He hadn't thought of that, so I was sent to another doctor, who couldn't feel anything, but the article said that a sports hernia
, which I guess is a tear in the ligament or muscle in the lower abdomen/groin
area, doesn't show a bulge. The doctor insisted that an MRI wouldn't show anything, so he didn't want me to have one. I am now on Lyrica and Celebrex, and my surgery was postponed indefinitely to see if my pain is from the sports hernia.
