    Possible hernia in Los Angeles

    The likelihood of an internal hernia if you have not had previous surgery is extraordinarily low. The real question is whether or not the CT finding from the first scan had anything to do with your symptoms. It is impossible to know. The most definitive way would be a diagnostic (and hopefully therapeutic) laparoscopy as Dr. Goldstein suggested. Only you can determine if the risk/benefit ratio is appropriate. Generally speaking, the potential risk is low, and the potential benefit is moderate. You however are not a statistic, and these estimates won’t predict what will happen for an individual. Hope this helps!
