Right Inguinal Hernia Pain five years post-op!!
I am Sorry to hear of your ongoing pain. It is so tough to know what to do and to find doctors who can tell you what to do.
2 weeks ago I had my mesh removed from an open central hernia repair and a mesh plug removed from an inguinal hernia repair. The surgeon also removed 3 nerves in the area. 2 weeks later I am pain free on that side after 3 years of pain and repairs! I was almost pain free from the moment I woke up. The down side is that he repaired the original hernias using healthy tissue but the chance of recurrence is now much higher. I am working on losing weight and will really be careful with exercising and lifting anything. But for now I am hopeful! (the down side is I had a repair done on the other side of a new hernia at the same time and that side is now painful but hopefully it is just post surgery pain that will go away as it is supposed to this time!)
Where are you located?
