ABSTRACT
The article discusses the inguinal hernia repair and the pain after the surgery. 5-10 percent patients suffer from chronic pain after the surgery. The neuropathic pain represents the persistent pain and nerve damage is the cause of it. It is alleged that the current literatures dealing with chronic pain lacks clear definitions, pain assessment methods, follow-up strategy and improper study design. Future studies are set to include six new domains to improve its quality and reliability.
