Reply To: Mesh Removal Question
Another surgeon with much experience in gut problems is Dr. Peter Billing of Transform Weight Loss. He has heard many stories and removes mesh. But he also uses (or at least used to use) mesh for laparoscopic hernia repair. So he has a certain type of objectivity. He will talk to you over the phone, somebody on the forum is scheduled for surgery with him this month.
It seems like, at the least, an open-minded surgeon would want to perform exploratory surgeon to look for physical problems and/or inflammation.
