Rt thigh feels numb, feels like my rt foot is slipping on ice. Had a rt inquinal hernia mesh repair two years ago. Could mesh be the problem?

In brief: Unlikely

While sensory nerves of the groin and lateral thigh can be damaged or cut and cause pain or numbness after groin hernia repair, these nerves do not extend to the feet, or even to the distal thigh.
It may be a disc problem of the spine.

In brief: Maybe

Would ask if you have had any back pain? If not, then maybe related to mesh.
