Customer Question
I had a hernia...

I had a hernia surgery done years ago, the mesh has pulled away and rolled down. It feels like part of my intestine has pushed thru where the mesh was at.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

No doctor yet. I just got blue cross blue shield from Tennessee. Something Level S. I get sharp pains like before I had the surgery if I bend over or eat too much

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

I am in a semi in west Georgina. Sorry bad spelling. I am having problems pooping if I try to force it out. I get a lot of pain

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

That's the only surgery I had...

I am planning on finishing my next run. Take off next weekend and see about the surgery .. Would I be able to go to the ER at williamson medical center in Franklin Tennessee to get treated or do I need to see a doctor and wait till they can do the surgery...

Doctor: Ross, Doctor replied 2 months ago

you need to drink plenty of water if the mesh rolled back you have a recurrence which will require removal and repair with repeat laparoscopic or open with a mesh plug. redos always take longer to heal from and increase risks.. you can wait but always change of bowel getting stuck in there , its not an emergency if you dontg have constant pain. You need to be taking a stool softner to prevent constipation, they will hake you wait unless ity is incarcerated which means you are in severe pain and the hernia cannot be reducedl

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
