What risks are involved in inguinal hernia mesh removal surgery?

Hernia mesh. Removal can be associated with pain, bleeding, and recurrence of hernia.
"trauma" Most types of hernia mesh are designed to scar into the adjacent tissue. Therefore, it can be quite traumatic to remove mesh, and even more difficult to (re)repair the hernia w/o mesh. Ironically, if the mesh is infected, it tends to come out quite easily.

Yes, it's possible. Anything that will raise the pressure in the abdomen can exert the same pressure on a hernia and cause it to recur, despite having just had a repair. While 50 days is right within the threshold of regaining maximal tissue strength, hernia repairs can fail at anytime. Even months or years later. Have your surgeon re-evaluate. Read more...
