I had my inguinal hernia on my right side repaired with “keyhole” mesh in 2009. I have been pain free, but about a month ago I went to the ER with extreme pain to my right lower abdomen under my bellybutton. They did a CT scan and didn’t find anything. I am much better, but still getting sharp poking pains from time to time in the same location. I am concerned the mesh might have migrated. Is there any test that can be done to check for this? Also, I got A record of my surgery done in 2009 but it had no mention of the manufacturer of the mesh other than stating “keyhole” mesh. Is there anyway to find this info?
