Reply To: Possible Hernia?
Has she had any MRIs done? I would at least take her to a hernia specialist and if he orders an MRI make sure he reads it and not rely solely on the radiologist. With my first MRI ordered by my gynecologist they missed the hernia. I then went to a hernia specialist and he ordered it again from
his hospital where he has a relationship with the radiologist and they are trained to look for it. The MRI was done with valsalva maneuver which is bearing down while taking the image and makes it a little easier to see the hernia. I guess this would be the route to go to rule out hernia. At least you will know one way or the other and then see how to proceed.
best of luck to you. Please let us know how it goes.
