It might be post-herniorrhaphy neuralgia. Chronic postoperative hernia pain, also known as post-herniorrhaphy neuralgia, is defined as a nerve-related pain which persists for more than three months and is unrelated to any other cause. It is not all that uncommon a condition, particularly for those who have undergone inguinal (groin) hernia surgery.
