A member asked:

Could mesh from an inguinal hernia surgery cause chronic pain at the base of the penis/scrotum area? if so, what can be done? (other than painkillers)

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Nerve entrapment: It could if nerves were entrapped in the repair. This may also be effected by the use of permanent versus absorbable sutures. Hypersensitivity is not unusual for 2-3 weeks, subsiding thereafter. If yours has persisted longer than that, notify your surgeon.
