      I recently had an inguinal hernia repair done. I had a pinching / wriggling / burning sensation periodically in my perineal floor / groin region. This uncomfortable sensation was occurring before & after the surgery. I don’t have a clue what’s causing it. It feels like something is either trapped in my groin, or, a nerve is being irritated and is picking up movement sensations from the peristalsis action in my intestines. Its a horrific sensation.

      Could a hernia elsewhere be possibly causing this ‘referred pain’, or a nerve associated with the original hernia is being irritated? Impossible to know. Feels like a bulging sensation in my groin, although the hernia has been repaired. Perhaps the repair was not done strongly enough.

      Has anyone experienced similar?

      Was it mesh repair or tissue? And how long ago was repair? It may still just be settling down.

      Thanks for your reply.

      It was mesh repair, open. It was done just over 1 year ago.

      I also just discovered another hernia around 1 inch from the bottom of the scar of that repair. Thinking it’s one of these ‘indirect’ or incisional hernias. Sigh :/

      Good intentions

      Perineal hernias are a thing.

      I just posted in someone else’s Topic about seeking out a different type of specialist for non-inguinal hernias. Inguinal hernias are high volume run-of-the-mill hernias. If you read up on inguinal hernia repair you won’t find anything about looking for perineal hernias while repairing an inguinal hernia.
