Hi,

As per your query, you had undergone Hernia surgery a month ago.
As you are 62 years,the Surgeon might have used Mesh made of Prolene in order to prevent recurrence. As the Prolene mesh is a foreign body and is fixed to the surrounding structures, it will take some time for the completion of healing process. Till then,there will be some discomfort. Nothing to worry.

Everything will subside soon. There is no time limit. Please do not strain the Surgery site. In the mean time you can take Muscle relaxant and B complex tablet with Anti oxidants.

Wish you a speedy recovery.

If you have any further questions, I will clarify.
Regards
