I had this surgery done today and didn't get great post-op information from my doctor or other web searches... this article was TERRIFIC for not only post op advice, but a great overview - thanks! You answered almost all my post op questions except one... if the mesh is brand new (first 72 hours) and hasn't fused yet with muscles... can I mess it up by climbing into a high bed? Going up or down stairs? I am trying to take it easy, but terrified I will "undo" it by bending over to pick something up or twisting to reach something... I definitely am not doing anything I consider strenuous or lifting anything... but can everyday movement be bad in those first few days?
