Dr. Gabriel Goren answered:

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,

Scars
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.

Why is there burning after hernia surgery?

See below

Nerve discomfort to the skin can temporarily result in a sharp or burning feeling around the surgical site. That discomfort resolves as the surgical site heals. See your surgeon to be sure that you are healing properly.

Dr. Gregg Nishi answered:

What is square shaped burning sensation post hernia surgery on skin post surgery?

Hernia pain

Pain
Where? What kind of hernia (you can have them all over your body)? Sometime pain like that can come from a stitch that is pinching or pulling on a cutaneous nerve. Sometimes it's just from the healing process. If not better in a few weeks, see your surgeon.

Dr. Michael sawyer answered:

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.

Dr. Emil Shakov answered:

Burning sensation in the incision area where right inguinal hernia surgery was done 9 months ago . I checked with the doc. He said nothing wrong. Help?

Could be nerves

Incision
Burning is usually a neuropathic pain. He is right to say nothing wrong but that doesn't help you with your symptoms. You may need to see a pain specialist to try and inject the incision and see if this helps.

I had Hernia surgery 2 weeks ago today and the left side of my scrotum and inner thigh is very painful to the touch. Hard to walk without severe pain?

Pain, especially the unexpected pain post operatively should be reported to the surgeon. This is how they monitor post op complications. Please call your surgeon today.
