In brief: Lot's of Options

I am sorry to hear about your pain.
Many different things may be responsible for the pain including normal post surgical healing, nerve injury, or even a recurrent hernia. It is critical to return to see your surgeon so that they can sort this out. Sometimes, a simple intervention can resolve this pain completely! good luck.

In brief: Pain after surgery

This is definitely not normal.
You should contact you surgeon and be seen very soon as to why you are having the pain. Is there a complication or an infection. Be persistent about getting answers and help. You should not have to suffer with chronic pain.
