pain in my right groin going around my back
Dr. Jacobs has read all that you have posted on HerniaTalk.com and his recommendations come based on the information you provided, discussion with me, and his significant experience.
I defer to you and the surgeon you choose to treat you to have a discussion about what is ailing you and how it can be treated. That said, if you wish to have a cure, and surgery is the cure for your ailment, then you must mentally prepare yourself to make that decision. It is a decision you must make alongside your surgeon.
I am truly shocked with the number of repeat imaging studies and other procedures you have had in a very short time. Thus, my hesitation that another study is being ordered, when a prior study has already answered the question. Besides, you should save your resources for actual treatment by a specialist, rather than performing studies which may not be necessary.
