    It sounds like the expected “foreign body reaction”. You’ve had the peritoneum peeled off of the abdominal wall and pieces of mesh inserted in between. It takes time for your body to cope with the foreign material and cover all of the mesh fibers.

    Do you know what brand of mesh was used?

    Since you are only 4 weeks after surgery you’ll just have to wait and hope. It’s still very early. Good luck.

    Sorry.. Had a bialateral hernia operation nearly 5 weeks ago. I get stomach aches that come and go and my Doctor said that is refered pain.

    You need to add even more detail. “Bilateral” just means both sides. Laparsocopic, open, type of hernias, type of mesh, etc. The more detail the better.

    Good luck.

    I am a little past 4 weeks recovery from an inguinal hernia surgery. I also have feelings of my stomach insides “moving”. It’s most prevalent when walking I feel like my stomach is tightening up and when riding in a car the stomach feels almost like it’s bouncing around on the inside.

    Sorry.. Had a bialateral hernia operation nearly 5 weeks ago. I get stomach aches that come and go and my Doctor said that is refered pain.

    After walking my muscles ache and I get the feeling as if I have eaten something that has upset my stomach without all the symptoms.

    I can also get this feeling just when I relax very weird.

    I am very scared it is something more sinister.

    I’m sorry but this is too vague to offer much thought or opinion, you may want to elaborate more if you are looking for some ideas or a dialog.

    What was the surgery? What is the discomfort? Have you had a follow-up with your surgeon? Your surgeon is probably the best place to turn to first, as post-op appointments or contacts can be illuminating during recovery, and they at least know more details about your procedure.
