You could be up for a second surgical procedure, to manage the damage of an improperly implanted hernia mesh.

You May Sustain Internal Injuries and Complications Based on the First Hernia Mesh Surgical Procedure
It is not unusual that your hernia mesh will give you issues, problems and concerns after it is implanted into your abdomen or surrounding areas. Many people experience issues and complications when the hernia mesh adheres to other organs, moves around or generally develops infections or other problems in internal areas of the body. It will be difficult to accept that your hernia is repaired properly at the time, but then over an amount of time the hernial mesh shifts, slips or moves over to stick, adhere or block other organs in your body. This can be traumatic for many people, not to mention the pain that can be associated with a hernia mesh that is defective and is prone to the development of complications after it is surgically implanted in a person’s body.
