|Hi..I got a copy of my surgery report from the surgeons office. I noticed a lot of people saying I need the specific mesh information and to obtain a report. My report only stated that a mesh was used nothing in detail...how do I find out what type of mesh was used? 8 months since my open inguinal hernia surgery and having sever pain groin and aroudn the scar...|
|I have had 5 hernia repairs with mesh, in my lower stomach area, my last being in 2005. I recently laid In the tanning bed, I was burnt badly. A few days later I realized I had this rash underneath my bra area and down on my stomach. I tried all the otc products to treat the rash but it never really went away. ... has anyone had a rash as a complication?|
|My son had hernia surgery using some type of mesh in January. He was supposed to see his doctor the next week for a check up. Before he could see the doctor, he ended up in the emergency room because he started throwing up and could not stop. They had to give him several different medicines to stop the vomiting. He has been to the emergency room four times for the same thing since January. They keep telling him that it has nothing to do with the surgery. I couldn't even get his doctor to come to the emergency room to see if it was from the surgery. They have run every test possible and it keeps showing nothing wrong. Last night was his fourth trip. They can't find anything wrong and he has never done this before the surgery and I can't even get them to consider that there is problem associated with this surgery. I am at a total loss as what to do. Has anyone had any reactions from hernia surgery like this? They want to do another procto!!!!! Please send me any information that you may have. I am open to recommendations. Thank you, Diane|
I have a rash too. I had inguinal hernia and it was repaired using the mesh in December 2007. Since then I have developed a rash just above the penis, next to the surgical wound, and slightly on the base of the penis too.
I suffer from eczema, which I assume this is, although after reading your post (which I had not noticed previously) I was thinking that maybe sometimes the mesh surgery can cause a rash, although I do not know why. Mine is probably eczema, but I never had it there before the surgery. It appeared shortly after the surgery and has remained ever since. I do have quite a few eczema patches on my legs and feet, and arms too, and cannot get rid of that. The new rash might be the same or different.
