I believe I am suffering from a hernia. It has been a long battle. Today I saw a General Surgeon and he could not feel a hernia. He wants me to have a CT scan. I told him of my research and ask about doing a MRI with a Valsalva maneuver. He told me that he didn’t like doing that because it would be hard for a person to hold the strain. I also ask about doing an Ultrasound. He said it would be his last choice. I don’t feel like the CT is going to show anything and I am thinking I might cancel the scan. I want to find a doctor to diagnose my problem. Can you recommend anyone in Mississippi? I saw that you are a member of the American Hernia Society. There is a doctor in my area & I have put a call into their office asking if he has ever diagnosed a hidden hernia in a female. I am waiting for a call back.
