After my husband had surgery he had a hernia mesh implant and since then he has had a soma surgery for ( diverticulitis ) and so on now he has peripheral t-cell non-hopskin lymphoma .are there any connection between the two?
I really doubt it. Lymphomas are very common cancers. I personally know 4 people who have had it and only one died; she decided to put her head in the sand and waited for 3 years from diagnosis to treatment. I saw her once in the cancer clinic where she was pretty nasty to me and from the look of her I doubt she lasted another 8 weeks.
This exact thing happened with my dad. I have since found out about the mesh recalls and on NCBI database found an article showing that long term infection caused by the recalled mesh has caused skin cancer in some patients. If it can cause 1 cancer, why not the other? I know this was written a while ago but I just want to say that I hope all is well with your husband and that all stays well.
