Customer Question

I had ablation in Dec which apparently was successful. In February i started to have considerable pain in my groin and my G.P. diagnosed a strained muscle, then phlebitis, then scar tissue and later after an x ray he thought i had osteo arthritis. I do not know it i need advice from either a neurologist or vascular surgeon. My G.P has been advised by the surgeon who did the ablation that he suspects there is some nerve entrapment related to my femoral punctures i addition.I feel now that i require a second op ion

HelloNerve entrapment does not really occur to any great extent from femoral puncture.The doctor you need to see is an MD specialist in physical medicine and rehabilitation.Pain in the groin, if not from hernia, or prostate problem is often referred pain from the hip.This is a structural problem, and best diagnosed by the PM&R doctor.In the UK, this is called a non-invasive orthopedist.You probably need a x ray of the him, possibly an MRi of the lower spine.It depends on exam findings. OK, so you might have more questions or want to give me more information: Please use reply to expert if you have further questions.

What is a non-invasive orthopedist called in the U.K i have never heard of it..
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 10 months ago.
It is called a non invasive orthopedist.It is an orthopedist that does manual medicine.Also many sports medicine doctors do the same thing. The program would be an assessment of your structure.Then the correct physiotherapy, home exercises, manipulative therapies, electronic therapies, and even traction if needed.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Thanks for that, do you have any knowledge of this occurring after an ablation?
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 10 months ago.
It is usually coincindental to lying on the table.The structural problems are already there, but come out after the surgical procedure.I suggest you have the work up I have suggested.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Ok , what about the trapped nerve, have you come across that before because i think that is what is causing the pain.
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 10 months ago.
Yes, but it is not from the femoral puctures.This is why I have suggested a combination of x ray of the hip, and MRI, probably of the lower spine.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Ok thanks for all that, can i come back to you another time if necessary?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Also how do you know it was not from the femoral punctures if the surgeon who did that ablation thought it was?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Are you still there?
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 10 months ago.
Ask the surgeon how the punctures would still , anatomically, be reffering pain to the groin now.
