Thanks! I do appreciate all the good advice. I will certainly inquire with this surgeon about his experience with mesh removal. As for the Bard product, I am aware of the lawsuits and the issues people have had. But I also know that many surgeons prefer this product as it’s one of the most popular and as such one of the most tested. It seems even Dr. Towfigh has spoken well of it here. Perhaps its popularity actually has something to do with both its negative and positive reputation. But I can also ask about the folding issue. I did mention that to the other surgeon and he said he actually feels its less likely to fold in his experience than a flat mesh.
I’ll likely be holding off on the surgery for the time-being, but I can’t let this linger if it progresses or gets painful.
