Mysticdoc :

Hello,

Mysticdoc :

Thanks for your question.

Mysticdoc :

There is a possibility of the infection from the mesh if it was contaminated during surgery.

Mysticdoc :

However, your symptoms started 3 months later raising the possibility of unrelated bacterial infection.

Mysticdoc :

There is another possibility of intestinal ischemia or reduced blood circulation to the intestine.

Mysticdoc :

This can predispose you to the bacterial infection.

Mysticdoc :

This is possible if there was partial bowel obstruction from the umbilical hernia ( if strangulated).
