Had open umbilical hernia repair with mesh yesterday afternoon. Popping feeling; could this be tacks from mesh separating?

Early hernia question
Thanks for your inquiry, please call your surgeon to discuss, it is very early and he/she will know ho to answer your question best.
The noise that you heard is unlikely due to the CO2 used and could be due to a variety of things, including suture or mesh tearing through. It may be neither. Have your surgeon examine you to see.
