Hello,
I am a 34 year old man and had an inguinal hernia last August. The recovery from the surgery was supposed to take about 6 weeks and it was said that I would be pretty much back to normal. Today I am still numb in that area. It is very tender to the touch (much like a deep bruise). I also feel dull achey pain where the hernia occured. I've had a CT scan and they said they saw what appeard to be a lesion behind the mesh. They sent me to have an ultra sound today and the technician said she didn't really see anything. They are reffering it to the original surgeon and my GP. HELP!!! Not sure what this could be but I'm at my wits end feeling like this. Thanks in advance for any advice and knowledge that you could pass my way.

Geoff,

Do you mind sharing the name of the surgeon who is going to cut the nerve? Thanks.

Bilateral open inguinal hernia surgery with mesh repair Jan 2010. Severe problems with groin/testicular pain and pain shooting down leg. Nerve blocks no help. Neurontin no help. Testicular ultrasound and urologist consult showed nothing. Dec. 2010 had ilioinginal nerves resected and scar tissue cleaned out. Still having pain issues and have limited ability to exercise. Surgeon said mesh was in place and doing fine, and there were no other hernias. Just be forewarned, you may still have problems after a 2nd surgery. The cause of Post Herniorraphy Pain Syndrome is not always clear. Good Luck.
