A 52-year-old female asked:
Is it possible for mesh repaired ventral hernia's to start reoccurring just four months post-op and a couple weeks of heavy lifting at work?

Yes: Ventral hernia repair with mesh reduces a hernia recurrence but doesnt prevent it entirely especially if you are doing heavy lifting. If you think it is recurring have your surgeon re evaluate you.
