  • Do I have a hernia?

    Posted by calligirl on March 30, 2017 at 2:45 pm

    I am new here, looking for answers. I started hurting last July. The pain is to the left of my bladder and it happens when I sit. I was working a lot of oveetime and I lean forward to see my computer.

    i have been to 5 drs. CT scan was normal. Both vag ultrasounds normal. Last GYN last week said he didn’t see anything but probably bc bladder prolapse and just have a hysto and bladder tuck.

    if this is prolapse, why is it hurting when I sit but not walking or doing other things? I can mash on it and it doesn’t hurt.

    I just wanted to know if I need to keep looking for an answer or just deal with the cheonic pain. I can’t see having surgery if I am otherwise healthy.

    thanks for letting me post. Any advice is appreciated.

    It is rare for someone to have no reason for chronic pain.

    Inguinal hernias can cause pain with sitting, especially leaning forward, such as behind a desk or at a dinner table.

    If you indeed have an inguinal hernia as the cause of your pain, CT may be normal or perhaps it was misread. I often move on to an MRI if the history and examination are suggestive of an inguinal hernia, since CT can miss the small inguinal hernias.
