  • Abdominal/Pelvic Pain - 10+ Years

    42 year old male, NYC, lower abdominal/pelvic pain for 10+ years. Recently hernia specialist performed a physical exam and believes it could be Spigelian hernia. Ultrasound and CT scan results show possible inguinal hernia and weakness in left lower abdominal. At this point Dr does not believe it requires surgery. What does weakness actually mean? Anything I can do to strengthen? Is it possible surgery would help pelvic pain? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    This is a good question and I would be interested in the response to the OP's post. Was told yesterday I had some inguinal/abdominal weak spots but got the impression that maybe things hadn't 'broken through' yet and were still contained by the 'fascia'. Made me think perhaps if true one could prevent or delay final stage hernia development by continuing to keep weight down and exercise carefully. But like the OP, I don't really understand completely from an anatomical perspective what that really means or if the question itself even makes sense from a doctor or surgeon's perspective.

      Not sure what your diagnosis is. Spigelian hernias should be repaired if they are symptomatic.
