WWE.com has posted an update on Roman Reigns noting he underwent successful hernia surgery, and will be missing approximately 4-6 weeks of in-ring action, but according to Dr. Chris Amann, closer to 6 weeks due to the severity of the injury.
The Mayo Clinic’s online definition of an inguinal hernia describes it as “a condition that isn’t necessarily painful by itself,” adding that the hernia “doesn’t get better or go away on its own, however, and it can lead to life-threatening complications.” Mayo Clinic staff also note that inguinal hernia repair is a common surgical procedure.
Reigns has been transferred to a recovery area and is “doing quite well.” Doctors will continue to monitor his progress with a particular focus on preventing infection and insuring that his intestinal functions return to normal. He may be discharged from the hospital as early as tomorrow.
