1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes possible

Yes some times sliding inguinal hernia, pulls posterior abdominal contents (colon) causing back pains.
Other causes of back pain should be considered first before considering hernia as a problem.

In brief: Yes

Especially large ventral hernias that occur after a previous abdominal operation.
Repair of these types of hernia requires a surgeon with experience in abdominal wall reconstruction.
