      Pain resolution

      Usually, you should feel a difference in postoperative pain vs preoperative pain. That means, the quality of the pain after surgery should be different than the pain prior to the operation.
      SI joint pain is usually lower back and can radiate to the front. and groin.
      There are a wide variety of reasons for groin pain that spans many organ systems and specialties. We just published a whole book on this. If the hernia repair does not address the groin pain, then once the surgical pain is resolved and healed, it’s time to look at other reasons for the groin pain.
