I had inguinal hernia surgery in 2010, feel pain at surgical side when ejaculate.A doc said that he has to check it laparoscopically will it be useful?

In brief: Complex

This is a more complex situation than simply looking around with a laparoscope.
I would start with a urology consult, then may need to get pain mapping done, especially if there is pain other that after ejaculation. Hope this helps.

In brief: Maybe

Chronic groin pain occurs 1-2% of the time after hernia repair.
What you describe is occasionally used to evaluate this and it could have something to do with a recurrence or screen problem (if that was used). This is a difficult problem and you will have a hard time finding someone dedicated to resolving it. Be somewhat reluctant to have the groin re-operated but laparoscopy is safe.

In brief: Inguinodynia or

Pain after hernia surgery occurs in ~6% of patients regardless of repair method or presence/absence of mesh.
Evaluation ; exam by experienced experts(surgeon or hernia specialist) imaging studies (eg ct. Scan ) ; conservative treatment is appropriate before surgical intervention is indicated. Exploratory surgery should be done only by those experienced in properly managing all possible findings.
