Possible hernia: Any surgery involving opening of the abdominal wall can lead to the formation of what is known as "incisional hernias". Although surgery was performed to correct an inguinal hernia, that hernia may have either recurred or an incisional hernia may have formed. Recommend seeing a doctor so a physical examination can be performed.

May have recurred: It sounds like the inguinal hernia you had reaired 4 years ago may have recurred.Go see the doctor to get it checked.Best wishes

Unlikely: If it hurts, see him. The idea is to let the material and stitches heal well before stressing them.
