My INTENSE / DEBILITATING Right Groin Pain resolves with rest then comes back 8 weeks later
Can anyone explain if their groin pain is intense and then will subside if you lie down for several days (no lifting or major movement) ?
ME: I’m 49, and I had a full hysterectomy at Cleveland Clinic in May 2015. Right ovary remains. Reason provoking the surgery was uterine fibroids and right groin / deep right leg pain that prohibited walking during episodes. Six weeks after the hysterectomy laproscopic surgery, the most intense pain in my right groin and right thigh down my right leg began – worse than ever ever before. I was in so much pain that felt like burning and intense cramping in the right inner groin and right thigh and under my right butt cheek that I could not walk and I was brought to tears. No pain medication works. Lying down is the only relief. The episode lasted about 10 days. Then I had another episode three months later and then now again the worst episode three months later (resolving just a few days ago). I had two intra-vaginal pudendal nerve blocks to eliminate the symptoms for the first two episodes, but the third episode was treated differently by doing a pudendal block through surgical guidance through my buttocks. This surgical intervention seemed not to help at all, and I did not get relief for six days. I do not know where to turn. I’ve been talking to my surgeon at the CClinic, and she is helpful and knows of Dr. Towfigh, and she has referred me to a male hernia specialist here, but I am so afraid the pain will come back, and that no one will ever figure out what is wrong with me. This last episode I missed four days of work because the pain was so intense. Unless I lie down during the episode, i get no relief. Then, the symptoms pass (I’m doing NO activity at all really) and my life is significantly altered, but the groin and leg pain then subsides.
Does anyone have severe pain that goes away and then returns after time and after trying to resume normal activity? I feel I may have an inguinal hernia, but I’m being put through a lumbar spine MRI. I understand the search for the cause. If anyone has had a similar experience, I would be so grateful for your message. Grateful for your time. Thank you so much.
