Incisional hernia repair

Hello, it's been a long while since I visited. I had an open resection for recurrent diverticulitis last year. Now I have a very large hernia that I have to get repaired soon. I'm interviewing a surgeon this week. Has anyone had it done and if so did you have the mesh put in. I just did a search here and saw someone talking about different kinds of mesh. I only want to have this done once so I'd like to make sure the doctor uses the best product for me. I dreaded the resection because of the pain factor and recovery time. Is this surgery anything like an open resection? It's such a large hernia that I doubt it can be done laparoscopically.

Goody2shuz, I was reading one of your posts and your story is very similar to mine. I'm glad to see you're still around.

p.s. I don't regret the resection, it was the best thing I could have done at the time. I'm just sorry I didn't heal properly.
