Hi!
A pain very similar to your pain following hernia repair can be due to recurrence of hernia, adherence of the bowel to the edge of the mesh, adherence of the bowel to the tacks or sutures, or surgical site adhesion. All these can be treated by cutting the adhesions by laproscopy. The other possibilities are nerve entrapment in between muscles or due to the tracks of muscles changing direction post surgery. It can also be a localized infection of the surgery site. Gas in the bowel is another possibility. Please consult your surgeon immediately. Take care!
