There are a variety or several types of hernias, and many are repaired differently. A hernia is a weakness in the abdominal wall (such as inguinal, umbilical, incisional) or diaphragm (hiatal hernia). Surgery to repair the hernia can involve use of sutures, and possible use of mesh. Open or laparoscopic surgery can be a means to repair hernias, with laparoscopic ...Read more
Had hernia repair surgery last december right at the incision and above it jus have this burning pain got a nerve block yesterday but it got worst wa?
Strange,: As my belief was that maybe the pain was due to a peripheral nerve possibly caught in scar tissue. If the injection was in proper place but did not help i would go back to the surgeon -if he was not "the injector:"- let him/her examine you. First one have to eliminate that the complaint id from the surgery before looking for other possibilities. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
I have been experiencing a burning or stabbing pain 3 weeks after inguinal hernia surgery. it comes and goes a few times a day. is this normal?
Not really: Call your doctor, surgeon to let her/him know of this. You want to make sure the mesh is in place and not out of place stabbing you, or pushing on something that it shouldn't be. You have 90 days of post op care that's prepaid with your surgery. So, don't delay. Your surgeon needs to know this information. Good luck! ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
I had open inguinal hernia surgery on my left side without mesh four weeks ago.. I have been having burning & stabbing pain in groin with a dull ache ?
Trajectory of pain?: 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. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

Two hernia surgery lst year in apr for repair and dec for mesh removal. I now have numb tingling, burning outer thigh and hurts to touch plus discolor?
Nerve Pain: After the initial hernia repair there is always a risk of nerve injury. When someone has gone through two inguinal surgeries there is a very high likelihood of injury to the ilioinguinal and genitofemoral nerve. This can lead to numbness and tingling of the inner thigh and medial groin area. There is also a risk of abscess or fluid collection which can lead to the discoloration.

I had inguinal hernia surgery 6 months ago and about a week ago started feeling aches and burning like i did prior to open mesh surgery. Normal?
Not typically normal: These may be symptoms of recurrent hernia. Sometimes they can also be associated with scar formation causing entrapment of the ilioinguinal or iliohypogastric nerve. Either way, it would be best to bring this to the attention of the surgeon who repaired your hernia and go to him or her for an evaluation. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
I had right inguinal hernia surgery in 2010, burning, numbness and feeling of my cord being pulled by mesh, does mesh need to be removed?
Possibly.: Please revisit the surgeon who performed the surgery, if possible, for further recommendations, especially since your surgery was 4 years ago. If these are new symptoms, it may have moved or post-op adhesions may be bothering you. It is unusual for burning and numbness of the skin to occur 4 years after surgery. There may be a new process going on. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
