Hi and thanks for the query,
I am afraid this is not a rare finding in inguinal hernia repair
as you do know already. It might not be very useful getting the mesh removed at this stage. The pain is actually due an chronic o=inflammation and fibrosis
in the area. Treatment is generally symptomatic with drugs taken actively during periods of greatest intensity. These range from non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs, opiods, morphines depending on the case. IN very intense cases, injections of steroids
into affected areas have proven helpful. Wishing you good health.
Thanks and kind regards,
Bain LE, MD.
