Thanks for the links. The runnersworld link had a ton of info based on actual experiences. The livestrong link was basically telling what the hernia is. Bottom line is probably around 3-4 weeks before starting back in a big way. Good news is that it sounds like one is mainly restricted by the pain they can take after a week or so. Not looking forward to the time off but I guess this is the best time of year for this sort of thing. Thanks again.
Ok, from 1st hand experience... I had a surgical repair to the ole hernia on 31 Jan. I felt kind of miserable the first week and, of course, did no running or exercise of any kind. Second week started feeling a lot better. Ran 5 miles on 12 Feb with no pain. Basically 12 days recupe time for me. So, I guess time off is going to depend on severity but I have had very positive results.
