Inguinal Mesh Removal
So sorry to hear about your struggle. It sure sounds like your pain is dibilitating. I can relate! It may be worth communicating with some of Dr. Towfigh’s mesh removal patients for a different perspective. My original lap mesh removal was somewhat successful, but at the same time I had open repair of torn muscle that Dr. B thought may be contributing to my pain. I had decreased pain and was doing well with PT, but then fell down the stairs which made things fail, so that is an unfortunate circumstance! It is a hard decision to make since there is no way to prove that the mesh is the cause of your pain. I pray for people who are in chronic pain, I know how difficult it can be. I hope you find the answers you are looking for. Don’t give up and stay strong. Many times I’ve said what you said, I’m only 50 and still have lots of living to do, hopefully one day pain free!!!
