How did the incisional hernia repair go?
I found this thread on my topic, so will continue it. I have a large incisional hernia from my ALIF incision, described by my surgeon as "the entire length of the incision plus". I will hopefully have a repair in March.
Can someone tell me how the repair went? I am a little nervous.
