    Thanks for the update. I am currently two months out from a tissue repair done several years after a robotic mesh removal. Worry every day about recurrence. My doc used absorbable sutures. The area isn’t particularly painful but it’s uncomfortable as I feel a large knot type feeling there, and it feels kind of weak. Sort of like when I had the hernia. Been that way though since the surgery and I suspect it’s all the work done plus scar tissue and may take a long time to feel more natural. Was hoping it would feel great by now but guessing I won’t really know for many more months. Glad you’ve had a good outcome.
