Hernia bilateral + DFSP on the groin = mesh or desarda?
I am a man 52. last year I was operated (Mohs surgery) with DFSP, the rare form of skin cancer. They had to go pretty deep during the Mohs operation, so I do not have too much “content” under my skin on the groin area. A month ago I was diagnosed with double bilateral hernia too. Fun. Now thinking of the appropriate way of operation, I am not convinced about mesh at all (worried that it might trigger the cancer, although this might be a silly thought, and also all the infestation it can cause, an alien body in mine…), and kind of tend to prefer Desarda, however I am not sure whether with my DFSP, this is an appropriate method. Whether that tissue they need there needs to be supported by fat (which I do not have in that area anymore) or it does not need any of these? Does anyone know anything about this – i.e. which method to choose if you had DFSP on the same area?
