Chronic pain and recurring Hernias
I am a hernia surgeon in NY. Your story is unfortunately not uncommon and very frustrating. My advice is to try the nerve block first. Even if you have a recurrence on the right, if it is not bothering you, you can leave it alone for now. Get your pain issue solved first before having more surgery which will just complicate the issue.
