Hi, Welcome to HCM,

Groin is the portion of the body in the region where the thigh meets the abdomen. Since you are mentioning of twisted tube, I presume you are talking about lower portion of abdomen, just above the groin and for the same reason I presume you are female. Since you had a ultrasound scan done I think ovarian and uterine causes can be excluded. However appendicitis or other bowel causes have to be considered.

If it is the groin that is affected, then enlarged lymph nodes in that region have to be considered, which may result from injury / infection in the leg on that side.

Consult a Doctor who has to examine the area of pain and do the necessary investigations to reach a diagnosis and treat you accordingly. Good Luck.

Hi i m a 16 year old boy named Robby. 4 days ago I had an operation for a non mesh hernia. I had a small hole in my groin that caused fluid to make my right testicle to swell up. I had the hole stiched up from my surgeon. I was wondering if I could masturbate without any harm. I don t want to risk opening the hole again. The pain isn t that bad anymore and I still plan on taking it easy. Thanks

X-ray taken of left knee, difficulty positioning right leg over left, felt pain and discomfort in right groin, large bruising appeared in groin. So much pain in the groin, went from walking perfectly to using a wheelchair and walker. 1 1/2 year later , right thigh remains swollen and I am unable to walk without right leg pain. What could have caused this problem.? Bruising dissipated slowly over about 6 to 8 months.

Hello, My wife had cold and cough for the last 4 days and I visited a Pulmonologist. He prescribed some tablets and also a nasal spray. She takes nebulization for 3-4 times a day(duolin ). She was an Astma patient in childhood.
Since yesterday, she is having unbearable stomach ache and pain around the umbilical cord region on abdomen and we rushed her to hospital. They conducted a Chest X Ray and Scan on the pelvic region. Both came out as normal. No specialist were available yesterday and hence we had to come back.
She had about 3-4 instances of vomitting in the last 2 days.

She was operated earlier for appendicitis and stones in the gall bladder.

She will be visiting an Gasteroenterologist today or tomm.
Do you have any advise on the next course of action.

Hi,

I am 19 year old caucasin female, 68inches, 161 lbs. In the last two years I have gotten sick often and think there has to be a conncetion between some of it. I am a college student from poverty level familys so I don't really have insuracne to get testing done.



In Nov 2009 (1.5 years ago) I got pneumonia, Jan 2010, an appendicitis, diagnosed with March 2010 H. pylori. In June I went to Arizona and California I did not tan at all. I went for a walk with a Caribbean, African and Native American Friend. They all got much darker but I didn't even though I didn't use sunscreen. July 2010, bad sinus infection, concussion (injury caused). Aug stomach virus? In Sept blood work was done and I was extremely Vit D deficient. So started taking Vit D and a Multi Vit. In Sept they diagnosed me with a kidney infection



Since November 2010, I have had colitis. There is pretty regularly blood in my stool which is normal texture. There is colon and abdominal pain associated with this. After an excretion it is worse. Especially during my periods the pain seems to be worse. I am often naseua or at least lack an appetite.

I am not anemic, C. Diff, parasites and an inflammatory blood test were negative. They suggested I tried going gluten free but it didnt seem to help

Since February Ive been getting chills, night sweats and occasionally fevers.

In March I fainted. We were talking about phlebotomy but Ive always found blood intersting. The next few days I know my bp was low like 95/60.

In april I started having heart palpations. My resting heart rate would range 120-58 but typically 100+. My bp range anywhere 144/103 to 120/56 to 112/82. My ekg look fine

The beginning of May my urine would be sometimes a burnt color but then an hour later it may be clear or sometimes it would be a greenish color. I typically drink 2 L of water per day. my eating habits havent changed. Three weeks later, I started getting intermediate flank pain. There was blood in the urine but everything else was fine. The doctors are assuming I have kidney stones.

I am waiting to hear from a free/probono specialist to have a colonoscopy done to hopefully determine the colitis source. But ive been waiting since march.

If you could think of anything that might possibly help me figure out what the heck is wrong with me I would be grateful.

Thanks have a great day!
