Same side.?.?: Is your hernia done open or laparoscopic.? Is the swelling on the same side you had your groin hernia repair.? Did the surgeon use a screen? Did you had a femoral hernia.? There a slim possibility that you have a pressure against your vein from the repair.,possible vein injury!!! Ask for venogram, ultrasound is not enough to rule out vein injury. Check with your surgeon, ask for vascular consult.
