Reply To: Occult Hernia or Scar Tissue?
My condition is looking more like scar tissue. I saw Dr. Bachman and had an MRI. The MRI showed some adductor longus and pubis symphysis tendinopathy but nothing in the left groin where I’ve experienced most of my pain. Dr. Bachman didn’t feel that there was a hernia or that the other MRI findings were the cause of the left groin pain.
Oddly, I have had some improvement recently. When I initially posted, I was experiencing more pain than usual which coincided with more aggressive active release (myofascial release) from physical therapy. My PT says that the treatment can break up some of the scar tissue, causing more pain initially but less pain later.
