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 more
