I've had IBS for years (worse since I had my gallbladder removed 12 years ago) and for the past year, I have been getting pain in my right groin. It started out as just a "sting" in that area once or twice a week, and has gradually gotten to aching/pain almost every day. Saw my gastroenterologist and he ordered a CT scan of my abdomen, which was normal; I had a colonoscopy two years ago, which was normal except for a little scattered diverticula on the left side. I just saw my gyn. and had a vaginal ultrasound, which only showed a small fibroid, which I've had for a long time, plus some fluid behind my uterus. He said the pain could be my bladder, colon, or even referred pain from my back, since I have a lot of backaches. My family doctor thought I had a hernia, which I didn't, and next time I went to him, he thought it was my cecum. I am at a loss as to what to do now, but getting tired of this pain every day, and was wondering if anyone else had anything like this?
