Recovery time is 4-8 weeks and the BEST NEWS of all, I was told I could return to weight lifting in June 07, HURRAY, HURRARY!!!!!

that's great news, nudgie. Be sure to ask them if there is any type of exercise you should avoid when you return to the weights. Depending upon the route of the incisions there can be a risk for developing a hernia along the incision with certain exercises. Continue to enjoy NED.
