A laparoscopic hernia 

The soft tissue is often part of the intestine. It's easy to see and feel the bulge, although not all are visible by the patient, especially when obese.
Symptoms include pain, especially when a person coughs, bends or lifts a heavy object.
Treatment may not be necessary. If a hernia is growing or painful, surgery can repair it.

Laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair uses an instrument called a laparoscope. Between two and four small incisions are made through the abdominal wall through which are passed the laparoscope (a thin telescope with a light on the end) and surgical instruments into the abdomen.

laparoscopic hernia (Recovery time)

Most people who have laparoscopic hernia repair surgery are able to go home the same day. Recovery time is about 1 to 2 weeks. You most likely can return to light activity after 1 to 2 weeks. Strenuous exercise should wait until after 4 weeks of recovery.

Symptoms indicating hernia mesh failure include:
Bloating or an inability to pass stools.
Heat and soreness around the surgical site.
A noticeable lump in or around the area of an original hernia.
Fever, nausea, and vomiting.
