Referred shoulder pain (pain felt when the problem is actually in a different location) is very common after laparoscopic (small, narrow cut) hernia surgery. The purpose of this study is to look at the effect of a simple back massager, which can be readily purchased online or in a store, in addition to the use of standard pain medications.
