    meshagony,

    Thank you for taking the time to reply back to my post. With so much negative posts it is encouraging to hear from someone whom have had a good experience from a removal. I visited Dr Brown last week for a formal intake and he assessed me and as very detailed and kind. It was amazing the care he took and he took the time to explain…[Read more]

    • Sorry for my delay. I have very little discomfort compared to what I had before. Maybe I have a little nerve pain but it’s not enough to worry about. I can get through my day without ever feeling uncomfortable. My spermatic cord survived, but honestly, I would have given my right nut… no pun intended. There is fear with every surgery but my…[Read more]

  • Good intentions,

    One of the issues is I am a hugely active person, exercising everyday so it is hard to moderate for sure. So I am hoping that a shouldice procedure would be a great way to get this poisoned mesh out of me.

    Its all about finding the right doctor where I wont lose all my savings as well.

  • Hello, everyone out there. I was wondering if anyone has had a non-mesh surgery/tissue repair with any of the following surgeons and your outcome and experience with them;
    Dr William Brown from Fremont , Ca
    Dr. Shirin Towfigh from Beverly Hills, CA
    Dr David Khang Nguyen Oakland, Ca ( studied with Dr David Chen out of UCLA)
    I really could use…[Read more]

    • Dr. Brown removed my hernia mesh in October of 2019. My experience had its challenges but it was well worth it and I would recommend him to anyone.

      These were my symptoms as I had logged them in 07/2019;
      lots of flank pain, groin pain, hip/leg pain. left leg goes numb, knee goes cold especially when I wear elastic or heavier clothing such as…[Read more]

  • jkirby,

    Good evening. It was kinda a miracle that I found your post tonight. I myself are looking for another surgeon to correct a left inguinal mesh surgery I had back in August 2019. As well I am in talks with Dr. Brown who I am making arrangements to visit in the next week or so to discuss a non-mesh hernia repair. The first surgery did not…[Read more]

  • I had my left inguinal hernia repair 5 months ago and I have been suffering from lower back pain often now.

  • To deeoeraclea,

    From what I have gathered from speaking with my doctor and other specialists non-mesh repair has to be done non-lapro, and even with removal that is generally how it appears to be done.
