You probably meant ventral hernia repair. Also known as incisional hernia. Herniation from the incision area of a previous surgery. These are different from inguinal hernias in that they are typically outside of the inguinal region of the abdomen. The inguinal canal is not involved.

There is still much discussion ongoing about whether or not mesh is appropriate for ventral/incisional hernias. Mesh can cause foreign body chronic pain no matter where it is placed.

Can you give more details about your situation? Somebody might have advice relevant to your specific situation. Good luck.
