Vertigo hernia operation after 2 intestinal surgeries in the past 12 months

No. The mesh will yours forever. There is no need to replace the mesh unless another hernia occurs. The weight loss in that case will actually help you with the ventral hernia repair. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Thank you for your question. You should not have a problem with your mesh just from weight loss. Although, your abdominal wall may be loose following a 100 lb weight loss.
Hello and thank your for your question. The answer will depend on the type of mesh used and the size of the hernia. Generally once a mesh is in place you will not need to have it modified as long as it is controlling your hernia.
