10-15 days after the surgery, you can return to office work, avoiding physical effort for 4 to 6 weeks. 6 to 8 weeks later, patients will be able to exercise.
We recommend patients rest in bed during the first week. However, it is essential to move out of bed for a few minutes every hour to eat, walk, move, go to the restroom and perform Isometric exercises during rest to improve blood flow (contract and relax calf muscles).
Patients must maintain a flexed posture at their hips when walking. By walking bent, the abdominal muscles and fascia repair protected from being pulled.
