Brief Answer: Need to be examined to make a diagnosis. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you for using Healthcare Magic. Your symptoms you describe are fairly non-specific. The results of hernia repairs are usually very good. However, they do sometimes return. It would be difficult to make a judgement based on this description. Therefore, I suggest you see your doctor who will be able to examine you and make a more informed diagnosis of the problem. I hope this is of help to you. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Regards, Dr K A Pottinger, MBChB FRCA

Brief Answer: Small possibility that this may be a recurrence. Detailed Answer: Hi, Signs of a return of your hernia would be onset of your original symptoms.Recurrence occurs in about 1-5% of hernias. If you only feel these symptoms when you press on the area and you are fine otherwise, I would suggest you do not need to worry. The tissues of your groin will be different from the other side which has not been operated on. However, as I mentioned, physical examination by your doctor will be far more informative.
