      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.

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

      dr towfigh…i was catheterized…my murderer physician sam carvajal…bragged he could do double ingunial repair in 15 minutes…then insisted on cathing me…i didnt suspect the cath because i didnt get symptomos for 6 weeks after the operation…but i have been in agony now for 9 months…no one has any answers….been tested prostate fluid etc….repeatedly…no bugs can be found…so the pain and urinary problems continue unabated…some say its cpps…other say its the mesh….i had a small painless hernia…and will likely be dead by next weekend…thanks to medical incompetence…i dont even think i had a hernia on the other side…so tragic…was perfectly healthy and this doctor simply massacred me….was about to get married and retire…now i am heading for the cemetery.. Dr yunis looked at my mri and was perplexed…just said consider prostatitis….never had a single prostate problem prior to this botched surgery….please do not tell people that lap mesh tep is the best surgery…it actually should be outlawed plastic mesh has destroyed so many people…it has no place in most hernia surgery

      thanks Good Intentions…i am tired of screwing around and just want the plastic garbage out…i hear you that attitude will be important in persuading a surgeon to work with me…i am looking at Igor Belyanski for the removal…Yunis praised him to the highest degree….any other info you can share that will prepare me for removal much appreciated…

      thanks doc…but yunis had no clue…said prostatitis…i never had prostatitis pre mesh…this is prob cpps induced by tons of plastic…difficult or impossible to fix in all likelihood

      uh good intentions…you made the exact same mistake with bilateral ingunial mesh,,,,saying chuck did x or y…you could use yourself as an example

      Good intentions you made the exact statement in a thread a year ago…that you can never go to a tissue repair after mesh repair complications…you are so condescending about my issues with mesh…did you forget that you made the exact same mistake as i did and had to pull your own mesh….you seem to be doing well enough….and i just wanted to know what plans you have for a tissue repair in the event your hernia recurs?

      thanks dr towfigh…my issue is that i had a fairly large indirect hernia…and i am only 9 months out of my botched lap tep mesh surgery….my fear is that mesh removal would lead to an immediate reherniation…and i would be 10000 miles from dr kang….who appears to have created the most effective repair in the world….it makes me very sad that i am in this situation…because i was misled by doctors into beleiving that lap tep mesh is the gold standard…in fact lap surgery is very invasive to the tissue under the skin and requires blankets of mesh to complete…my failure to see Dr kangs excellent information…cost me the rest of my useful life…now i cant urinate…and am trying to find a way to remove the blankets of plastic garbage from my body….

      Thanks Dr Kang,,,god bless you. Is there any validity to the notion that lap installed mesh must be removed laproscopically? it seems your procedure is easier faster and more reliable way to remove mesh—why arent other doctors doing this? it would seem safer than robotic surgery.

      Have you had to cut nerves when removing lap mesh? How do you deal with mesh that is wrapped around the spermatic chord? the Vas deferens? Does this force you to leave mesh in the body?? I would like to pursue treamtment with you but it is very difficult with the distance and language barrier etc. Do you consult online for $$$? Happy to pay whatever you ask?

      Dr. kang – this is from a knowledgable poster…any thoughts..again he is not a revered hernia surgeon…

      If you go in from the front you are cutting through healthy tissue and cutting down all the way to that last muscle tissue and then cutting through that to get to the mesh. if you go in lapro all you have to do is peel the mesh off the backside of the muscle. Going in open, visibility would be poor and it would be hard to see your bladder. If your urinary issues are caused by mesh on the bladder that might be hard to see, You had 2 Bard 3d max meshes…6×4 inches…these are large meshes that extend for left right up and down…i think they would be hard to remove openly. Definitely an appeal to getting a removal and a top tissue repair in one throw.

      Dr. Kang….thanks for your response, Many have messaged me privately saying this solution would be damaging because it would require you to cut through muscle tissue and open the inguinal floor because the mesh is placed on the backside of the abdominal wall…and that nerve damage would result.Obviously none of these people are prestigious hernia surgeons. So your 5 patients have not had any chronic pain, nerve damage or other adverse findings? I know taking mesh out lap or robotically is no walk in the park–taking up to 5 hours to accomplkish bilaterally…so a procedure that would take 2 hours…get rid of the mesh and repair the hernias with the best repair in the world seems appealing….i wish you had a longer track record here…thanks so much Dr kang

      follow up….i assume the total time of the operation doubles if i have bilateral mesh??? but assuming that both sides could be repaired using the superior kang repair at the time of removal…this operation would seem to be a no brainer. Good Intentions do you have any thoughts here? Is Dr. Kang on the verge of revolutionizing mesh removal??? or are there dangers you see to the open removal process? its a little troubling that this has only been attempted 5 times…but i never understood why 5 hours robotic surgery hunting and pecking for mesh fragments was a good idea…what dr kang proposes would seemingly guarantee getting it all out…would love to hear DR Towfigh weigh in as well….

      Dr. Kang….thanks so much for your reply. The fact that the best hernia surgeon in the world takes the time to answer question from simple patients nearly brings me to tears. As usual everything you say makes sense…and given that a robotic removal of my double inguinal mesh would take 4 hours your approach has many advantages. After you remove the mesh…would you execute a kang repair to prevent the return of the hernia in the same operation? I had a large indirect hernia on the left hand side and a tiny one on the right that were both repaird with two large pieces of bard 3d max mesh….just have the following questions:

      1. In the 5 removals that you effected…what side effects did the patients suffer? We are told over and over that open removal of lap installed mesh is a big no no. But maybe once again your reputation as an innovator will change the world.

      2. i would imaagine that a 3 inch scar would be required for each side of the inguinal canal to remove the mesh and repair the hernia?? Given that many US surgeons leave a 3 inch scar to simply repair a hernia…3 inches to remove and repair seems outstanding! If you believe you can remove the mesh and repari the hernias with 3 inch incisions on either side of the groin…i would seriously consider this option. My main symptomns are continuous burning in the perinuem…and after urination ejaculation etc…some have told me they were completely cured when the mesh was removed,,,,God bless you Dr kang…I tell everyone i know in the US with a hernia that they need to see you and only you….

      for the record i have two large blankets of Bard 3d max mesh…6 x 4 inches each…why i ever agreed to have this junk implanted i will never know…its apparently standard to plant huge pieces of mesh to prevent other recurrant hernias…if any doctors in our country had the brain of Dr Kang this would never be needed….
