Dr Jacob – its been almost exactly one year since you repaired my hernia, at the Mid-town Surgery Center. You had said that at the one year point, a check up was recommended, but that I would have forgotten you by then.
Well, the repair is indeed perfect – thanks for doing such a good job. Such a good job that I do remember you, but won’t be coming in for the check-up. At this point it’s totally un-noticeable and free of any sensation etc. Thanks you.
At the 9 month point I went sailing for a week – fairly strenuous activity. I did get some actual aching at that time that would last several days. I told myself that the mesh was partially dissolving and that I was probably tearing some scar tissue. Within a week it was back to un-noticeable. The “ache” didn’t even warrant an aspirin.
Thanks again and best wishes.
