Re: “Neuropathy, gastric bypass linked

Hello I'm a 38 year old woman who had gastric bypass in 2003, I had severe complications but recovered over time, so I thoughtin 2007 I underwent surgeries to fix a rather large hernia. Ibeleived it went successfully , but I was severly mistaken . In dec.2014 I was rushed to emergency surgery to repair a bowel obstruction because the mesh had adhered to my intestine I woke up a week later on a respirator and a tube in my stomach for decompression, they removed it in may 2015. Then in aug. 2015 I was rushed back to the hostpital with another small bowel obstruction and distended pancreas , they rerouted my bowel and pancreas, and said they fixed the problem, I was sent home a week later only for my insicion to become infected so we thought, they to out the staples and put a tube in my abdomen both were drained and I went home a week later still having to pack my incision , well I went for a follow up and found out my wound wasn't healing because the mesh from my hernia surgery was going bad, one again I was scheded for surgery they removed some of the mesh and put a wound vac on me to promote healing . when I came home I started doing research and found out the mesh had been recalled 2 months after they put it in me unfortunately it's so ingrained in my tissue it would kill me to have it all removed at once. So everytime I went for a follow up my surgeon had to take hemostats and sissors and pull mesh out of my insicion. My wound vac was removed 2 weeks ago but I still have to pack my open wound. But through all of this I have lost 47Lbs. since Oct.2015 and my legs feel tingly and so week I have a hard time walking up stairs and I wonder if it's not neuropathy getting worse because I have a hard time eating and holding it down. If anybody has answers or helpful insight I would love to hear it.
