Pain after surgery
I recently had bi-lateral laparoscopic surgery for inguinal hernias and had questions regarding my recovery.i went to the doctor after having lower burning abdominal pain on my left side with no apparent bulge. After examination, the hernia specialist located a hernia on each side and recocommend surgery. I went through the surgery 9 days ago and the burning pain has returned to my left lower abdomen. Additionally, I have additional pain on the side of the left testicle. The upper side of the testicle appears to be swollen and tender to the touch or movement. My right side is perfect. Note: I did not have this pain before surgery. My questions are as follows: Is this new pain normal and does it usually resolves itself? Is the old pain something not related to a hernia or does the old pain usually continue until the body heals from the hernia repair?
