Thanks Watchful, I appreciate you taking the time to reply and look forward to the update.

I’m getting the impression you feel mesh make have been a better option in your case?

After operation complications are a worry abroad definitely. I think though at least Dr Kang has done mesh repairs in the past.

Baris woke to find his German surgeon had decided to use mesh. It did cause problematic and Shouldice I believe helped him subsequently.

Clearly no fail safe surgeon or surgery.

I have seen suggestions that mesh is ok or likely to be in elder, 60 plus, patients, no idea if true.

In your own case, I remember Shouldice saying to me if tissue repair goes wrong you can always have mesh after. Might that be something you’d consider of beed be?

I’m still thinking yours is still early days and may settle in a few months.

Wishing you the best.
