Upcoming op for recurrent sport hernia. Prev. Op was open suture without mesh. New surgeon will use open anterior w/mesh. Risk of testicular damage?

Caution. Not a simple problem. If you have had a previous open repair, and you're still having pain, I would strongly recommend a laparoscopic repair IF you need one. Only about 20% of inguinal repairs are done this way, so you'll have to find a surgeon w/ enough training/experience. Try the Americas Hernia Society website to find one near you. Hope this helps!
