How do I know when it's time to get a diaphragmatic hernia patch replaced?

I was born with a diaphragmatic hernia and I started having issues with really bad pains where the patch is. I don't know if that means it needs to be replaced or not.

If there is pain, you need medical opinion as to what is happening. The pain and patch sound connected. Do not prolong medical attention to this matter.
