In June this year I had an inguinal Hernia Operation. not keyhole as the Hernia was very small.
I was ok for 3 months and last week I started getting a very painful stabbing pain directly above the scar. Also I am frequently getting alot of wind and a high tempreture, could this be a problem with my hernia operation.
Unfortunately, chronic pain is rather common after inguinal hernia surgery (3 to 5 percent of patients will experience chronic pain following hernia surgery). The initial treatment of pain following hernia surgery includes the avoidance of heavy lifting, ice or/and heat application, and the use of anti-inflammatory medications.
I doubt that passing a lot of gas is related to your hernia repair.
As for your high temperature, unless you have an active infection in the area of your hernia surgery, it is also unlikely that your hernia surgery is the cause of this problem.
