These types of "tension" repairs are often associated with pain for 4-6 weeks. On rare occasions, chronic pain of varying levels can develop. If you think something is wrong, see your surgeon for a follow up exam. If you're not satisfied, consider a second opinion from a surgeon interested in hernia disease - you can find one on the Americas Hernia Society website. Hope this helps!

Follow up with your surgeon for further care. If you are still unwell you need to be reviewed. All the best.

If your pain is gradually getting better, I wouldn't worry about it yet. It should continue to improve. If it is worsening, see your surgeon. If it is not changed compared to prior to your operation, it might be due to something else. Your surgeon can help direct you the right direction.
