I had open inguinal hernia repair 5 wks ago released

Patient : I had open inguinal hernia repair 5 wks ago released no restrictions. Did heavy yard labor and now have pain in the groin hernia area. Did I damage the repair or entrap a nerve in the mesh? I was checked and the hernia has not returned. Please help I am so scared I caused perminant pain.
Doctor :   Hi. Working so hard so early was not ideal. Well, whatever happened can not be reverted back. Consult your oper ating Surgeon. Get a confirmed diagnostic and medicines for pain Will get the relief, and further care. If the pain remains, it can be reduced by medicines or small surgery if necessary. Hope this helps you
