  • Any other explanation?

    I posted my story below. Questions; Is it possible to definitively rule out a hernia without surgery? Are there other possible explanations for such searing, awful groin/pelvic pain? This has gone on for nearly 3 years.

        That is difficult to say conclusively, but some imaging studies can be pretty accurate at diagnosing a groin hernia without surgery. The most reliable methods appear to be the following:

        - dynamic ultrasound with valsava of the impacted groin (sometimes standing up so that weight / gravity works in your favor as well)

        - dynamic MRI with valsava - Dr Towfigh has done research on this particular approach which you can find some here: https://www.researchgate.net/publica...Occult_Hernias I believe Dr Towfigh also has a specific MRI protocol for this purpose, which you may be able to get by emailing her office directly.

        Good luck and keep us updated on your case.
