Well the surgeon said it might be a nerve might remember pain and he think this might be it as well. He checked her on both sides and he said he felt something. She has had a cat scan before and they didn't see anything but reading online about hernias that they can't always be seen on a cat scan. Is this true? The surgeon said that a ultrasound wouldn't find a hernia.
She had a cat scan of the lower stomach. She has had surgeries in the past. One for her ovary, gallbladder, and appendix. Do you think scar tissue could be covering up the hernia? All the surgeries have been done on her right side.
The pain on the right side is in the crease between her leg and groin and on the left side it is 3 inches below her hip. Can a surgeon feel a pinched nerve?
