    Is bloating common in either a torn mesh (other complication with the hernia repair) or sports hernia

    Thank you so much!

    Can mesh really become brittle and tear? I would think but the time it could become brittle and tear the body’s muscular system has repair itself. Please let us know what you find out about bloating. I’ve had significant bloating as well 10 1/2 post Op. Slightly relieved by herbal cleansing tea.

    Bloating is certainly something that I experienced with mesh reaction and with hernia recurrence. It was pretty significant and very frustrating and uncomfortable. Maybe this symptom will help with diagnosis. I have not heard of a torn piece of hernia mesh? What type of mesh do you have? A doctor recently told me that polyester mesh will sometimes become brittle and break, resulting in a recurrent hernia. Hope you find the cause of your problems. This is surely frustrating, but be persistent until you find the correct diagnosis!! Best wishes.
