    [USER=”2580″]DrBrown[/USER] [USER=”935″]drtowfigh[/USER] what does it mean when there was possibly a “shearing of mesh off of abdominal wall?” — which could be causing my chronic 1.5 year pain after a workout injury.

    The shear stress occurs because your tissues are more flexible and stretch more than the mesh.
    So when you bend and the mesh does not that is a source of pain.
    See your doctor to be sure that you do not have a recurrent hernia.
    If the pain is from the mesh then a steroid injection into the mesh may help.
    regards.
