Reply To: 5 years of pain from hernia mesh
I had mine in for 6 years and had it removed 6 weeks ago. Your best bet is to have an MRI and a cat scan and send it off to a surgeon who knows how to read these scan as they relate to mesh and see if there are any issues with the mesh. Dr. Igor Belyanski was able to see in my cat scan that the mesh was defective. Two local surgeons in Ny said everything was fine when they read the cat scans and MRI’s.
dr. Towfigh also has mentioned that she is able to read these scans as they pertain to mesh.
so in my opinion step one get these tests read by experts to rule out that something is wrong with the actual mesh-them you can go from there. It will also be helpful to now if your mesh was implanted laparoscopically or open.
