I have been reading that the mesh that is used can disintegrate in your body and cause a lot of pain. I've read so many horror stories and now I am afraid to go ahead with the surgery. Chuck1957, are you there. I know you have helped me in the past. I am not too familiar with the computer but was wondering if you could send me a quick response as to what you think I should do. Thank you so much and I hope that you get this, like I said I am not too computer literate so don't know my way around very well. OK, I will wait and see if I hear from you. Thank you!
