Re: Hernia mesh failure and coughing blood
I agree he needs to be seen immediately. The mesh if it tore loose could be puncturing the bladder, or he may have a urinary infection. Coughing up blood can be a sign of pulmonary emboli (blood clots in the lungs), which can occur following surgery. Neither of these things should be occuring, so he has to get checked out either by his surgeon or in an ER without delay.
