Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

If no swelling, then problem is likely due to the nerve compression by the mesh.

The nerve related pain will feel like burning.

Challenging to prove.

However should be discussed with your surgeon first.

Then you will need to see a pain specialist.

Gabapentin can be tried orally to control the symptoms.

This is Dr. David

if you are taking only 300mg of gabapentin, you might need to have your dose increased. some patients need 2700-3600mg of gabapentin to help nerve pain.

you should ask for a pelvic MRI scan to check for pinched nerves

have you had an MRI scan of your pelvis yet?

If gabapentin is not working, then you will likely need nerve blocking injection.

This is provided the mesh cannot be removed by the surgeon.

In mny cases removal of mesh helps.
