    Alternatives to mesh

    Hi Connier
    Thanks for your advice.
    Unfortunately the bit – “You should be in proximity to one of these” is a bit off target.
    I live in New Zealand, east coast USA is 12/14 hours flight one way, Asia ditto, India 16 or more, East Canada 16 and Europe 25 at least.
    Given the relative NZD v USD the cost of flying & accomodation is an issue, but much worse is the fact I’d be on my own afterwards. I have checked this – no NZ surgeon will want to know about an overseas operation that has gone wrong & neither would my insurance company.
    Hard calls either way.
