Hernia returned or a new one.
hi, I’ve just found this site while I was browsing and hoping to get some help. I am from the UK and twelve months ago I had hernia surgery. I’d had lots of problems before this, following a hysterectomy four years ago I have suffered from abdominal adhesions and chronic pelvic pain. I discovered that one of the causes of pain could be from a hidden hernia so after insisting, I had an ultrasound scan. The scan did indeed show that I had an incisional hernia despite there being no obvious lump. During surgery, my surgeon also discovered that I had a femoral hernia and he repaired them both using mesh. Unfortunately this has not helped my pain issues very much, and now, 12 months later I am in agony in my groin area. I am unable to stand for very long as I get a lot of pain and have a constant dull, dragging pain. I also think I have felt a lump a couple of times. I’m waiting to see my surgeon again, but I’m getting desperate. I can’t remember having this much pain from the actual hernias last time, and it’s right in the area of a femoral hernia again. Could it have returned, or maybe been affected by my adhesions? Or maybe it’s just a new hernia. I’m going to ring the surgeons secretary tomorrow and ask them to rush the appointment through because I can’t cope with extra pain on top of my normal levels! Thankyou for any advice or replies. 🙁
