Upper central abdominal discomfort, nausea, diagnosed with h.pylori, all tests normal, have mesh repaired hernia. Is the discomfort due to mesh?

I suffer from upper central abdominal discomfort and slight nausea . I am 46 yo female. i was diagnosed with helicobactor pylori and had the triple treatment, Referred to gastroenteroligist - all blood tests normal. Ultrasound fine and endoscopy showed no ulcers and all normal besides small hiatis hernia . I have mesh repaired hernia (2004) mesh spans right over over stomach . I have been taking omeprazole and esomeprazole but am still getting the symptoms. Could it be the mesh? Do you advise I go back to the gatroenteroligist or will these symptoms settle eventually. I ahve had this since november 2011

Hello, debrapatrick,
I am glad to hear that all your blood tests and ultrasound examination
Came back normal.I am not sure how long ago your hernia mesh was
Placed.If there was a problem with infection, you would be much sicker
with fever,swelling,redness and a high white cell count.Sometimes
scar tissue or adhesions can trap nerve endings and cause pain.Also
mid abdominal pain can indicate pancreas problems.Again, blood tests
for pancreas, such as enzymes Amylase and Lipase levels would be
elevated.H.pylori has been treated successfully, which is good.
I would recommend continueing once a day Omeprazole-20 mg.
for 2-4 weeks.
Wish you well.
