      CT Scans looking for ingunial mesh problems. Iodine IV for contrast? Barium ingestible? Is the whole abdominal wall scanned or just the mesh area?

      I would think if they decided to go for a CT scan (like they did with me), they will most certainly look at the whole area. When considering surgery I was told by a hospital that they would first do a full checkup to avoid “bad surprises” during the surgery e.g. cancer or other unexpected situations…on the other hand hernia specialists have told me it is not needed, and some went as far as saying that only physical examination by a specialist is needed i.e. not even Ultra Sound…go figure…
