recurrent inguinal hernia
I just turned 21 year old (female). and have had 2 inguinal hernia surgeries in the past 8 months period. first one was last year august and last one was may 12 of this year. I first noticed a bulge in my groin area in 2014, it would come up for a short time and then would go back down and u couldnt see nor feel it when it went down, but was very visible and could touch it when it came up, i was then diagnosed with inguinal hernia, i had surgery and just weeks after, i felt another bulge in the same area which caused a 10/10 rate pain, doc said it came back, had another surgery, and now im here 6 months post -op, and im starting to have groin pain again and a even larger bulge and swelling there that also goes up and down. In july, i had 2 abdominal/pelvic ultrasound, abdominal/pelvic ct scan with both oral and iv contrast, and abdominal/pelvic xray along with my gp examining me. they all came back completely normal. I am starting to wonder about tumors now since i’ve been struggling for 2 years now, 2 surgeries and no results, btw, mesh was used both times.
could use anyone incite now on my situation.
