Welcome at HCM
I have gone through your query and being your physician I completely understand your health concerns...
in my opinion groin hernia has nothing to do with the scapular pain. that pain is most probably due to muscular in origin. all u need is reassurance and you should use acetaminophen to relieve pain. if not relieved then meet an orthopedic surgeon
as far as groin hernia is concerned you should meet ur surgeon so that u can be examined properly and he will decide whether u need surgery right now or not
meanwhile stay calm and avoid too much straining at defecation and lifting heavy objects. u can use tras belt as a conservative approach..
Hope your query is addressed adequately
