I am going for an ultrasound for a suspected hernia on Monday. My DIEP surgery was in April 2016, but I have had this pain off and on for months. It seems to be aggravated by activity, so it might just be muscular. However, it is something I need to quit putting off. Will let you know what we find out. My primary care physician ordered it, finally, after I mentioned it on several visits.

I did but not from the kind of surgery you had. Mine was lower left quadrant of my abdominal area and was from the six major abdominal surgeries I'd had over the years.

I'm glad you're following up on that; mine definitely hurt, all the time. Once it was fixed (and all the massive amounts of scar tissue in my abdominal cavity was removed) I felt 100% better.

I went to my surgeon and he felt for a hernia, but couldn’t feel one. He ordered a CT scan and I am waiting for a call to schedule it. He said that if it is a hernia, it is deep ( I can’t remember what he called it) and if not a hernia, scar tissue could be causing the pain. Thanks for replying, Ed, and good to hear you felt better after surgery.
