Hi,

I have been having intermittent pain in my left groin area about two weeks. Has anyone experienced this? I started Anastazole recently, so not sure if that could be related. I went to the gynecologist because I thought it might be my ovaries but it was too low. She suggested an ultrasound.

I also have had pain in the left groin, off and on for months. However, I did have DIEP reconstruction so I wonder if that has something to do with mine. I am getting an ultrasound on Monday and will let you know what they say.

I had excruciating pain in my left groin shortly after starting anastrozole. My MO took me off it immediately. The pain went away. I’m on letrozole now and my left hip aches but I can deal with it. I hope you can figure it out soon

Thanks Cherry3i and Peregrinelady. I guess I will wait a few weeks and see how it goes.

I had an ultrasound and they found a small inguinal hernia. They are not sure if this is the cause of the pain. I am seeing a surgeon and hopefully I can avoid surgery. Will keep you posted.
