Debilitating Pain from Mesh Repair

Pain From Mesh

No mesh hernia repairHere 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. 

You can read more about Mesh or No Mesh Hernia Repair.  Dr. Brown strongly feels that since the risk of chronic pain from the mesh is so much higher than the recurrence rate, that hernias should be repaired without mesh.
