Inguinal hernia recurrence
Thank you Dr. Towfigh.
If I elect to have the open repair, my surgeon mentioned using mesh or maybe a plug and patch. I have read about issues with plug and patch. Do you recommend a particular type of mesh, etc. ?
I am also wondering about going to clinic which specializes in hernia repairs, such as yours. I live in Arkansas, but I am willing to travel. I am going back to my surgeon in a couple of weeks, I have many questions for him. However, if I do not feel comfortable with his answers, I am ready to make the decision to travel for this surgery.
What are you thoughts on traveling for this surgery, is there the potential for follow up care issues, etc.?
