    Mesh Removal/Neurectomy

    Thanks for your post, Steelersfan85,

    Hernia repairs, as with any operation, have their own cadre of potential complications. Sounds like you had a redo hernia repair with mesh and triple neurectomy.

    Though dysuria, insomnia, and headaches may rarely be associated with hernia-related complications, such as mesh infection or even just secondary to chronic pain, I would make sure you are first evaluated for more obvious (non-hernia-related) causes of your symptoms.

    The stabbing pain may be related to your hernia repair or the revisional surgery. More details are necessary to help figure this out for you. Removal of the mesh can be done at any time, if it is necessary. It is not related to whether you had neurectomy.
