Den,

I had the mesh removal repair myself. Dr. UM is extremely anti-mesh for the reasons you note. Mine was a complete mess and required the intervention of another surgeon to assist in the procedure. That came with a bilateral SH repair. 12 weeks later and I'm still not over it, although Dr. UM said 10 weeks would be an ambitious recovery. Even after all that, she said to return to normal activity asap, just avoid specific abdominal work in the first two weeks.

Dr. Brown in Montreal, after he did a bilateral for me, told me to take it really easy and not to even think of activity for at least two weeks, then roll into it slowly.

So on it goes.....
