Last year I had an inguinal hernia repaired near my right leg. About 6 months ago I noticed the same pain on the left side. I don't feel a lump like I did before, but the pain is the same. I went back to the surgeon who worked on my pervious hernia twice, and he could never find anything. He suggested that I go to a pain management doctor who could help discovered what the cause of the pain is.
The doctor wanted to get an MRI, but my insurance would only approve an ultrasound, which revealed nothing.
I don't know really if that is the right doctor to go to. I know there is such thing as a Sports Hernia, but from what I can tell that is a condition that is really hard to diagnose, and my doctor wasn't even 100% certain that it is a real thing.
Should I go to a pain management doctor? Sports medicine doctor? Another Orthopedic surgeon? Any ideas?
