Brief Answer: Get aultrasound and x ray of the spine. Detailed Answer: Hi, The sudden onset of pain can herald the onset of a hernia if the pain arises from the scarred area. If the pain is not from the scarred area then you need not worry at all. Another test to see for a hernia is too stand in front of the mirror and cough. Observe whether there is a ballooning or development of a swelling in the region of the scar. Backache has nothing to do with scar. It is a totally unrelated pathology linked to the spine. To be on the safer side I would suggest that you get a ultrasound of the abdomen done.For the backache get a x ray of the relevant portion of the spine done to look for degenerative changes. I hope this answers your doubt. Regards.
