Thanks for your question.
There is a possibility of the infection from the mesh if it was contaminated during surgery.
However, your symptoms started 3 months later raising the possibility of unrelated bacterial infection.

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