It will take a few weeks to fully recover from this type of surgery. Therefore, I would consider this is quite normal progress at this stage.
It is good to walk to aid post-operative recovery. Take paracetamol and ibuprofen for any pain and drink plenty of fluids. Wear supportive undergarments if you are feeling swollen.
Best regards.

thank you for your query.
post hernia op-Pain persisting beyond the first few days after groin hernia repair is seen in 10–15% patients.the pain generally subsides over the early months.

as for swelling-it is quite common to have a swelling in the scrotum. This swelling contains water, and may contain some blood if bleeding has occurred. This is a result of the peculiar anatomy of the region. The swelling resolves with time. if the symptoms dont subside after few days then its better to consult your surgeon.

thank you,
wishing you good health
