I scheduled a visit for my granddaughter who is having issues with a pain in her stomach, near and around her scar from an operation when she was 1 month old. (12 years ago). Sometimes that pain is bad that she wants to cry, Dr. Rawson checked her said she doesn't have a hernia and that this doesn't warrant an image. I asked what about her pain and he said she will just have to deal with it. That was it. Horrible, it's time for him to retire! He didn't introduce himself or ask who I was (the grandma) and only said goodbye, have a nice day.

I had surgery 2004 and now I'm having issues with the area of the hernia repair. I feel as if it has relocated in the stomach. I was told the Hernia was little then out of surgery Dr. Rawson said it was bigger than he thought. I had a infection . Which I took care of at home. I wasn't told about the Mesh either ,I don't know why they put that foreign Mesh in your Stomach. I heard sometimes complications and death . I'm in more pain now than I was during surgery or hernia !!!
