    Could this be a hidden hernia ?

    Hi Dr Towfigh
    Well I’m scheduled with you for a consult on August 18 and proposed surgery on the 20. I just have a couple questions, first I can tell my symptoms are now daily and worsening. I’ve noticed more cramping in both groins along with the other symptoms as well as some
    Nausea on occasion. (1) Is the cramping something I should be concerned with? As you know your very popular, so I am with the earliest appointment available. (2) Should I have a back up dr here on the east coast that you could recomend. Dr. Ramshaw is in his transition to relocate so not an option. I had a massage today for relaxation and just being on my stomach and having lower back done gave me the worse cramps about 30 min after. I’m assuming that’s what caused it ( So no more back rubs til taken care of). I laid down and iced and helped a little. I refrain from er as I know it will be same sonerio nothing wrong!
    I almost jumped on plane and considered er there, then they would call you haha! I’ve researched and know you are the dr to do this with a positve outcome and no complications(4 years long enough).
    Lastly, (3) contemplating driving(my husband and sister not me) so I can get up more often and lay if needed or should I bare the flight.
    I’m sorry to be a bother, I just want to make sure I’m ok to wait 3 more weeks and the best option for travel now.

    Thank you
    P.S. Myron and Sheila the best!!!
