      I had my mesh removed 5 months ago. I still have mild autoimmune issues but they have improved. I am a Celiac and I still can’t eat wheat without experiencing some mild symptoms.

      That’s funny, I’m meeting with him the same day. My surgery is on October 11th. Maybe I’ll see you there!

      My original hernia mesh complications began after 3 years, not 10 days, however, be very careful who you choose to do any corrective surgery. Stay away from mesh surgeons and just seek getting it all out. When my complications began, a 2nd surgeon added more mesh on top of the mesh that was giving me complications. This has only added to my issues. Mesh sucks, just find someone to get it out.

      Thank you for your info and sharing. I’m posting my response here publicly so we can help others. Best wishes to you.

      You’re not alone. Every doctor has thought I’m nuts too but I’m going to be reaching out to your surgeon. Please update the board to talk about the challenges you face after surgery. We’re rooting for you and the unfair journey you’ve been on is now part of your life purpose. Truthfully speaking, my wife and eight year old son have only been getting a small part of who I can be. This hernia mesh has ruined me since 2003, but I haven’t given up completely and still fully intend on having a full recovery.

      [USER=”2967″]MeshMangledMerritt[/USER] I’ve been having mesh issues and chronic pain for 15 years as well and am now into my mid 40’s. What tests, if any, did you have done in order to get the VA to approve your surgery? Did you have any specific tests that showed the mesh was related to your health issues? I’m having difficulty getting any doctor to look at me seriously and have been slowly losing hope that I’ll ever feel better, despite my symptoms matching typical problems for hernia mesh complications. Any help is much appreciated. Thank you.

      My removal surgery was open. I’m sure there is some damage from the amount of mesh removed and all of the stuff attached to it, but I feel great! I do not think I have nerve pain. If there is any, I don’t really notice it because the discomfort is much less than what it was prior to surgery.
