Unlike sutures, which have relatively few and minor possible complications, hernia mesh frequently causes life-threatening complications. Hernia mesh can erode into the bowel, requiring multiple additional surgeries, weeks of hospitalization, partial bowel removal, colostomies, and more. The mesh failure frequently causes patients to experience a systemic infection. We recently observed high rates of dental infections associated with mesh failure. Many victims report all of their teeth suddenly rotting out. Even if there is a slightly lower rate of hernia recurrence when mesh is used, it doesn’t justify the risk of life-threatening complications.
Unlike varicocele surgery, embolization requires no incision, stitches, or general anesthesia. Further, embolization patients almost never require overnight admission to the hospital. In addition, several studies have shown that embolization is just as effective as surgery. Studies have also shown that embolization patients return to full activities in a day or two, but varicocele surgery patients may need to avoid strenuous activity for several days or even weeks. Some complications of varicocele surgery, such as hydrocele (fluid around that testicle) and infection are virtually unheard of after embolization.
hi, my inguinal hernia is reduced last week. it was in the right side and I experienced sharp and burning pain in the left ball due to infection. the infection is gone now after medication. but I experienced low sperm count, shrinkage in the left ball. the temperature here in my town is 40+ degree Celsius. therefore, I have been cooling my balls for last two days by placing a wet piece of cloth in my underwear. the problem is I experience pain in both balls during and after cooling. my left ball hangs more than the right. is there any harmful effect of cooling. I use wet cloth for 6 to 8 hours in 24 hours. thanks
