What you are describing is actually a fairly common complication after hernia surgery.

This is because scar tissue can form in the area and irritate the nerve in the area -- causing constant pain after a hernia repair.

This website explains it well (but be forewarned, that this is a website for a surgeon -- and is not a recommendation for that particular surgeon. The information presented there is good in explaining this condition, however):
