The shear stress occurs because your tissues are more flexible and stretch more than the mesh.
So when you bend and the mesh does not that is a source of pain.
See your doctor to be sure that you do not have a recurrent hernia.
If the pain is from the mesh then a steroid injection into the mesh may help.
regards.
