Are these symptoms of an “occult female hernia?
Absolutely can be signs for an occult hernia.
Do you have pain with coughing, laughing, getting out of bed or car, prolonged sitting, prolonged standing? Is it worse at the end of the day, better when lying flat? Worse with your period? Painful with sexual intercourse? Do you feel a lump or swelling at the groin area or above the crease? Does the pain radiate down the top of your thigh, around to your hip, to your back, up to your belly, or into your vagina?
What did your hernia surgeon say? Did the ultrasound or MRI pelvis remark about the hernia area at all?
Go to the American Hernia Society web page or let me know which part of town you live so we can help you find a specialist who can evaluate you.
