How old are you?: Age is a major factor in determining what caused this pain. The problem could vary from constipation to diverticulosis, a condition that could lead to complications if you aren't on a proper diet. If the pain persist or become worse, I advise you to see your local doctor. Make sure you drink plenty of water and fluids. Add more fiber to your diet. Eat some fruits or vegetables and try excerising

I have sharp burning/stabbing pain in lower left abdomen, radiating down my leg and foot is numb. Do I need to go to a hospital? (Have previously had pancreatitis, in 2010)

No: Sounds more like nerve pain. Your pancreas is in your upper abdomen. If your pain changes or if you have other symptoms; such as vomiting, fever, swelling in your groin or blood in your stool you should be seen at the hospital. Make an appointment to see your MD. All the best and I hope you feel better.

Some numbness common: It depends on what type of hernia repair you had done. It's not uncommon to have numbness around the incisions after surgery. If you had a laparoscopic hernia repair, that should be minimal. Open hernia repairs are associated with some incidence of numbness on the inside of the thigh and scrotum. Sometimes it gets better over time.

Colonic movement: My best guess would be that it is your descending colon either digesting food or in spasm. Sometimes these symptoms can occur with Irritable Bowel Syndrome.It could also be gas moving around in there as well. You could try a gas medication like simethicone which you can purchase over the counter to see if this alleviates the symptoms at all. If not and it is bothersome, see your doc.
