Thank you Dr Towfigh this is very helpful to know, I will be continueing to stay fit prior to removal now.
I also saw a presentation of Dr Novitsky explaining the value of taking L-Arginine prior to surgery, is this a good idea too?
Are there any other OTC supplements that are good to take pre-op to maximize the possibility of a better outcome?
How often do you find that the lap mesh over the iliac artery is too risky to remove as a result of the patient not having enough fat there to buffer it?
In other words, how often are you able to remove all 100% of a lap placed inguinal flat mesh?
