    Failed bilateral TEP repair

    Good points.
    Your surgeon should help figure out if your symptoms are due to recurrence of the hernia or from the mesh or both.
    Removal of mesh that was placed laparoscopically is no small feat.
    In Germany there are excellent surgeons for hernia related pain. You are right that the most famous ones do only open procedures. But they can help you figure out why you have the pain. If they feel that the mesh is an issue, then they should be able to help in that realm too.

    Some names to consider:
    Dr Muschawek
    Dr Conze
    Dr Bitner
