No one knows: Your problem is most regrettable & i sympathize. It is unfortunate that surgeons have inserted mesh for a variety of abdominal & pelvic problems in a race to outmaneuver mother nature. Long term consequences are coming back to haunt them. Unfortunately, no one can guess the answer to your question.
