Brief Answer:
It could be a hernia or adhesions

Detailed Answer:
Hi Jewelectibles,

From what you describe, I would suspect either abdominal adhesions after your previous surgery or a groin hernia.

If you have not had any radiological investigations, I recommend an ultrasound with Valsalva's manoeuvre, or a CT scan when you feel the pain.

Alternatively, a colonoscopy could reveal any other pathologies or inflammatory bowel condition.

Hope this helps.

Let me know if I can assist you further.
