    Chronic pain and recurring Hernias

    New update…..I finally visited the ohsu pain clinic and am trying a mix of meds and a nerve block….but before I could get the nerve block done I found out I have ANOTHER new hernia…this time on my right side. To say I am frustrated is an understatement. I do not want to undergo another surgery if I am just going to end up wth a bigger one down the road for mesh removal. My thought is to jump ahead and just get the whole mesh removal over with and repair everything at once. I obviously am going to keep her to g hernias. And the pain on my left side is still debilitating. I have an appt. To see a new surgeon at ohsu that deals with complex hernias and specializes in abdominal wall reconstruction. Hoping for an aggressive plan of action!
