      Folks. I am simply shocked that lap surgery for hernias is legal. I have been doing a ton of research on this and am shocked. It’s seems like nearly everyone I talk to who had lag lap mesh surgery has some sort of complication. Be it pain. Mesh migration. Adhesions. Bowel resections. Foreign body. I have yet y meet a lap patient who doesn’t have a problem. If they don’t now, they will. Can anyone e comment on this? Doctors?

      This is causing to to seriously consider mesh removal. Before the garbage has a chance to move into organs nerves or the spermatic chord.

      Why don’t you start following the advice that hernia experts are giving you instead of making these ridiculous, dishonest posts?

      You will be better off as a result…as will be the readers of this forum.

      Hi Chuck ,
      I have seen lots of post from you and I can see you feel very helpless and angry . I myself probably might need lap mesh op for my femoral hernia which I really would like to avoid ! Anyhow there is lots of ppl with great experience in lap mesh ! I understand you are based in USA . You have lots of great surgeons that can operate on you and remove the mesh for you with minimal risk . You have Dr Yunis and Dr Towfigh whom I am sure would do amazing job with your issue I think they might be even able to perform tissue repair after that possibly ? Please get help as it’s available to you .

      “Consider laparo-endoscopic surgery according to TEP or TAPP, as there is less postoperative pain and less chronic pain if the surgical team is well trained.”

      “Provide adequate training for the learning curve for laparo-endoscopic surgery. The learning curve is longer and has rare but serious complications, especially at the start.”

      You never know if it is the real specialist or a “student”-doctor is doing the surgery. In Belgium, it happens that if you don’t take the private room (where the doctors may charge 5x or more); the student-doctor does the surgery.

      Are you kidding me? Great experiences. Lap surgery requires big blankets of plastic mesh. It gets shoved through a tube and then the surgeon tries to place it using chopsticks and watching a big screen tv across the room. Watch one of these operations sometime. The mesh starts folding right off the bat and the surgeons start shooting tacks into the body to try to hold it down. The complications are massive even with experienced surgeons. And why does wall papering the entire ab wall with mastic make sense. Easy and safe removal monika??? It’s tough as hell to drag this plastic out. It’s a brutal surgery that yunis recommended against.

      Chuck I have never said it’s an easy operation at all . I feel very sorry for you that you are in this situation! It must be very hard for you . However I at some point you will have to make a decision whether you will take the mesh out or leave it . None of these options are perfect but that’s all you have at the moment . There is quite a bit of people on here whom when thru the removal of the mesh and are doing very well . I get that you are super scared . I wish you all the best .
