i just had some surgery preformed on me two days ago. i had two small hernias inside of me that had to be fixed. for those that dont kno, a hernia is where your body has been strained, especially around the groin area, and causes small breaks thru the underlying tissue surrounding your intestines which then causes loops of your intestines to come out. mine werent that bad, so no visible lumps or anything could b observed. so needless to say, i had a buncha old doctor guys touching on my chicken bag which was not that fun. anyways, i feel pretty bad, the pain meds they gave me cause constipation, another one of life's precious gifts. they also filled up my insides with air so they could have better mobility moving around my organs while operating. they said that i cant lift anything heavy or bend over too dramatically for about a month to 6 weeks. this really pissed me off cause i just began to get into a heavy cycle of weight lifting and was seeing results. o well, what can i do. i have no idea why i just posted this thread. thanx to those that read and responded to this thread encouragingly.
