Reply To: how long for bothersome scar tissue to go away?
The big question is – why is one side different from the other if the same material and procedure was used by the same doctor? He should have his notes from surgery about what he saw and what he did, and would have the best idea about why there’s a difference. Could be something as simple as a dissolving suture that’s not dissolving. Maybe, I hear they do that sometimes. But, really, your surgeon should be the first person you talk to, in this case, I’d say. You had one perfect result from him, he should be able to get you another.
If you do talk to him ask him what type of mesh he used. Just for reference, for the larger hernia mesh repair world out here. You’ve had the old style repair done, which is interesting in itself.
