In brief: Yes

Femoral hernis surgery is not significantly differnt from a regular inguinal henia surgery.
Tampons will not affect your recovery and should be fine to use during your periods.

In brief: Yes

Your use of tampons will only be limited by any pain that you may experience when placing them. But there should be no reason they would cause any problem with your recovery.
