Is it normal to still be feeling pain above n below the incision 1 year after open inguinal hernia syrgery. Burning pain right above the incision?

39 yr fem. Diagnosed with inguinal hernia today. Very bothersome. Burning in vag area and pain going from hernia to thigh. Should i wait or repair?

Repair: A hernia such as yours results from a defect in the abdominal wall. Because of this defect or tear, "things" inside your abdomen (like intestines) will protrude through the defect. The risk is that, sooner or later, an organ , such as your intestine, will get stuck in this hernia.... Your situation has now become a surgical emergency. Inguinal hernias should be fixed. Yours, soon. ...Read more

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 ?

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
