    Inguinal Mesh Removal

    Dr. Towfigh- thank you for your response. I don’t know what would denote “debilitating”, but I have been unable to hold down a job for the last five years, have any kind of a sex life with my husband, or participate in any of my previous activities such as hiking, walking, etc. However, every time I have had a surgery that I was told was going to “improve my quality of life” ( starting with the laparoscopically assisted vaginal hysterectomy in 2007 which precipitated all of these additional problems) , it led to more complications. Because I have been in so much chronic, daily pain I cannot wrap my head around the possibility of being worse than I have been. Therefore, at this time, I have decided to not have the surgery. Perhaps at a later date I will re- consider. But at this point I am putting myself in Gods hands and believing for healing. At 46 years old there is still a lot of living I have left to do.
