A. hmmm...the lower back pain might indicate kidney problems. is there a chance your surgery got infected? is it red and bloated? i would go and check kidney function and blood works. just in case.

Q. I have terrible pain in my groin area when i try to walk. Any clues?

A. Well, first of all, it depends on your gender, since men and women have different things in their groin...

Is the pain aggravated by coughing or straining? Do you feel any bulge?
In this case, it may be an inguinal hernia, which is quite common in men.

Complications unique to mesh repair have been reported, such as inguinodynia.
The exact cause of inguinodynia is still unclear and various etiologies have been suggested, major being neuropathic and non-neuropathic.
Inguinodynia following Lichtensteintension-free hernia repair: a review.
Inguinodynia is the recommended generic term for chronic groin pain after hernia repair and should replace "neuralgia or mesh inguinodynia" to promote uniformity and avoid confusion in the literature.
Interstitial recurrence, with chronic inguinodynia, after Lichtenstein herniorrhaphy.
None of the reported patients had recurrence or chronic inguinodynia at one year follow-up in either group.
Based on the classification of pain by the IASP, post-herniorrhaphy inguinodynia can be broadly divided into nociceptive and neuropathic pain.
Neuropathic pain is caused by direct nerve injury and characterized by inguinodynia with radiation to scrotum/femoral triangle, paraesthesia, allodynia, hyperpathia, hyperalgesia, hypoesthesia and positive Tinel sign.
Zannoni M et al found that the prophylactic wide resection of selected segments of inguinal nerves, despite the apparent paradox of greater tissue damage appeared more effective than simple section at preventing postoperative inguinodynia, given both the lower incidence and the faster resolution of painful symptomatology.
