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.
