lifeboat, I’m just a fellow patient so don’t take this as pro medical advice…
Was your groin/hernia ultrasound with valsava to rule out hernia or recurrence? Have you tried a long course of anti-inflammatory? Assuming you can tolerate it, many clinics will try 30 and 60 day courses of strong prescription NSAID (not generic ibuprofen) which can apparently have a cumulative effect on reducing inflammation. Have you tried nerve block injections? Also I wonder if you had pain relief after a particular surgery, but the pain returned over time, it may be that the injury has returned or did not heal entirely before being re-damaged?
Dr William Meyers in PA is well known for groin pain and sports injuries. It may be worth re-visiting the clinic if you had good results there before.
Dr. Andrew Boyarsky in New Jersey is another potential east coast resource for inguinal disruption and sports hernia injuries
