I used to have extreme pain in the left lower abdomen area (groin area), which was the result of a hernia. I had surgery in July and that took all the pain away. Unfortunately, about two weeks ago, the same exact pain came back. For the past few days, Ive had extreme sharp pain in the same area. I went to the surgeon who fixed my hernia, and she proclaimed that "there is no way the pain is from the hernia". However, because it took her MONTHS to figure out I had hernia, and for legal reasons, I think she is lying. Can anyone tell me what the possibility of a hernia reoccurring so soon is? Any advice about what I should do?
