Bilateral inguinal hernia
Hi all I have a suspected bilateral inguinal hernia and have an ultrasound later this week. My question is if I can deal with the pain while running would I cause myself any more or lasting damage continuing to run, VLM in eight weeks for a charity so would like to continue training. Would a hernia belt help to reduce the pain while running? I have been prescribed naproxen to help with the pain but they don't really do a lot. Is there any other type of medication I can take to ease this type of pain. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you....
Don't want to be rude but why do you ask this on a forum? Ask you own doctor and discuss your plan with him after your final diagnosis. Maybe he is able to help you out with a solution. Don't rely on a forum for your own health! Good luck
Agree with all the above. I wouldn't trust anyone on here for spot on advice....
Probably since he wants to see the results of the ultrasound first. That result, together with your story and the physical examination performed by your GP will be the basis of the answer later. Just ask him again after all this and you will probably get an answer. Trust me, I am a doctor -)
Thank you runningmax, tried to run tonight but it is so painful I couldn't manage anything, think I have now answered my own question.....????
