Sorry for the delay. I log off over night
Abdominal and inguinal hernias are different.
Since it is inguinal, this is most likely to be related to the healing process of your surgery. Other possibilities to be considered include infection and nerve damage/irritation from the surgery (not unusual). I would recommend that you have it check soon by your surgeon. He would be the best to make a judgement, knowing the details of your surgery. I would not recommend using any local "remedies" before having it checked. You may still use the pain medications prescribed to you
