    Abdominal incisional hernia

    Thanks so much for posting. I hope you will find this forum helpful.

    Some questions:
    1. What operation was your incisional hernia from? Where exactly was the hernia? And how big?
    2. How was the hernia repaired? Open or laparoscopic? Since Sepramesh was used, shall we assume the mesh was placed inside your abdomen as opposed to on top of the muscle?

    Yes, mesh can distort the view flyby an ultrasound. But not completely.

    Once mesh is in, my feeling is that ultrasound is no longer the choice imaging.
