Have I messed up my hernia surgery?
Back in August of this year Dr Towfigh gave me my life back after suffering for 2 1/2 years in pain where many doctors told me nothing wrong go to pain management. She performed a bilateral inguinal hernia and a right femoral hernia.
Everything was going great took a little longer than 6 weeks to feel fully back to doing the things I love to do.
Playing soccer with the grandkids I pivoted and felt a tear or rip sensation and thought oh boy! Had some pain and iced it and rested it. Had little stretching and pulling sensations on and off and assume scar tissue and continued doing as I do. Back in February had lots of pain and in groin and upper thigh and contacted Dr. Towfigh who suggested possible abducttor strain to ice and ibuprofen and if not better MRI . Felt better after a week so no MRI . Groin discomfort on and off and upper thigh leading to knee pain about three weeks ago, so went to orthopedic who said It was the patella tendon and shot steroid and recommended physical therapy to strengthen abducttor muscle and learn exercises to strengthen. I started Thursday and since I have had worsening groin pain down into inner thigh and lower stomach heaviness as well as pain in the belly button area. Nausea and burning in groin and lower abdomen as well.
My question is do you think I have done something to mess up the surgery and should I continue therapy or rest again. I admit I have been landscaping and gardening and not thinking lifted a few slightly heavy rocks as well. Sorry so lengthy but I do not want to go through misdiagnosis again any suggestions would be appreciated. I want to continue being an active women again . Thank you for this forum
