Pain- post hernia repair

I underwent an inguinal hernia repair surgery 5 years back using Mesh. I don't know the medical terms and much more details about the mesh and surgery. And now from past 3-4 days, feeling some minor pain in operated area(stitching area). Its on and off while sitting, driving and even some time while resting on bed.

Hi, it could be due post hernia repair adhesion formation, which is dull aching pain.
Treatment is usually not required.
Consult surgeon for further advice...
