Could use your help docs! My daughter had umbilical hernia repair with mesh. Now she is having unexplained swelling on her face?

Swelling. Although swelling of the face, in the absence of other symptoms, suggests an allergic reaction, allergy to mesh is extremely uncommon. I suggest a combined consultation and evaluation both with your family physician or pediatrician as well as her surgeon.Her symptoms may or may not be related to her recent surgery and a thorough evaluation and consultation is necessary to sort things out.
