in Stockton, CA |
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 !!!
