Mesh inguinal hernia repair

Not EXACTLY vagina related, but my issue is happening very close to the area!

Has anyone ever had a hernia repaired with mesh?

If so, have you had any weird after effects? Pain?

I had an inguinal hernia repaired three years ago (only 3% occur in women, I'm so lucky). Basically, I had a weak spot in my abdominal wall and my intestine was poking through (the messed up part is that I had it for YEARS, like, since I was a small child. I just thought that's how it was supposed to be until it started hurting). I had it repaired with a synthetic mesh instead of sewing it shut, as the mesh repair has a much quicker healing time.

However, in the last week or so, I've been feeling pain and discomfort at the hernia site (lower right abdomen). It feels very similar to how it did before surgery, but there is no bump. I'm planning on seeing the doctor about this soon, but I just wanted to know if anyone else has had a similar experience!
