Had laparoscopic inguinal hernia surgery almost two months ago. Things went well enough and I was virtually pain free after 6 weeks of rest, I was cleared for normal activities.

So I played some golf and developed a tightness and pain in the hernia area. I stopped all activities again and rested. Since then I have had daily pains off and on and now I am getting a sore testicle on the side where the hernia was. I have no swelling or discolorations. I am not overweight nor in poor health otherwise. My bodily bathroom functions are fine. I am just concerned things are not getting any better.

Any ideas of what may be happening and the chances more rest will be the best answer?
