Reply To: Need advice whether to have surgery or not.
Here’s another thought – talk to a surgeon who removes mesh, even though there are few. You’ll probably get more in-depth advice one-on-one than on the internet. Most of them also use it for repair, from what I’ve been able to figure out, so should know what to use and how to use it. They will have seen what can go wrong and might offer some advice on how to avoid the problems. You might even decide to have them do the work if they’re available. Get several opinions, if you can.
