Spot on the abdomen and post surgical pain

User Profile
I had double inguinal lap surgery 4 months back. Everything is ok except for one spot on the rite hand side of my lower abdomen. It is still very very sore and tender especially when I place a finger on the spot and push in, I then experience a very strong burning and throbbing sensation. I know that titanium staples were used to secure the prolene mesh and I wondered if it could be the staples that are causing the problem.
Is there any solution to this problem without further surgery
