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.
