My father in Ireland is having keyhole hernia surgery tomorrow. I am a little worried as he is in his early eighties. He is very strong and healthy yet but I know that a general anaesthetic is dangerous for the elderly.
I am just wondering what exactly keyhole surgery for a hernia entails and what the recovery period will be like.
My Mother(who is 22 years younger than my father)is hoping that he will be well enough to accompany her to a relative's wedding two days after the surgery. Might this be possible?
