Three year ago my wife had hernia surgery. She has not felt the same for the last year, or really since the operation. The incission from the hernia repair was over a previous one from a hystarectomy. In the last few months she is experiencing a lot of pain in the area and some numbness in her right leg(scare on right side). She is walking hunched over and half draggin her leg. The doctors have performed an Ultrasound (negitive) and a CAT scan also negitive. They are suspecting scar tissue nerve damage, only they have not confirmed anything. My question is who is the best specialist to see that would deal with eliminating her pain. So far all we have gotten is there is nothing they can do so go see a pain management doctor. Seems to me that they should be able to do a whole lot more than that. Or at least confirm what is the root cause.

Thanks for any advice.

  • I am sorry about your wife. How is she feeling now? My Husband had a hernia surgery 3 years ago in the abdomen(left side), now its come back . We are planning to get it fixed soon. However, he complains of numbness in his left arm, back. I dont know if this is a hernia related issue. We are trying to find out what it is.
