I appreciate that there are a lot of patients that have had adverse outcomes after inguinal hernia repair. That said, statistically, that % is low. At 15+ years, the expected complications from hernia repair is 1-5% recurrence rate and less than 5% chronic pain. I hope this give you some relief.
That said, the best outcomes are from those who perform the most repairs. So, pick your surgeon wisely.
