Pain From Mesh
Here is a photograph of mesh being removed from a woman who had chronic pain after a Lichtenstein hernia repair. The pain was debilitating and she asked Dr. Brown to remove the mesh. At the time of the operation, the ilioinguinal nerve was densely scarred to the mesh. After removal of the mesh she felt 100 percent better.
