Hi,michelle had gortex dual mesh repair for an insisional hernia. it covers her lower abdomen.. from day one she has had intractible pain nausea infection .. many trips to multiple drs and emergency rooms.. dehydration and multiple diagnosis such as gastritis diverticulitis colitis ulcers inflamation of the intestines and on and on... it has been almost 3 years now she has had to drop out of school and cant work any more... she passes out from the pain.. and not once has she ever been told that all this could possible be caused by the gortex dual mesh inside her.. she was 25 years old at time of surgery.. i fear her life is destroyed.. dont know where to turn to help her.. she has constant low grade fever even with the antibiotics cannot enjoy a meal without throwing up ..phenergan cipro and zantac are her staples.. there is never any let up... no down time.. this is no way to live.. is it that no medical person understands? or is it fear that motivates them to do nothing? do they just plain dont care? i need to help my daugher cant watch her suffer any longer.. i cant find any specialists in "mesh" where do u go with such a person
I suggest that you go to Dr Goodyear at North Penn Hernia Institute. He answers ??? and is very good about getting back to you with responses. Just type in that name and you will get the website and the message board. Just address the ??? to him.
