Swelling and burning sensation on inguinal canal areas, undergone hernia surgery. Hernia recurring?

is it possible to severely aggrivate an old hernia surgery area after heavy lifting. I had swelling and severe burning sensations in the left and right ingguinal canal areas and just above my testicles. the burning has subsided some what and the swelling is down, but my doctor says i have a right side hernia, but my left side hurts much more. I had a mesh done one the left side in 2003.

Hi and welcome to HCM. Thank you for your querry.
It can be hernia recurrence,this isnt unusual but also there could have been nerve damage during the surgery and this is also not uncommon complication. It ca also be mesh infection but it would manifest with some other symptoms. You can do ultrasounds to confirm is there hernia recurrence or not. Nerve damage can be succesfuly treated unfortunately. Wish you good health.
