Sent you a private message about RVA and dentistry 🙂 Good luck with the appointments, and hope things continue to improve. Maybe I’ll actually reach out to YOU if I have questions about articles I come across or the anatomy of the area in question! Will be interested to see your progress.
I am trying to plan an inguinal hernia repair (possibly bilateral) myself in the next month or two in town and obviously worried myself about possible complications. I personally know about five people who have had the surgery (all with mesh), including my grandfather decades ago. All but one suggest they recovered 100% (and the exception says he’s still satisfied) but several did have some issues. And oddly enough most said open repair was easier recovery than laparoscopic. Was thinking I’d go with robotic laparoscopic repair but I also know the cost will be ridiculous. I have insurance, but I am certain that would max out all of my deductibles, etc. Wondering if it’s worth it.
I don’t currently have a ton of issues with discomfort and pain, but it seems on the weekends when I am more active and standing a lot, I do have problems. And when I overexert myself or cough or sneeze, it’s uncomfortable. I have a small bump and could probably just wait, but it seems wise to just get it fixed sooner rather than later. I’ve basically come to terms with the fact that non-mesh repair is very hard to come by and almost never done here in the states. And all the surgeons have said they’d have mesh if it were them, and that non-mesh can have complications of it’s own and somewhat more likely to need repair at some point down the road. And any surgeon doing a non-mesh repair isn’t going to have a lot of experience doing it, unless I travel somewhere, which is cost prohibitive.
