I am in my early 20s and need to have an inguinal hernia repaired. My surgeon says she’ll do an open repair and will use a polypropylene mesh. How does it withstand body growth? I’m pretty sure I’ll get bigger as I approach my 30s. As far as I understand the mesh does not stretch. Would this create any risk for me?
Depending on how big the hernia is I would recommend you ask them to just stitch it up without mesh or find a surgeon that will The desarda repair or shouldice. If the hernia does not hurt I would just leave it alone though.
