I asked a general surgeon about the younger people experiencing more pain with hernia surgery and he said that his patients had sometimes had similar experiences. He said that he chalks it up to younger people being more active and less willing to sit around and let it heal. He did say though that the younger you are, the less your chances of having any complications were.

And according to him, your MA career should not be affected in the least after recovery.
That last sentence is definitely good news ... music to my ears.
