How long will it take for the second surgery to heal? (Photo)

This is the second surgery in the the exact same place. Is this common with mesh repair ?

Healing in general

Healing is a very complex process and can be influenced by a lot of factors such as nutrition, blood supply, use of certain medications, and the way the past-operative care is instituted.  In general, if you are having the same surgery and your health is the same as before, your healing should be about the same as before.

Good luck with your surgery.
