Former 'Coronation Street' actress Kym Marsh is "finally" making some progress following her January hernia operation, after she went on a 3km walk

Kym Marsh is "finally" making some progress following her hernia operation, after she was able to go on a 3km walk.

The former 'Coronation Street' actress recently admitted she had suffered "a few infections" which have set her recovery back, after going under the knife in January, but she was "chuffed" to be able to go for a "longish walk".

She wrote in her OK! magazine column: "I achieved my first longish walk this week.

"I managed 3km, which is a lot given my recent surgery.

"So I was chuffed with that as I got to take the dog out in the sunshine.

"It seems to be getting better every week and I've been given some more exercises to strengthen my groin area, so I feel like I'm making progress finally."

Earlier this month, Kym said she felt like "lumpy" 'Raggy Dolls' character Sad Sack – a doll who was thrown in a reject bin, along with several others, because he wasn't stuffed properly – following her hernia op.

She said: "I'm back at work on 'Morning Live', but it's been a slow recovery.

"The operation itself was a success, but I've suffered a few infections since and it's set me back.

"I'm hoping to speak to a physio who specialises in post-hernia operations as I really want to get back to exercising again.

"I feel like my body has changed.

"I can only control so much with my diet and I'm losing my muscle definition.

"There was a show called 'Raggy Dolls' and I feel like the character Sad Sack, who wasn't properly stuffed and was all lumpy."
