In brief: From what

Scar tissue from inguinal hernia surgery or something else? Are you having pain from the surgery after a normal healing period? If you are then see your surgeon for eval.
You prob need to see your surgeon again to see if there is nerve impingement or similar prob that cause persistent pain.

In brief: Indication 4 surgery

It is not so much the time between surgical procedures, as it is the indication to warrant the risk of a surgical procedure.
If you are still in the recovery period from inguinal hernia repair, then issues related to scarring would be expected and expected to improve with time. Best to stay in touch with your surgery team. Be well.
