Chronic pain and recurring Hernias
I finally had surgery!!! On my left side that has caused all the pain they removed all the old mesh and closed up the hernia using healthy tissue in that area. He also did a nervectomy on two other nerves in that area. So far that side has been mostly pain free since surgery! He then repaired the new hernia on the right side that I guess was pretty bad. He used mesh for that side. I am experiencing a LOT of post up pain in that side..but it has only been two days. I was in hospital for 2 nights and just came home today. I am using a walker and that has helped a LOT as well as a taller toilet seat with bars. This is a must for anyone who has abdominal surgery. Now I am just laying in our couch and will do everything I can to heal this time around! Hopefully this is the end of this hernia journey…but I doubt it. ::-) but at least I know that awful mesh is out of me!
