This is a 'best case scenario' recovery. Bear in mind that not everyone recovers at the same rate. There are a number of features which will influence your recovery not the least of which is the type of repair that you have. Assuming you have an inguinal hernia then there is widespread agreement in the literature that laparoscopic hernia repair (keyhole) recovery is about 1 week faster than open repair.
The suggestion that recovery is 1 day faster with laparoscopic repair is ill informed.
Advice to patients should be that after keyhole surgery analgesics are rarely required and full activity should be expected 7-10 days. After open surgery analgesia will be required for up to 5 days and full activity achieved between 2-3 weeks.
