I am sorry you are going through this. Perhaps you should seek out a second or third opinion with a surgeon who has specific experience with hernia repair, hernia repair complications, groin pain, and related issues. This is a complex topic and unfortunately there are fewer experts out there than you might imagine there would be.
Out of curiosity, are you male or female? Was your hernia symptomatic before the operation, and if so, how? Are/were you physically active, an athlete? Assuming it is compatible with your health, have you tried taking an extended course of anti-inflammatory like naproxen, mobic, ibuprofen? Have you been to a pain clinic or had any nerve blocks or similar procedures done? Do any specific activities make the pain better or worse?
Where are you located? Perhaps members on this forum can offer some nearby experienced doctors that may be helpful.
Best of luck, and keep us updated on your case and progress.
