  • Pain 4 weeks post-op non-mesh

    I had a Shouldice repair done 4 weeks ago and I have been having unusual pain since 1 week after surgery.

    It started in my left leg after doing a bit of a long drive where the back of my leg at the knee level was feeling inflammed. I then felt along the nerves and they hurt.

    Two weeks later, I start feeling a dull ache in my left thigh up to the groin area. There is a specific part on the bottom right section of my buttox between the butt check and the anus.

    I also have pain on the outside of the left leg.

    Is it likely a compressed nerve causing this pain? It makes it hard to stand for long periods of time and walk long distances.

    sounds like a lumbar spine issue…
