Hernia site pain during menstration?
1) I haven’t had a hysterectomy, hence still having my period.
2) The pain typically would start at the tail end of my period and last for 3-4 days. It is 1″ below my skin, above the waist line, right where the mesh is installed. The only other time it will be sore is if I go to the gym (which isn’t very often) or bend a lot at work.
Today is day 8 with no relief. It isn’t fading or passing and it could be described as a constant soreness (7/10 pain scale) with periodic stabbing zings of pain, even when I am at rest.
My insurance when I had my surgeries was wonderful, but I switched jobs 3 years ago and now my insurance is horrible! Hubby wants me to go to the doctor but all they will say is “Lets get a CT and see what’s going on.” translated to lets waste money to guess at what the problem is! I have to pay the first $7,000 before my insurance kicks in a penny which is why I was searching to see if anyone else ever had had this issue. It would be nice to know if it was due to me swelling/retaining water during my period or if it is leaning more towards an issue with the mesh itself.
