Event Description
I had bard mesh placed in a bilateral inguinal hernia repair. The mesh came in 6x6 squares and they were, according to the surgical report, cut down to 3. 5 x 3. 5 and a 3. 5 strip on the other side. A month or so after, i began to have intestinal trouble. After 11 years, it hasn't gotten better only worse, blood in my urine, hernia came back 1 year later. Intestinal infections, prostate infections, drs can't find the cause, partial intestinal blockage. Ct shows mesh failure. X ray shows surgical tacks protruding through the pelvic wall. Feel run down and bloated so much that i can only lay down to sleep for 4 to 5 hours before the bloating and pain wakes me up.
