Inguinal Hernia Mesh Repair Pain
Hello. I have had a right inguinal laparoscopic hernia repair with a large 3D bard mesh in December of 2013. Have been in pain and discomfort ever since. Opposite side of repair felt tight and tender shortly after procedure. About a year after surgery i started getting rash symptoms upon physical exercise (mainly cycling). Running also makes surgery area painful.
Have seen quite a few doctors in the Chicago area that tried to convince me that the mesh needs to stay inside me no matter what and that i should look into pain management. That’s what i did. Injections and physical therapy don’t help. Massaging the area makes it even more painful.
At this point i am looking to find a specialist that has experience with my situation. Can anyone here make a recommendation of someone i could contact ? Willing to travel out of state.
Thank you in advance,
