Bilateral hernia repairs
47 yo female High level triathlete/ runner…. Dr after dr after dr since January.
Pain R femoral triangle and R groin for 18 months.
Pain increased after hard training block. Had to stop biking and running.developed pain left side.
Iliopsoa bursae injection, iliopsoas trigger point injection, hip joint injection, SI joint injection, L3/4,4/5 RFA, prolotherapy to rectus femoris tendon x 2….alll with no results.
FINALLY get into MS radiologist for US: B femoral hernias, R indirect inguinal hernia, conjoint tendinosis, remote R adductor longus tear (players college soccer).
Finally an answer! Went into surgery. Accepted with hours and hours of tears that racing is not an option in 2018 and coaching girls varsity soccer would be tough as would be working a nOccupational Therapist.
No femoral hernia, no Indirect inguinal hernia but had mesh inserted into bilateral inguinal canal due to weakening?Pain is severe and I’m not usually a wimp.
Pain has always been worst at femoral pulses.
Feel like I might have had surgery for no reason.
will I ever get back to racing , Coaching, working as an OT?
Man I expecting too much?
What if I had mesh implanted for no reason ????
i feel like my whole life has changed and I still don’t have a diagnoses.
