Residual soreness in the right groin after a hit. Had a left inguinal hernia repair. Should be concerned ?

While mowing grass last week I hit a hole in the ground so hard that I have a residual soreness ini the right groin , it only is noticeable when I move a certain way. I have had a left inguinal hernia repair , it does not really feel like a hernia, but I am 66 years old, the muscles are not as tight as they used to be! Should I just suppose it is a hernia?

no i do not think a direct injury in groin can cause hernia. I would suggest you to take rest. do hot water fomentation and Brufen tablet for pain relief. If you are ot feeling relief then you can get ultrasound examination of the groin as some time there can be blood collection.
