    Very important questions.

    – read through HerniaTalk to learn about risk factors for recurrence. That has a long answer. Typically it’s constipation, chronic cough, obesity. Your surgeon can tailor this answer based on your needs and situation.

    – perhaps. There are conflicting studies that show reduction or no effect on sperm count after mesh hernia repair. The most recent studies say no difference.
