Had mesh surgery on right side about forty years ago. Young surgeon told me it would take twenty minutes or so and all would be good.

Once opened up it turned out the hernia was much larger than expected. He did a fine job!

Surgery took over an hour, was successful, and not a moment of trouble since. The surgeon, Dave Storey, is still in Whitehorse and retired this year. 😊

I just checked and no new scars! So... Most likely "no such surgeries I've noticed! Now back surgeries... Think I've supported an entire Medical Specialty!

Best!

My outie belly button has gotten more outie. Gonna have to see about getting it fixed. I think finding a good surgeon or any other Dr is a crap shoot.

You and me both. Umbilical hernia, I’ve had it as long as I can remember.

Yes….but mine was just an Umbilical Hernia repair! A big difference from the groin!

Heck, I came home and rested for a couple of hours…..mainly waiting for my head to clear. Changed out a bunch of light bulbs in the house….went to work 2 days later. Though a disclaimer about the work…..I was working in the Control Rm! 😉 memtb

Triple header 9 years ago…… doing good so far.
That was a painful experience I wish I never have to go through again.

Double inguinal in 83 with mesh. Told my Urologist last visit that I was having intermittent blue ball pain from my spermatic cord. He said a simple, painless 5 minute procedure would fix that for life. They go in & snip the nerve that accompanies the cord. It is a very small incision which would be glued together. He said it is an option if you find the pain to be vexing.


Throttle fixes everything. If it doesn't fix the problem, it’ll end the suspense.

Had a right inguinal and a navel done years ago.

Seems that if i have been doing something kind of taxing that day or on my feet for a long time i get a pain on the lower repair.

If it happened during the day i go lay down for about 15 20 minutes and it has gone away,like it never happened.

Had mesh hernia repair in March of 2022, for a hernia that was discovered in 1997. Surgery was scheduled for 7:30am, got to the surgery center at 6:30, was back home at 11:30am. Up walking immediately after surgery, and the remainder of the day, drove to drugstore about 2:00pm to get some medication. Could have gone to work the next day, but my wife wouldn't let me. Went back to work two days after the surgery.
Dr. Laker in West Bloomfield Michigan did the work. The guy is youngish, but he is absolute aces in my book.

From MD's that I have spoken with, it's very common surgery, but one that gets its share of complaints from patients afterward.

Mine was a year ago, and it's finally getting better.

But the operation was a real bitch, and I was a long time in recovering.

Had one side done with mesh about 13 years back and it healed up quickly. No discomfort at all.

Same here. Mine was done laparoscopically.
