Thanks for the response!
I had it implanted using lap, so I definitely know I need a lap removal.
I have been on nortriptylene, gabapentin, Percocet and cyclobenzaprene to try to manage the pain but it isn’t doing much to help at this point.
I saw Dr. Chen at UCLA and he blamed everything on my weight- I weighed the same before the surgery and was an active runner. Now I can barely walk through the grocery store. It is horrific.
I am sorry you had a similar experience! How are you now that the mesh is out?
Thanks so much for the quick response and feedback- my fear has been that it folded over or that a tack wad placed improperly. But nobody will take me seriously. Ive had a MRI 2 CT scans and Ultrasound- all of them are ‘perfect’. It is getting frustrating and depressing. I can’t live the rest of my life like this. Heck, I don’t know If I could handle another 6 months!
