What can be done to cure the unbearable groin pain post flu making my father unable to stand ?

My father is a pretty active 60 male with well controlled diabetes (no insulin).He has a history of prostrate problems, and high blood pressuren (both controlled my medications), and had a hernia removed last year. Two weeks ago he became down with the flu and had an exceptionally violent cough (he burst a blood vessel in his eye from coughing so hard), he was prescribed antibiotics and given oral sterioids--he is over the flu, Today, he awoke with unbearable groin pain on one side of his body--he could not stand on his feet. He has no fever, and is not nasuaseated.

Hi Brit Giansante

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

Currently your father must be having a hernia inside which got entangled or a vessel must have been entangled.This has to be attended immediately ,please visit ER as soon as possible.
This might have happened because of severe cough.

Take care and get back to us if any query.
