Hi

Following power walk I experienced spontaneous labial swelling, followed by spontaneous black bruising (no injury or impact) with small labial lump, 4 days later a second spontaneous bruise appeared above pubic bone (A&E thought it was infected haematoma - later ruled out by ultrasound), 2 days later groin pain got worse. Paid to see a private gyne consultant oncologyst who suspects femoral hernia (MRI scans pending).

Problem is is this bank holiday fortnight - GP urgent referral sent last thursday to the consultant who will see me in her NHS practice- symptoms getting worse - yesterday 3 hours of hip and thigh pain and today I'm having problems walking and the dull ache no longer abates, aching when I urinate. Most web info posts refer to inguinal or sports hernias and their repair. I'm really concerned about mesh repairs and their tendency to cause chronic pain and worried about damage using keyhole. I always thought hernia repair was straightforward - not so it seems for those of us who are active.

Anyone got any advice/experience of femoral hernias? - (1) I'm paranoid about strangulation - other than intense pain, nausia, redness are there any other progression indicators? (2) Given the 10 week wait and its been nearly 3 weeks since my first symptomsI am thinking of going to Berlin,Germany and claiming the fee from my PCT - anyone tried this?

Replies gratefully received - thanks

I think I have femoral symptoms as well after a failed mesh repair. Just got to China and have no idea what to do. Very little info and very scary indeed. I'm male by the way.
