Hi Jackie,

Welcome to HCM.
Hernia repaired should not recur in 8 weeks time. You need to consult the surgeon who repaired the hernia and find out the reason for this. If necessary he may have to repair it once more.
Tummy ache makes it more urgent to consult your surgeon, to find out the cause for tummy ache.
