I got fixed an inguinal hernia about one year ago. Right side, fixed with 2 meshes, one in the seminal conduct and the other one in the abs wall.
I was doing fine, until one week ago I lifted a pretty heavy bag. At the moment, I did not feel any kind of pain, however, next day, until now I have got pain, testicle pain, stomach ache, but not inflamation, or bults.
I am really worried about if I actually got a reincidence, or if just one of the stitches, from the mesh are unstitched, or sort of.
Maybe I got another fissure and the mesh is preventing my organs to dont pop put and that's why I dont have a bult?
You will have to be evaluated by your physician to assess for possible recurrence of your hernia. The symptoms that you describe could be due to either a recurrence of your hernia, or a strain of the tissues (including scar and sensory nerves) in the area of your hernia repair.
