Detached surgical clip after femoral hernia repair

Had a CT today that shows a surgical clip located close to the cecum/appendix. I had a bilateral femoral hernia repair performed eight months ago.

The pain in area of the clip began about four months ago. Kinda mild, steadily worsened to the point of seeking medical attention. It's quite bad now.

Have to wait until Friday to see the general surgeon.

Has anyone else had this or similar? I guess I'll need another surgery.
Thank you.
