I am going to have to chime in on this topic. I had a large mesh removed 3 months ago and ever since that surgery I am having trouble with my lateral femoral cutaneous nerve on my right side. I never had any problems with it before the surgery. My skin is numb to the touch and I have tingling and burning pain that goes from the crease of my leg to just above my knee. I have had a nerve block by a pain management specialist, after mesh removal, and that didn’t help. I also had a re-exploration looking for nerve entrapment but that wasn’t the issue. The nerve may have been compressed in a tight repair and it has been loosened up. I also still have lots of inflammation and swelling that may be contributing to the problem. I am going back to pain management and perhaps a neurologist for help. It is the kind of pain that is hard to ignore, I feel it all the time. I am hoping it is something that will resolve with time. It gives me hope to hear that others have had the problem resolve over time. Wilfred, I hope you find resolution to your problem. I certainly know where you are coming from and it is not fun!!
