Woman femoral hernia
To start I am a woman, diagnosed with umbilical hernia, inguenal hernia, however they are not what’s causing my pain. My family doctor has felt the femoral hernia but imaging shows nothing. There was a point I could not put my pants on because the pain was excruciating. She pushed it back in and for the first time I could walk and felt like me again, sadly this did not last. The pain level when she pushed it in nearly caused me to pass out from hurting so bad, but it worked temporarily. I have seen men general surgeons, sadly my woman doctor is not a surgeon. She can’t understand why a surgeon can’t feel it. I even traveled from AK to WA state to see a so called hernia doctor that was dismissive and rude to me wanting me to see a pain center, why? So I can be on pills?? No thank you. I had to break down and take a couple of them and they leave me feeling more helpless than before. I want to be me again and I want my life back. I can’t vacuum or do any of my normal routine. I feel like I’m 80 and I’m only 44. I’m beyond frustrated with the pain and it’s affecting my overall health making my ovary cysts more painful as I stress more. I’m a hot mess and desperately need help. Feeling defeated and worthless at this point.
