You can feel the hernia mesh

Why do I still have burning and soreness nine weeks after mesh hernia surgery? Also it seems that I can feel the mesh, is this normal?

Your body could be rejecting the mesh. You should let it heal another two months. These problems are common and many times will resolve with time. If it persists or gets worse you might need the mesh removed. Keep in mind that mesh does not belong in your body.
