What sort of repair. I only know that my sister had a hernia repair with mesh and after a while the mesh got infected and has had to be cut out. go to another doctor at the practice maybe see what they think


hi worried fiance may be worth looking into painful bladder syndrome , I've still not had a diagnosis but was told by the dr that the bowel bladder & womb in woman are formed at the same stage of fetal development & share a nervous system which makes it hard to identify where the pain is coming from, hope this is of some help
