  • Possible hidden hernias?

    I finally figured out to post a new post. (Sorry to the person in Oregon that I replied to with this post in the middle of their discussion).

    I have been suffering with nerve pain in my thighs for several years, but in the last year or so have also had pain in groin and hip area. I cannot stand for more than 15 minutes without being in a lot of pain!!! I do get relief when sitting but laying down is the best. I am overweight,, carrying alot of my weight in my stomach. I have had MRIs of lower back, pelvic. Also have had hip x-ray, abdominal ultrasound and ct scan. All of these tests have come back normal and I do not have a bulge, nor do I have pain when I bend over or cough. Therefore I am told that I do not have hernias and have gone to 2 different hernia doctors. I did have a diagnostic mri guided nerve block done in December of 2015 at Johns Hopkins. I had reached back out to that radiologist asking him to go back and look at my films and tell me if he sees any inguinal hernias and he stated yes that I have bilateral inguinal hernias. Problem is, he is the only one that sees this, both hernia specialists looked at same films and said that I don't have them. I am at wits end and just cry when I have to explain my pain to doctors for the 50th time out of frustration. Is it possible that I may have them and if so looking for a doctor in Maryland that might actually listen to me.

        Do you know if he will run tests to look for hidden hernias?

          Make sure that you get a copy of the last MRI/CSCAN that you had done. The more info that you can give him the better off you will be.

              Thank you, I have an appointment with Dr. Belyansky on Monday. I am bringing a cat scan disc that was done of pelvic and abdominal region back in November last year. I am hoping he will do an MRI with velsava as I have read about in your post. I have been to 2 other surgeons who say that they do not see anything on the cat scan and since I do not have a bulge or pain when I bend over they will not look any further into it. I have been dealing with pain for 3 years now, and am so frustrated that when I have to explain my problems again to a doctor, I just cry. Hoping this doctor will look further into what is causing my pain.
