    Mesh and Surgery Concerns

    Where have you read about mesh not being appropriate for thinner women, and about any toxic chemicals? My pain specialist wanted me to have my last hernia repaired without the use of mesh, but the dr said she disagreed. She said that mesh has been used since the 1950’s with no problems. The pain specialist said he believes a surgery with no mess causes more pain initially, but after has less of a chance of chronic pain associated. I’m now wishing I would have listened to him. I’m not sure what is the cause of my chronic pain (since I did not have it with my first hernia on the other side), and I did have mesh with that repair.
