I recently had an ultrasound that showed a possible non-reducible femoral hernia (right groin area). But an MRI showed nothing. The consultant said that what was found in the ultrasound could be fatty tissue and that “everyone has fatty tissue”.
I’m wondering if I should pay for an upright MRI, because I experience pain when standing, walking, bending etc, not lying down (and I was lying down in the MRI I’ve already done). I’ve read that an upright MRI can help detect sports injuries, and my pain started after physical activity (giving CPR). I’ve also wondered if this could be a muscle tear or something.
Does anyone know about upright MRIs or have any ideas of what I could do next? I could try to get a laparoscopy but my pain isn’t localised to one spot.
Any suggestions welcome
