The most common reason for pain is the mesh or scarring of the nerves.
Ask your doctor to inject the mesh with lidocaine. If you feel better that will be strong evidence that removing the mesh will help.
If injecting the mesh does not help, then inject the ilioinguinal and the iliohypogastric nerves with lidocaine. If that helps then the nerves are a component of your pain.
