General Surgeon 's  Response


Welcome to Healthcare Magic.

I appreciate your efforts for medical consultation in so much distress.
Well, if your ultrasound is telling that you have hernia on the same side as the pain then it is quiet possible there is formation of adhesion in the content of hernia and in that case you may need surgical intervention and for that you will have to consult a GI/ Gen Surgeon..And to get rid of your suspicion of obstruction/inflammation you can get CECT Abdomen with oral contrast done…it will clear all your doubts…

Wish you good health.
