Abstract


Inguinal hernia repair is one of the most common surgical procedures. Post-operative pain is one of the main factors determining sexual life satisfaction and general quality of life. However, not much research has focused on the problem of chronic pain after a corrective surgery and its impact on the quality of human sex life. Recurrent inguinal hernia to a large extent has been reduced due to the use of synthetic mesh, but there was a serious problem - chronic postoperative pain, which significantly reduces the overall quality of life of patients.
