Give it a couple of days with the ice and the swelling will come down.
Ya got to put your feet up and relax no straining yourself.
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!
