    Possible femoral hernia

    Hi LKPittman,

    Did you find out if your pain was due to the labral tear in your hip or a hernia, or both? I hope you have gotten help and are in less pain now. I’m in a similar situation. The MRI of my hip shows torn labrum, so I was given shot of cortisone into hip but it did not help. I was then sent to a total of 3 orthopedic surgeons who told me the type of pain I had could not be from the torn labrum. They did NOT suggest what it could be. It’s just been from reading Dr Towfigh and others online that I’ve gotten the idea to check for a hidden hernia. Just finding it hard to get a doctor who knows about it. I’m happy for you that you live near enough to see Dr. Towfigh…if I lived on the west coast, that’s who I’d be seeing. If you are willing to write, I’d like to hear how you are faring.
