    No bruising just an ache. One thing they didn't tell me but I found out today on a letter from the surgeon to my GP with a copy to me, was that I had 3 hernias. Two right hand inguinal and a femoral hernia. All three covered with mesh. No wonder I ache down there!

    Poor you! I know my hubby had a double, but three? You are just greedy. To think initially your GP didn't think you had one. Hmm. Well, just take care and lets hope the ache goes away soon.

    Well, going by a well-known 'ditty', Gobbels had none ...

    For now the ache is a good thing. It will remind you not to do anything daft. I do have experience in this field. If you start to do something daft then you will get a stab of pain which should prevent you persisting.
    My experience is from quite a few years ago. Since then I have enjoyed lots of hill walking, the odd bit of rock climbing (only old party pieces no harder than severe), the odd scramble (maybe the most dangerous and exposed things that I have ever done) and now I get exercise in this season practising the ancient craft of hedge laying.
    Start exercise gently but firmly. You may well find yourself eventually doing things that you have never done before. In my modest 77 years my only significant surgical interventions have been hernias about 20 years ago, and stenting about seventeen years ago after I temporarily dropped dead after a vf event. My ambition is to beat my late mother in the longevity stakes, preferably with intact marbles. She lasted to 98. I have already overtaken my late father.

    Femoral hernias are tricky because at any time they could strangle the artery...my hernia was supposed to be an inguinal but turned out femoral.

    Nasty. You could lose a leg for that (unless treated).

    Yesterday I came home from work to one of the deepest, most profound moments in a man's life.

    My new shed had arrived.
