Looking for Help
RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &

I have to get this mesh out: I had the mesh repair with Dr. Cattey about 4 years ago and then the open repair with Dr. Meyers 2 years ago. Dr. Meyers did not remove the mesh as it was not an issue at the time. However, now the mesh is all stiff, tight, pinching, and really bothering me. And I'd venture to say that the mesh is also causing other muscle imbalances in the area because of its strength and tightness.

My question is...HAS ANYONE HAD THE SPORTS HERNIA MESH REMOVED WITHOUT GOING TO GERMANY? AND CAN YOU RECOMMEND A SURGEON? I am hoping that if I get the mesh out the Meyers repair will be sufficient, but I welcome any input on that also.

Thanks so much for your help!
