My daughter, age 34 had lapasopic surgery for hernia repair using a titanium patch. Her bowel was being pinched, making the hernia life threatening. She also had a complete hysterectomy and gall blater surgery within 3 years after the hernia surgery. After 3 years, she still has a lot of abdominal discomfort including frequent diareaha. She has gained weight during the time since the hernia repair and we wonder if the weight gain has affected the titanium patch, causing the discomfort. Are there side effects associated with the titanium patch?
