Possible Hidden Hernia?
Thank you for your response and for the reassurance that I’m not crazy. I knew I wasn’t crazy as I had a lime size protrusion in my groin that would come and go. It was obviously a hernia.
When I go to the AHA site to find a surgeon it asks me for the physicians name, which I don’t have. My home is in the Bay Area of CA, but my hysterectomy is to be done in Phoenix, AZ by Dr. Castellanos. I would be willing to travel to LA (or elsewhere) to see a hernia specialist if there are none in northern CA or Phoenix. If most of my pain is due to a hernia my priority would be to get that fixed and see if the pain resolves, especially if it is an obturator hernia, as I understand that these can be dangerous if undiagnosed and not repaired. For quite some time I have suspected that I have regular episodes of partial bowel obstruction. Now that I’ve learned more about obturator hernias this concerns me.
Could I have developed an obturator hernia from POP surgery that involved going through the obturator foramen?
