How Long Does It Take to Recover from a Ventral Hernia Mesh Surgical Procedure?
Ventral hernia repairs are usually performed with an open or a laparoscopic surgical procedure. This can shorten the recovery time of the person getting the procedure, to allow the person to get back to the normal scheme of life quickly. Many times, how quickly you get back to normal after a surgery is called your “quality of life.” If you are able to recover quickly after a surgery, then it may stand to reason that your quality of life will remain the same as it was before the surgery.
If you take a long time to recover from a surgery and experience prolonged pain in relation to the surgical procedure, then you may experience a lowered quality of life after your ventral hernia surgery.1
