Hello People,, Well i found out that my hurnia operation has caused an immune response, i had the hunia mesh put in 2 and half years ago and always feel pain, fairly severe in some areas, So i have to have it taken out which poses more risks,

I thought for all this time i had other problems not concerned with inguinal mesh placemement, as time as gone on my pain seems be getting worse, On my research with pain getting worse i found out its mesh inplant rejection, As you can imagine , especially for a man its a delicate area, I have opted to get the mesh removed from by the Nhs as i cant afford private surgery ,I fear for more auto immune problems , considering i have 2 problems which one being psoriatic arthritis is under control, reports say possible severe dry eye syndrome which i have had and possible rhumatiod arthritis to add to the mix, scary for me yes, the risks of further damage is high with a sensitive procedure to remove this mesh but future concequences are high too especially with already having auto immune disorders, , May take sometime get the operation done, outcome , who knows what may happen? but , i have to get this out Thank you :)

Wow John thats a hell of a lot of issues but hang on in there. I had hernia also two and a half years ago and I have psioriatic arthritis but the mesh has been fine. Hopefully it will stay fine. I also have oeteopenia in my right hip which I just found out today but Dr said just keep excercising walking etc and no meds as far as the hip is concerned. Good luck with your outcome.

Hello Alexandros , did you have key hole or open surgery, i had key hole, Glad all is well with it , some people are okay some are not with it , More damage could be caused taking it out with nerves etc, i been unlucky with it , Sounds like you got many issues also, Luckily i havnt had problem with arthritis for many years with diet, though i know its there .lifestyle changes i did, though i think all the weight i lost made me too thin and i made my inguinal area thinner ? maybe what caused the hurnia, Its a risk i have to take, hopefully i dont get worse at all after is a delicate operation,could mess up more nerves but could be entrapment? Luckily my wife is very supportive as i had this since we got together , just got worse in time, I thought i had a urine infection 9 months ago, no doc said anything else wrong or mention the hurnia op, i took antibiotics for 4 months, made me ill and caused psoriasis get worse , took all sorts of natural stuff, testicle pain is the worst, its a normal way of living now with pain , but i dont know if operation will relieve it or i end up losing it, good job i got another one lol, its been since the beginning with pain but susbsided and caused more pain in 9 months ago until now more continuing ,why i came to the conclusion its the surgery after my research on the net , typical mesh rejection,Good luck to you too Thank you :)

Hi John, my hernia was open surgery and a pretty big open. It was like a V operation down there. In and out the same day. The meds I take for PA which is 4 pills on a Saturday is all I take and never had a problem but I do get my blood checked every 5 months and so far its been spot on. The oestopenia is no problem because I excercise a lot and Dr said its the best medicine. I certainly hope you find some comfort from any decission you make to improve at least the pain. Diet is an excellent way to keep artritis under control but even though Im at my correct weight I love food in moderation and eat mostly everything except red meat which Im just not fond of. Stay positive and happy.

I see , seems to me that open is better as my friends son had his done and not had problems, he had his done 5 years ago,Though my syptoms according to research show that its mesh rejection as i have all those symptoms, some are not bad but just that particular one place that can be so painful though used to pain lol, yes it make a huge differnce to my joints with eating well but since i had this problem i been a bit like dont care but eat healthy stuff a lot anyway, Yes red meat is hard to digest, not good at all though i have it now and again. mainly fish and chicken i eat , no dairy at all unless i want a treat ,Good your dealing with your issues and you are doing well Alexandros :). Thank you , i hope it all comes out okay too. Thank you i am okay, thanks :)

Thank you Rita ,I try stay positive thank you , Pain is not good and no medication will sort it as it could be damage i dont know ?, Doc said because i got problems they the surgeon could remove it?, just want my normal life back, The surgeon who did it did not say that there could will be pain problems after surgery after 3 months and possible ruin me , i had no pain before sugery , i want this mesh out of me after all my research after experiencing pain for so long, its scary true, Theres risks of worst pain etc , why not many remove it , Thank you Rita :)
