| | ongoing pain from hernia repair, 3 yrs+
In March of 2008 I had an Inguinal hernia repair on my left side with staples. I have had ongoing pain since then, I have talked to the surgeon, had an MRI, 2 CT scans now, Xrays, and ultrasound, and Doctors still don't have any answers for me.
Recently I also had a vasectomy, when my doctor was work on my left testicle i could feel pressure in the old hernia location.
I read some other threads of people thinking nerves or chords were caught up into the hernia repair and being constrained, but I would think something like that would be caught on something like a CT scan or ultrasound.
I have been in constant discomfort or pain for years and ABSOLUTELY CANNOT sleep on my left side. This has gone on way too long and I've been trying to get answers but no one seems to have them or is willing to take the time to truly help me.
Any thought or advice would be appreciated more than you think. The past three years have not been easy dealing with this.
