    Inguinal Mesh Removal

    As I mentioned, my case is quite complicated! I first had a triple neurectomy. Next had lap mesh removal from previous femoral hernia repair, done in Virginia beach by general surgeon. Mesh was covering a torn muscle, which was then repaired open tissue repair. This repair failed. I then developed two hernias on the right. Right was repaired open tissue and left had to have new mesh because of failed tissue repair. Once again, I developed pain possibly from mesh pulling on left and recurrence on right. The final surgery I had was open abdominal wall reconstruction because of multiple hernias on both sides and muscle atrophy in midline. This was in September. Now suffering from same burning pain on right and pain across my abdomen and pelvis. Newly developed pain and pulling at belly button. My body may not like the mesh or I have to wonder if it is retracting with the pulling feeling. but at the time it seemed the only way to fix things. I hope your fix is quick and with less complications.
