Hi,My apologies for the delay. I had to be away for a while.
Thanks for the prompt response.
I'm currently under a great deal of stress related to several potentially very serious medical conditions that I didn't even know that I had until the age 59 (four years ago.) Prior to then, I thought that I was in excellent health and felt great.
And, I just found out about my venous reflux in my leg last week when I had ultrasound performed to rule out DVT and the tech "incidentally" discovered the reflux. So, that's now causing a lot of concern for me.
Regarding the hernia concern, again, I had right inguinal surgery with mesh four years ago and have felt mild discomfort on the left side occasionally since then.
If I understand your response, if I do have a hernia, I should be able to visually see and feel a bulge. And, so far, I don't see or feel anything abnormal. So, hopefully, as you indicated, today's exam didn't cause anything to be concerned about, in that regard. If something does occur soon, I will try to contact you again. But, in the meantime, thanks.
