In brief: Post Hernia Pain ,

There are many causes of chronic pain in the area of prior inguinal hernia repair.
The risk has been reported about 6% regardless of the method of repair ; whether or not mesh is used. Irritation of nerves in this area, inflammation of scar tissue ; adjacent structures, ; even recurrence of the hernia are all possible causes. Complete exam/eval by an experienced hernia surgeon is needed in cases.

In brief: Hard to say.

There are several issues which could be the cause of this.
When a hernia done you tend to form scar, with or without a mesh. It could be that your vas deferens or the nerves in your groin are entrapped in scar which could cause pain. As far as feeling weakness i'm not sure what that means. I suggest you see your doctor or your surgeon for another opinion.
