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?

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.
