Has anyone ever had an abdominal hernia repaired using mesh?

Very common: About 90% of groin hernias, and probably 75% of ventral abdominal her OAS are repaired using mesh. Mesh reduces the chance the hernia will come back, but is associated with some unique potential problems. Fortunately, these are uncommon for the group of patients that have mesh implanted, but an individual's experience cannot be predicted. Hope this helps! ...Read more
