Hi Bhargava,

At 22 yrs you should have strong muscles enough to contain the contents of the abdomen within it.

Since you already had surgery on the left side we need to check the reason for frequent pain and swelling in the inguinal region. At this moment it is essential to get an examination on the right side.

Is it that the muscle are weak to contain the herniation ?

Do you have some occupation or prolonged posture which increases intra abdominal pressure excessively to cause inguinal herniation.?

Do you have a condition which increase the abdominal pressure like cough, mass within in the abdomen?

Did the doctor put a mesh to strengthen the muscle during the previous surgery? If yes then it is clear that the abdominal muscles are weak.

The pain is being referred to the upper right buttock.

Get a complete evaluation by the doctor and provide all the details here.
