Had mesh hernia repair. Doc says the sharp pain in my groin area is inflammation where he put an anchor stitch at the pubic bone. Have to live with it for 6 weeks before he will consider it a problem.
Is this unusual? Why is there an anchor stitch there, is that always the case? What can he do after 6 weeks to alleviate this? What can I do in the interim?
