Question: hernia


 cyanide_sunshine - Thu Oct 20, 2005 2:24 pm

I think I have a hernia but the doctor made me cough and said I didn't. There is a vein in my left leg in my thigh that pulses like crazy when I lift and my lower stomach feels strained. My lymph nodes in my leg get big too.


What should I do?

Why not consider a second opinion? Nobody knows your body better than you. Even if it is not a hernia, there may be something else that needs treatment.

Good Luck.
