Really sorry to know that you have been suffering so much.
I would have felt the same way if I were you.
The main thing here is that you need a close follow up with your doctor and that is the only way that you can finally get this treated.
Sometimes complications like these happen after hernia surgeries and they are pretty difficult to manage at times, unfortunately but with persistence and determination you can fight it off and things will eventually start to improve.
So the main thing is that you need close follow-up with your doctor to frequently assess your problems. I understand that its frustrating but that is the only best course of action. If you are not satisfied with your current surgeon you may want to have a second opinion on this from a different surgeon.
Let me know if you have any further questions.
Please do not rate me my services only if you are satisfied.
Kindest Regards
