Not very pleasant for you, Amanda. But at least with the phone charger, every cloud has a silver lining! Hope you're home soon!

A similar complication with the mesh happened to a friend of my mum's, also after a hernia op. Hope they sort you out soon.

My sinuses are acting up again and I'm a bit scared that the polyps may have grown back and I'd have to have that surgery I had almost over a year ago again! I'm hoping it's just a infection, I have a doc apt Weds. If I do have to have surgery it'd have to wait til Harm is after school.

Eek Amanda, that sucks! How'd the hernia happen, can't remember if you've mentioned it.

Although the medical fraternity play it down, there have been quite a few cases of post-surgery complications following the insertion of mesh, and its use, although standard for hernia ops, has become rather controversial. We had a particularly nasty one in the news here the other day ( though Amanda might prefer not to read about it :)
