Restoration of normal function
The golden rule is after surgery is to avoid activities which are painful.  Gradually the discomfort after surgery will subside.  
Ordinarily you should expect to feel discomfort in the lower abdomen and groin for a few days.  This improves quite dramatically allowing you to return to normal daily activites.  
Initially we would advise you walk yourself to recovery.  As your confidence increase you can increase the pace and duration of each walk.  As you progress you may safely introduce swimming and cycling to your regime.  

The rehabilitation process is very carefully laid out from day one to full return to activities at the end of week 3. Obvioulsy this is in the case of a simple straightforward herni. Any added issues will compromise this timescale. Often hernia is accompainied or the cause of other issues which will be allowed to start healing or be treated by the repair of the hernia.
