I was in such a hoo hah before gallbladder op (long story but basically lovely DH has inoperable cancer and I was only focussed on coming out of anaesthetic to be ok for our DC) that I didn't mention my previous umbilical hernia op from a number of years ago (repaired with mesh.)

Only just remembered - will they have seen the mesh when they opened up belly button and realised or will they have inevitably cut through the original repair.

Feel ridiculous now for not mentioning it.

Bump just in case anyone has any insight. Thanks
