      today i spoke with two more folks who had bilateral inguinal mesh removal without any longterm issues….the word on this board and elsewhere is that mesh removal should only be attempted in grave and serious circumstances after it has already done a ton of damage….but these hopeful stories are saying something different…maybe getting this garbage out is possible…Bruce rosemberg is a very negative story…he pruports to hate mesh but then does not support removing it…maybe because he gets gratificaction from being a go to expert in this area?

      This man doesn’t regret having mesh removed even though he still has pain, he can walk better and is more mobile.

      I think he waited years to get it removed.

      In his video he explains why it’s an op that is not plain sailing…

      I’m not sure if thus will help you or or Chuck. But it’s an honest appraisal from someone who hated having it in him and has had it removed.

      I tried to look for news on the removal of the resorbable prosthesis but in vain.,, Perhaps because it is not worth considering to operate when a prosthesis is destined to ‘disappear’? but this holds true as long as it does not lead to infection, migration, entrapment of the nerves, all of which are of an urgent nature. Or, if there is no literature, it means that the absorbable is more tolerated by the human body for reasons that should be studied. Keep it up in the meantime I’ll do more research

      From another forum…

      “I’m in UK.. had inguinal hernia mesh removed 3 and half weeks ago… making good progress… only some incision pain if I move too quick… told not to lift anything heavy for 6 weeks. Went back to work after 2 weeks (desk job) … but didn’t drive for 4 weeks… glad to have that horrible plastic mesh out of me.”

      From same forum….

      “Sorry for the late response. I did have mine removed. Are you in the UK? I had the surgery at KIMS hospital in Maidstone. The surgeon was Mr Simon Bailey: https://www.mtw.nhs.uk/consultant/mr-simon-bailey/

      He’s very open about options and no BS when it comes to most things. He’ll give you an honest assessment and help.

      It was a life changer. It’s been almost a year since the surgery and I’m pretty much a normal person. I need to get back into working out again though. I used to be super fit but after three years of not being able to work out it’s been super hard to get enough energy. I’ll get there though.

      Let me know if you have any questions.”

      And one who is a cilleague of the person who did Good Intentions…

      “I found Dr. H. Zahiri in Annapolis Maryland and he was amazing at removing the mesh. Come to find out he trained directly with Dr. Igor Belyansky who is the leading international physician expert on Robotic Mesh removal. As you can imagine I tried to make an appointment with Dr. Belyansky but his schedule was packed. His office said his partner was available; I was skeptical at first and now 1 year later I can truly say he was a miracle worker. Look up Dr. Igor Belyansky on YouTube. Dr. Zahiri trained under his and is just as skilled and more accessible. The only stickler is the office will not take on patients who have insurance they do not participate with and did not take cash pay patients for these surgeries as it is a huge price tag.

      His office is Surgical Specialists in Annapolis Maryland.

      Prayers to you all”

      William, Dr. Peter Billing of Kirkland Washington did my mesh removal. He has a new practice now, Transform Weight Loss.

      Ah thanks Good Intentions. Sorry about that. I’m sure I’d heard Dr belyansky name before. Have you mentioned him?

      Or maybe it’s just that they both begin with B… This old age lark isn’t good.

      Here is a thread for Chuck, from the past. It’s not really good news but not really bad either. Just a story about a professional athlete, and even a national sporting group, that got fooled but learned their lesson.

      It’s about Dai Greene. I will bump that thread up after I post this.
