      I’ve been sitting on the sidelines mostly this past year – reading other people’s stories. I had my hernia mesh removed last year and I was one of the unlucky ones. Bad outcome. I had two previous hernia repair attempts; one in 2018 to place mesh laparoscopically for a left inguinal hernia and then a “groin exploration “ to try to figure out the reason for my post op pain. Nothing worked and I was passed from one doctor to the next. Surgeons, Urologists, pain management specialists, psychologists. I tried everything including acupuncture. Injections, therapy, medication. Still the pain persisted. Eventually I sought out one of the best mesh removal surgeons in the country. I understood most of the risks and I had the mesh removed. Nerves were cut also. I now regret it everyday. It was horribly invasive and destructive. My spermatic cord and testicle were irreparably injured. My pain is worse than ever. I long to turn back the clock. It was A horrible decision. The surgeon is long gone having discharged me and leaving me to figure this out on my own. If you’ve had a successful removal – congratulations. If you’re thinking about having it done, pick a top flight surgeon, ask lots of questions and get multiple opinions. The damage can’t always be undone!
