• Does anyone have any statistics on the percentage in Inguinal hernia patients that have had a chronic or long term allergic reaction to mesh, such as the Bard 3d mesh or a polypropylene mesh? I have heard of an immune inflammatory reaction which can be caused by the mesh. I am worried about the possible inflammation that can occur if I have a…[Read more]

  • Hi MeshOrNot, Can you please tell me what you mean when you said that there have been people “destroyed by desarda and by shouldice”? Please, Please explain.
    I would like to think that there is a backup plan of being able to get a mesh operation if the open desarda or shouldice method fails/Destroys. Thanks for your help as I am quite fearfully…[Read more]

If for some reason a few years later the open Hernia repair fails, then is it possible to have a second surgery, but this time the surgery would involve using mesh?

Yet the open incision once sowed up after the colon surgery never splits or tears back open? What is so fragile about the flesh…[Read more]

So why would my abdominal incision being sewed up be any different…[Read more]

    If someone has an open surgery with no Mesh, and that surgery fails years later, what would be the next surgery one would have for the reoccurred hernia? Would it be open, mesh, or mesh robotic?
