    What you describe (barbed wire under the skin and into the inner thigh) is suggestive of nerve pain, specifically the ilioinguinal nerve. This may be temporary and just due to inflammation in the area, which will resolve. Anti-inflammatories, such as Aleve, may help with this until your are fully recovered. If it is severe, then neuropathic pain can be temporized with a local injection of anesthetic with or without steroids. A surgeon or pain medicine physician can help with that.
