Re: Inguinal pain but no hernia
Certainly sounds very similar to my case. IBS which can be controlled with Spasmomen but not always. then a hernia type of pain, also on the right side.
Interesting for me is that I had a bad cold over Christmas, followed by a bad cough. One night I got out of bed at 3am, with a coughing fit and suddenly something went 'pop' in my right inguinal area. I immediately thought I had done some damage but, in fact, I have not had the hernia type of pain again since that night although I have had one or two instances of IBS at the same site. They immediately responded to treatment. So, that is about a month ago. Now I wonder if there was a small bowel pinch that was released by the coughing.
Don't worry about the operation for hydrocele. It's really very straightforward.
