There, that makes me feel better!!!
I am still on light duty, only working 4 hours a day.
The first few days was kinda hard. I had not been on my feet steady at all. But I am much better now. Still only can lift 15 pounds.  :(  
First of Sept I hope to be up and running.
But and I mean but, I have to feel good.
I had no idea how much pain and discomfort I was having before the operation.
That's how it feels when your bowels are trying to escape through the groin area!!!!

Good to hear your recovery is moving along Ray.
Now if you can train yourself to not work like you are still forty years old is the big challenge.
I started tearing muscles and ligaments then needing therapy for that at about 60.
Its hard not to bull when you've always been a bull.
Retirement solved all of those issues.

Thats a good one! Retirement solving me tearing up my body... :D 
It is tough to go from a hell of a boy to a worn-out old fart though, that I'll agree on.

Both sides!!!
I did not notice much difference from day one or day 2. But I only had one side done.
Getting out of bed was the worse for me. My wife has bad legs and knees so no way for her to really help.
She probably would have ended up on top of me.  :-*
The office chair was the easiest for me to get up and down. Has arms to lower and raise myself.

 Hey Ray, I guess I shouldn't have said anything. Last friday while getting out of bed I noticed a big bunch just above my belly button. Finally got an app with the VA doc this last friday, yup he says, you got a hernia. I can't believe it, never heard of one above one's belly button. Now waiting on a c-scan to see how bad it is.

 I just can't believe I could get a hernia as weak as I am from the cancer. Can't hardly swing a 34 pound 376xp husky around cutting a downed r/oak 7' across and hollow inside.

A boss had one of those. 
I talked to many at the store about my hernia. I was shocked how many had one like mine. 
I know nothing about the belly button one.

Ed it is called an epigastric Or umbilical. They donít know why they develop. Mine just shows up one day.  It has been 3 years and we just watch it, it is not growing.  

Hope you are well, I am slowly recovering from the colon cancer surgery, taking a while to get strength back but I get around ok.

Hope all goes well with that colon cancer.
I am on a 2 week vacation from work!!!
I am taking it kinda easy but easing back into work around here.
Looking forward to getting behind the wheel of a chainsaw, have not picked one up for months. The lilac will take a trimming when I start the saw.
I feel fine and will go back to lifting grain when I go back to work.

I found the colon cancer surgery much less painful than the 1 hernia repair I had.  It's why I am in no hurry to do the other hernia nor the epigastric hernia.  
Glad to hear you doing some lite work, careful as you get back to work.  Watch body position, wear brace if they suggest it, etc.

 I had the c-scan last Friday and they sent me a disk of the scan but I can't tell what's what and I haven't gotten a written letter from who ever reads these things. I do know one thing, I can't bend over and do anything, it takes all the air out of my lungs and blocks any from coming in. When I do I get light headed feel like I'm having a heart attack. Takes me better than 10 mins to calm down. I don't know what to do I know they can't operate as they are scared that I'll get an infection which could pretty much finish me off.

 NW thanks for the science words, I looked them up and one explanation said it was inflammation of the navel. Maybe that's what I have and it will go away.

I have days like that. Hard to bend over, and still breath. And I am a small guy, maybe 155.  ::)
That's why I have an inhaler in my pocket all the time.

Well tomorrow I will be behind the wheel of a chainsaw. First time in months. 
I should be good to go now. Took 2 weeks off, when I go back in more than a week, I will be lifting 50# again.
 Never thought I would be happy to do that.
I feel so good now. 
I had no idea how bad I felt.
