Re: Prolonged pain after hernia sugery
I know that you posted this a while ago, but I was wondering how you are doing? You had this done in America? What type of mesh did you have put in? I am an American wife of a NATO soldier here in Belgium and I had this surgery done last September at the Dutch Hospital. I had the largest Kevlar (Gore-Tex) mesh put in and it covers my stomach from right below my breasts to 2 inches above my pubic area. They did it by LAP and put 13 hole sites in me with 2 fastners in each site. That's 26 fastners. Well, I just lost about 23 pounds this year and I am having pain in my spleen and liver areas from this. Actually, I think I have an infection from this mesh. I am going to Istanbul, Turkey soon to have a detailed check-up (over 65 tests and procedures) and GOD willing they can figure out what exactly is wrong. I am heading back to America this Spring (PRAISE GOD) and I just might look about having this thing OUT of me and have the dissolvable mesh put in. Wonder if it can even be done. The /Belgians are 20 years behind having any real advanced medicine, I just wish I would have known that before I let them put this in me. Unfortunately, I was here just 3 months before they did the procedure.
Anyways, I hope and pray that you are better. I was OKAY with this after about 8 months after the surgery, but here I am having some other issue from this. Really sorry I ever had anything done over here. Looking forward to getting back to my good 'ole US of A where our medical rules the world!
Thanks for listening and GOD bless you and your healing!
