    Hernia surgeons in London,Ont, Canada area?


    For sure these are not easy questions to answer.

    Chronic pain after hernia repair can occur with and without mesh implantation. We don’t have any hard evidence to say that one is necessarily better or worse than the other as chronic pain after hernia repair didn’t really get the attention until the mesh era, but those who were doing non-mesh repairs regularly, before the mesh era, are very clear to say that it was definitely a known problem and also hard to deal with.

    I would rely on your surgeon, who you should trust to provide you with the right evidence and the beret repair as tailored for your needs. Feel free to see more than one if you are not getting your questions answered.

    As for the nerve: yes, it is sometimes necessary to cut a nerve that may be at risk for damage after hernia repair.
