Had hernia repair surgery last december right at the incision and above it jus have this burning pain got a nerve block yesterday but it got worst wa?

I had right inguinal hernia surgery in 2010, burning, numbness and feeling of my cord being pulled by mesh, does mesh need to be removed?

I had right inguinal hernia surgery in 2010, burning, numbness and feeling of my cord being pulled by mesh, does mesh need to be removed?

Possibly.: Please revisit the surgeon who performed the surgery, if possible, for further recommendations, especially since your surgery was 4 years ago. If these are new symptoms, it may have moved or post-op adhesions may be bothering you. It is unusual for burning and numbness of the skin to occur 4 years after surgery. There may be a new process going on. ...Read more

Either way, it would be best to bring this to the attention of the surgeon who repaired your hernia and go to him or her for an evaluation. ...Read more
