At the age of 62, I have been diagnosed with an inguinal hernia with surgery recommended.  I have been engaged in some kind of athletic activity since grade school with no serious injuries.  I am very apprehensive about the surgery and almost depressed about missing part of the  triathlon season.  Anybody out there have experience with this surgery?

I had the surgery several years ago.  Mine was no big deal; just had to take it easy for a week or so afterwards.  If they can do it laparoscopically recovery time is minimal.
