I'm currently having pelvic grown pain it's in my right lower side of the pelvis and were the thigh, it first started when I was 7 months pregnant with my son until birth weeks later it went away. Feeling like it was breaking is how I'd describe it. Recently this pain has returned making it hard to do many things! When I sit for a short or long period of time ill be in so much pain walking is difficult! Opening my legs to either roll over or stick a pillow between my legs is almost unbearable. This pain has been worse on some days and better on others ! I haven't noticed anything that makes it better yesterday when just simply walking to one room to anothe is get a sharp stabbing pain in that area that would almost bring me to my knees.

Thank you so much for this query. I am Dr. Ditah and feel honored to address your health query today. I am so sorry to hear about this severe pain in your right groin and all the XXXXXXX problems you have been through. I hope your son is doing good.

We approach groin pain by looking at all the possible structures that and found there to see which could be at the origin of this pain.You have had multiple surgeries and still have multiple medical and surgical conditions that makes the possible list of causes not feasible.

From your history, the length, nature and severity of this pain despite being on oxycodone makes it a very worrisome pain. You need a detailed questioning, physical exam and tests before coming up with a list of possible diagnosis. I take this pain very serious because being on a powerful pain medication and still having this severe pain is so concerning.

I will suggest that you go to the ER for this pain. No matter what i say, it cannot replace an urgent visit to get the exact problem identified and addressed.

I hope you find this helpful. I wish you all the best as you work on getting this pain resolved. I wish you the very best of outcomes, too.
Once more, thanks for this opportunity to contribute in your medical care.
Dr. Ditah, MD.
