No safe hernia mesh



Is it safe to have mesh or is there an alternative?


No Hernia mesh is completely safe. There is a significant risk of severe chronic pain caused by your body rejecting the mesh. The alternative is to do an open non-mesh anatomical hernia repair or do nothing. Doing nothing is not a great option
