      I would like to ask if there are also Ovitex meshes that dissolve over time (are absorbed by the body?), and if these meshes are used the same way (for the same hernia types) as the ones which are instead permanent. I seemed to have read something about this but I am not 100% sure what is meant really…

      Oh and also if there is an hernia size limit for the Ovitex meshes, and if they can be used on a bilateral laparoscopic too…

      You can watch and listen to all the questions we covered on HerniaTalk tonight. We covered a wide range of topics, related to mesh, non-mesh, choosing the right surgeon, knowing what questions to ask your surgeon, and more.

      Go to my YouTube channel to watch:

      Yes, Ovitex comes in the form of fully absorbable, like other biologic meshes, and also in a variety of sizes. All this information can be found on their website.

        Thanks a lot for your answer! May I also ask what you thoughts are on the Ovitex absorbable meshes? I know you mentioned in the past that these meshes end up causing recurrences…

        Thanks a lot again!

      Can inguinal mesh cause a ‘halo’ type effect on a whole side of the abdomen well beyond where the mesh actually sits? I’ve had a fullness/tightness and puffy feeling all the way up my right side since the surgery, along with mild soreness and some tightness for 2 years. Dr Proctor said a halo effect is possible (maybe hypersensitivity to foreign body?). Considering removal but worried because I’m not in terrible pain.
