Event Description
I had umbilical. Hernia repair at (b)(6) hospital, (b)(6) by dr. (b)(6) on (b)(6) 2016. The hernia was repaired with a atrium mesh, according to hospital records. After the repair, i was diagnosed with prostate cancer in (b)(6) 2016. I scheduled a radical prostatectomy for (b)(6) 2016 at (b)(6) hospital, (b)(6). The surgeon was dr. (b)(6). The procedure was robotic. According to dr. (b)(6) after the surgery, he told my wife that he almost was not able to conduct the surgery because my small intestine was attached to the atrium mesh. He did finally detach the two, and completed the surgery. Ten days after the surgery, i had a follow up appointment with dr. (b)(6). At the follow up, i was experiencing severe pain in my abdomen. Dr. (b)(6) admitted me to (b)(6) hospital, and brought a gastroenterologist onboard to assist with my treatment. My gut was inflamed, therefore it was restricted at the site that the small intestine and the atrium mesh was connected. I stayed in the hospital 4 days waiting on my gut to calm down, which it did. I have since had another painful episode that did not require a hospital stay, only because i used some learning from the prior episode to "get some relief". The site is still tender to touch, and it feels like a mass in over my navel. I do not know what to do about this, if anything. I also had my gallbladder removed in (b)(6) 2017 at (b)(6) medical center. The surgeon was dr. (b)(6). He checked around the umbilical area, and said that he found on small area adhesion, and repaired it.
