My Granmas left groin pain seems to lift after passing a bit of gas. She says she knows if she can somehow pass a little gas or have a bit of a bowel movement her pain improves. Is this symptom on track with a potential hernia?
Some patients who have groin hernias or abdominal wall hernias note worsening of pain symptoms with meals and prior to a bowel movement. They may feel relief after a bowel movement. However, there are also patients who have constipation and strain to have a bowel movement. Thus the pain after bowel movement lingers.
In short, these symptoms are not necessarily specific to a hernia.
