Helping you to make a speedy recovery after surgery for groin hernia repair

Planning for your return

Talk with your occupational health service, your local hernia service if you have one, or your GP to work out when and how is best for you to return to work.

Depending on the nature of your job, you might want to ask your employer about returning to work on lighter duties at first. This means:

  • Doing work that is mostly paperwork, using a computer or telephone.
  • not carrying heavy items any significant distance.
  • avoiding tasks such as prolonged loading or unloading, packing or unpacking. 

If you have an HR Department at work, they will be able to advise you regarding sick pay or any other benefit you may be entitled to during your time off. Alternatively, talk directly with your employer.
