    Got hurt at work last week, am curious, how many of you out there have lifted too much and gotten a groin/inguinal hernia?
    How long were you out of work?
    How long until you could lift and carry tools/material again?
    How long until you felt "normal" again?
    Any complications?
    Anyone have to change jobs? limit jobs? turn away bigger work?

    Just trying to gauge what I'm in for.

    I'd love to hear about your experience, from hurt, to diagnosis, to surgery/repair, to recovery, to now.
