I had a Bilateral Inguinal Sports Hernia Repair & also Release in the Adductor Muscles. It has been 3months now. I am a professional Soccer player playing Football in Italy. I am 17 years old. Everything was going fine after my operation, it has now been 3months post op. But this last week, i have been feeling sharp shooting pain going down my quad muscle, and just above my knee cap, my left ball is also hurting. All times of the day they are hurting, it is not a throbbing pain, it feels more nerve related and is really restricted me from sprinting. When i masturbate, i haven\'t had the same feeling as before the operation. My left ball always hurting, and im starting to worry. Please any advice ??? My doctors are saying this is normal blah blah...
It is likely that you are experiencing the pain due to irritation of the nerves within the inguinal canal.
This issue can occur after surgical procedures including Inguinal hernia repair, and is very benign and subsides on its own in due time.
In case the pain is very severe and affects your daily activities, then consultation with a doctor to rule out Surgery related - nerve entrapment issues. In such cases , if other treatment options fail, a nerve release procedure may be recommended.
