In brief: See a doctor

Most of the time, pain after inguinal hernia repair is because of stitches used during the operation.
See your surgeon or your primary medical doctor to get checked out. Often, a simple injection can help with the pain.

Have a check up by the surgeon.
Hernias can come back. If you have a patch they can get infected.
