killers. I think the success for a hernia surgery is getting the right surgeon, taking your antibiotic, and the right medication, try not to stay too much in bed, have a positive approach, walk alot but don't lift anything heavy but try act as normal as possible. Will be seeing My Doc 2 days time for his assessment.7w75j

Hi, I have crohn's and had an ileocecectomy Dec 2012. A few months later I formed a ventral hernia in my umbilicus. I recently had a open hernia repair using mesh. I am experiencing some discomfort- tightness, pressure, and burning that occurs when I change positions, bend, kneel, stretch, etc. I can feel the mesh and it is uncomfortable. There is still moderate amount of swelling in the abdomen, but I am sure that will subside over time. I am 2 weeks post op. I would like to know if these symptoms will pass over time.
