My 83 year old mother had a stent placed in her right leg a few inches above the knee to help improve circulation. Since that surgery, she has considerable pain in the groin area and it becomes so severe at times, she cannot walk. She believes a nerve may have been damagd. The vascular surgeon has viewed an MRI and Doppler?, after the surgery and says the stent is performing.
Additional tests show an inguinal hernia and the possibility that the inguinal nerve may be causing her pain. She underwent one shot to deaden this nerve and the doctor said she would have relief in 72 hours. That was 3 weeks ago and she has had no relief. Any idea as to what may be causing the pain?
