Hello. Thanks for using this forum. Post operative pain after hernia surgery does occur as a complication of this surgery specially due to the entanglement of the nerves which pass in the inguinal cannal either due to the placement of the mesh or during the healing process itself. As far as dealing with the post operative pain is concerned there are couple of methods which i am sure you must be aware of after visiting the pain clinic. However if the pain still is not under control, then either local block with help of local anaesthesia helps temporarily and for permanent relief surgical option is there in which the surgeon can again have a look at the operated site whether any nerve is being entangled. Removal of the testis along with the entire structure above it can help in someway since the final nerve innervation will be permanently removed. However your Urologist will be the best person to further contact and discuss on this problem. Regards.
