Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Although less likely, hernia can recur sometimes.

It can get stuck causing serious complication sometimes like bowel obstruction.

More likely possibility can be scar tissue formation at the site resulting in local nerve irritation and hence the symptoms.

CT scan should be ordered to find out more information.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
