Hi everyone, First of all I am so grateful for this community! But I have profound doubts that my symptoms are TMS related. Two years ago I had an umbilical hernia repair with mesh implant and since then developed severe symptoms (gas, bloating, belching, ibs, shortness of breath, stomach pain, head aches, eye burning, allergies...) no specialist can explain. They suppose the scar tissue and the lack of flexibility due to the mesh implant could irritate my vagus nerve, which could influene my parasympathetic nervous system. But a mesh removal would cause to much new tissue damage. You should know that I have a TMS personality and before surgery my belly has always been my weak point. I underwent all standard medical procedures with no outcome. Whats your thoughts on such surgery related issues which implants? Thank you so much for your help!
