Left side lower back pain towards my butt that radiates up to the middle of my back and to my groin. Small bulge above hip that doesn't hurt or hard.

Common: Pelvic area pain can radiate up or down, and commonly to the groin. Bulging above the hip is classic for a twist in the pelvis. See a chiropractic doctor or a osteopathic physician for treatment you will do well. Ask about xrays if scoliosis is seen.

What can cause horrible lower back pain that radiates into the buttocks?

What can cause horrible lower back pain that radiates into the buttocks?

Pinched back nerve: A nerve compression in the lower back would be the most common cause; this can be from a slipped disc in the lower back pinching a spinal nerve root, or from arthritis of the bones around those nerves. If this happened suddenly, it means a disc could have slipped at the time the pain started. Treatment is not bedrest (except for maybe a day) but gradually increasing movement along with medications.

Sounds like sciatica: This sounds like a typical case of a sciatica or pain radiating into the leg due to a nerve compression that can be due to a disc herniation usually but there can be other explanations. Generally this is true with pain that goes past the knee and can be confirmed on exam and by imaging with a ct scan or mri. Most get better without surgery.

Could lower back pain that radiates around hip to 4 1/2 month iguinal laproscopic hernia repair be olioiguinal nerve pain or reoccurrence?

Doubtful: While it is possible, it doesn't sound like that type of pain. Ilioinguinal nerve is also well away from the space where a laparoscopic inguinal hernia is. It could come in to play however if a tack was placed too deeply at the upper outer edge of the mesh. See your surgeon to find out if its bad enough. Recurrence would be more likely if there is a return of preop symptoms or a reducible bulge.

Yes, it's possible: It's possible, but there are many factors that can help determine that. Did you get an MRI? What is the pattern of your pain? Even if the nerve root is not being pinched, if it gets irritated, it can cause similar symptoms
