Mesh removal after hernia repair
At this time, there is no specific test.
I am working on a research project to determine exactly that problem.
That said, a true mesh allergic reaction is very very rare. You would know it. There would be a red patch of skin outline of your mesh. However, many have an intolerance of the mesh, with persistent inflammatory reaction and/or chronic pain. That is much more common. There are no tests for it now but hopefully, if my research pans out, there may be one soon.
