Husband (55yrs) had right sided inguinal hernia on wednesday. He previously had a left sided one done and covered with mesh a few years ago with far less side affects. This one is causing him loads of pain, plus periodic burning sensation over the whole mesh area. Not sleeping well and lots of bruising - he's taking arnica and painkillers which he seldom uses. He can hardly move at the moment and also getting back pain from the site where they put the epidural in. They did say it was a big one to repair but the bruising is extensive. He's only on paracetomol and ibuprofen which does not seem to be touching it. He is reasonably ok when completely still but any movement hurts a lot. Is this normal, he's not usually one to make a great fuss. Any ideas?
