I Don't Know which Mesh was used?
One of the most commonly asked questions ... this can be investigated by contacting your doctor, the surgeon, or the hospital in which the surgical repair was conducted. Some institutions or practitioners prefer that a formal request be made, in which case there may be certain protocol or channels that need to be followed.

What are common hernia mesh complications?
Again this may vary, however an overriding commonality is that of the erosion of the mesh, and infections related to the mesh itself from within the body. This often times requires revision surgery.
Studies have shown that complications of surgical or hernia mesh operations do tend to increase, in terms of likelihood over time. The Journal of the American Medical Association published a study here: http://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/fullarticle/2565771, detailing their findings in research on mesh and non-mesh hernia studies.
