Lord, have mercy.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

Lord, have mercy.  May you have speedy recovery!

I know how painful the recovery from that kind of surgery can be. Lord have mercy!

I had a double hernia repaired about 20 years ago. The recovery was very painful. But I hear that hernia surgery is much more advanced today, and the recovery shouldn't be too bad. Hang in there my brother.
