Ice and Ibuprofen and rest buddy and a cold beer now and then.
Note to self: don't eat the peas at Ducke's house. LOL!

Thanks for the peace of mind. I've been icing and taking the anti-inflamatories but after the surgery I tried to sit at the computer and being upright was a mistake. The doctor gave me no restrictions but I sure don't feel like shoveling sidewalks right now.

Don't ever trust what a Doctor tells you.
he most likely never had a Hernia operation before.

Step away from the snow shovel.

Take your pain meds as directed - don't wait until you feel pain. At that point it takes time for them to work and well... you'll be in pain until they do.

My wife used to work as a nurse. I get that lecture from time to time, so I'm passing it along.




ETA:

Lightbulb moment!

"Ducke's Ice Cold PeaNUTS" - They'll melt in yer mouth.
Grab a sack or two today!
