Operation took 30 min, Ga was given and I was fully awake after 1 hour and was talking normally to everyone. I did not felt much pain in recovery period till first 6 weeks. In 7th week I went to Mumbai on flight after landing I was feeling little pain and discomfort just above penis like burning sensation. On and off I still feel that burning sensation and pain if stand for more than 1 hour or sitting straight for long hours. Last night I went to disc and had a light couple dance and it pained and after sitting for 30 minutes pain went away. Plz guide me is there anything serious or it will go with time.

Hi, Thanks for the query. Healing is faster in case of laparoscopic hernia repair. In your case it's almost 2 months since the operation. So, it is unlikely that your pain is related to previous surgery. But there is a possibility of recurrence of hernia if there is some strain to abdominal muscles. Even simple cough can cause hernia. My suggestion is please take rest for few days. Don't lift any weight. Don't do any exercises. If you have cough get it treated. To relieve the pain, please take Tab Diclofenac 50 mg one tablet whenever you have pain. Wait for few days. If the pain doesn't reduces, I think it's better to see your treating doctor once. Hope this helps.
