JQL to find issues I'm mentioned in but haven't commented since the last mention

I'm trying to find a way to make a JQL search that will list all the issues I'm mentioned in, that I haven't commented after the mention. Thus, once I've commented on an issue I'm mentioned in, it goes away unless I'm mentioned again.


It seems like I need to be able to get the date of a specific comment in order to compare it to the date of another comment, but I haven't figured out how to do that.  I've been looking at Script Runner functions and the commented("By Username after") type queries but they aren't quite powerfull enough.


Currently I'm using this: 

text ~ currentUser() AND issue not in watchedissues() AND (assignee != currentUser() OR assignee = EMPTY) AND status != Resolved ORDER BY updated DESC

However if I stop watching the issue it goes back into this filter


Thanks in advance for any assistance.

You may want to look into this plugin though it is only applicable to Service Instances: Comment Toolbox

Hope it helps.
