What Can Cause Poking In Stomach Post Hernia Incision ?

I am 4months post Incisional hernia(2 hernia's) repair and have been experiencing a poking and catching feeling in my stomach in repair. I had a colostomy last year for about 12wks due to a bowel rupture and then after the 12wks a reversal. Can the mesh be doing this or could this catching feeling be the hernia poppin through?

Hello,

It is due to irritation caused by mesh.

If symptoms persist better to consult a general surgeon and plan for an ultrasound scan.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
