As has been previously said, I don't update this thing very often, but I do use it to keep track of life-changing events, so here goes.

I had the hernia repaired on Wednesday May 7th. There is a good deal I could tell you but most of it would be TMI. It wasn't the keyhole job we'd hoped for so it'll take longer to recover from but I'm already glad I made the decision to get it done.

It's sore - no doubt about that, but I've had some expert guidance on pain relief so I'm coping well.

Dave and Kat have been marvellous and I'm in very good hands.

Did you get the Goretex, if you don't mind me asking? My dad had a fairly major hernia that needed some artificial binding material to repair (to put it genteely), and we've been joking about using him as a tent for years as a consequence.

Boo for it not being keyhole in the end but glad that it all went well, and hope that healing is straightforward.

I don't think so - Goretex wasn't mentioned. I have enough jokes about tents already!!

Thanks! I'm doing very well at the moment.
