Event Description
Reporter stated that a laparoscopic surgery was performed and a hernia mesh was placed to repair an already existing hernia. Subsequently, the mesh detached / fell causing severe abdominal pain, difficulties urinating, numbness, and a return of the hernia. Reporter visited his dr who indicated that a reconstructive emergency surgery will be necessary to explant the mesh. The dr extracted some of the mesh fragments and was unable to extract the rest due to adhesion to the walls of his bowels and other vital organ. Reporter stated that after the surgery, he has scarring, urinary / sexual concerns, weight gain, ambulation difficulties, liver problems, inability to exercise and abdominal pain which still persists.
