Pain Running Down Leg
Two years ago I had open inguinal surgery. A year later I started having serve pain around my hip and running down my leg. Went to several Dr.’s and then back to the surgeon in May who thought there was another hernia on the same right side. Had surgery where he confirmed there was not a hernia but said he cleaned around the nerves and the mesh looks good. Surgeon was not to open about what he was looking for. It has been 7 weeks since the surgery and now I have different pain around my thigh and knee. I haven’t been able to run, ride bike or elliptical machine and started taking Advil. Question: Is seven weeks after surgery to soon to go to another Dr. about the pain? If I decide to go to another dr. what type specialty should I see? A pain specialist or Neurologist?
