Event Description
The reporter stated that she has had abdominal pain ever since the mesh was put in, but in (b)(6) of this year she had a terrible cold, and her right side pain got worse and worse. She went to (b)(6) and they could not do anything and sent her to (b)(6). At (b)(6) they said the mesh was floating around. They gave her antibiotics and put a drain in. She was in the hospital for 8 days. Four to six weeks later, she had a fever and her midriff on the right side was hard as a rock. They put in another drain and said she has 2 spots with an abscess and infection that would not clear up. That is when she was taken for a 7 hour surgery and the mesh was removed and the hernia corrected again. The pain is better but still having cramps when standing up or making certain movements and energy level is down. No get up and go.
