I am sorry you are having pain in an area of prior surgery and surgical mesh.

you should see your surgeon who did the surgery and get an exam of the area

and get an MRI scan of the area to look for scar tissue and pinched nerves which can cause pain.

you may need a revision surgery to remove the mesh to help decrease the pain.
