Has anyone had an Incisional Site Hernia?

My TAH was in April. I had seemingly no problems (with this anyway) until this week when I helped my husband move a heavy desk from the patio, up 4 steps and around a corner. It was quite a strain. Anyway, that night, I noticed a bulge over and below the right side of my "bikini" incision.

I saw my GYN today. She poked and prodded and said I have an Incisional Site Hernia. I have had three surgeries and the same cut was used. She says that the URO will probably clean up the edges of the incision area when he does the repair.

What can I expect? Is this as bad as my TAH was?

Has anyone had an Incisional Site Hernia?

I had a large incisional hernia repaired in February. It wasn't as bad as the TAH but I had better pain control, so I don't know what it would have been like without it. I had an epidural in for several days and went home on narcotic drugs for a few days after that. I had a drain in when I went home but it was removed a couple of days later. No big deal there. The recovery was about the same as for the TAH in terms of time. It isn't just a little thing, or at least mine wasn't, but it's not anything to get too excited about, either. At least that was my experience.
