    I have some pain issues going on with the opened inscion inguinial direct hernia repair that was done in 08 using barb mesh. The plug seems to be hitting a nerve or prying on a nerve when I set or drive and walk it is very painful and seems to be getting surprising hard to deal with. I have seen the surgeon that done the repair that recommended me to pain clinic and also sent me to a hernia specialist which let me know that the plug was my problem and it was irritating the illigaunil nerve and recommend pain mange ment. Which at this point has not been handled the pain. Meaning I am bed ridden! So much pain if I try to do anything. Also expert said don’t go and have a surgeon in this state just take it out there is a ton of communication mainly meaning chronic pain which is uncontrollable. Looking for a direction ?
