Totally agree, GI. And the funny thing is, no one can tell patients how long mesh repairs are supposed to last. 30+ years may be unrealistic for mesh without complications. No one is bothering to track that. It’s just assumed they’re ‘forever.’ If someone did a good study, it could potentially be shown that tissue far outweighs mesh in terms of the very long term complication rates and even recurrences. But of course no one is looking at that, nor are they really able to yet as mesh hasn’t been the gold standard long enough.
