Hernia Mesh Surgeons Lie to Their Patients That Return With Unbearable Pain

The last person that will admit that the medical device they implanted failed is a hernia mesh surgeon

Wednesday, December 11, 2019 - Manufacturers of malfunctioning medical devices have a lot to worry about today in the age of social media. Controversial medical implants such as leaking artificial silicone breast implants failed hip replacements, and malfunctioning surgical mesh devices are among thousands of devices where sufferers have started social media support groups on FaceBook and other sites so that sufferers can share their experiences. Hernia repair mesh is now thought to be an epidemic of failure that is in its earliest stage as some experts estimate that as many as 33% of the over 1 million annual hernia repair using surgical mesh could fail every year creating a revision surgery specialty all of its own for doctors. England anticipates around 150,000 patients per year are experiencing pain and hernia repair mesh failures that are serious enough to require removal surgery. Several surgeries are often necessary because it may be difficult to find and remove all of the pieces of the disintegrated plastic surgical mesh. Australia is the latest country to consider creating an official government investigation over the high number of hernia mesh failures Australians are experiencing.

ABC.net Australia reports the stories of several people that have had catastrophic outcomes from hernia mesh after what was once thought to be routine hernia repair surgery. Australia's Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS) report that over 5% of the country's 100,000 or so routine hernia surgeries fail and require a second, third or fourth revision surgery according to ABC.net.au.

One Aussie had a "hernia mesh blowout" as he described it and the result was that the mesh device dislodged within him and traveled down obstructing blood flow to his genitals causing them to turn black and causing him excruciating pain. The patient described his hernia mesh catastrophe by telling reporters: "It was like I'd been punched in the genitals. They were just black and just swollen beyond recognition." Not exactly the outcome a hernia repair mesh doctor would tell a prospective patient. Rather than admit the problem his surgeon reassured him that nothing was wrong and that his suffering must be caused by something unrelated to the hernia repair mesh. Hernia mesh surgeons normally haven't a clue as to how to go about locating and removing a failed hernia mesh and fear the legal consequences of admitting something is wrong. The patient's hernia repair doctor eventually grew tired of having to deal with the patient every week and finally told the patient to get lost. "Finally, after about six months the surgeon told me that there was nothing wrong with me and then he said 'I've done my job' and to go away," he told ABC news. This is just one of many reports of how hernia repair surgeons are incapable and unwilling to help when hernia mesh repair devices fail.
