Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the knee that you are having is not likely to be related to the hernia repair that you had. This is more likely to be due to osteoarthritis or a decrease in the joint lubricants. Taking proper supplements will help.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
