Groin Injury Or Hernia
Hernia: Generally speaking, no. The usual predisposing factors for epididymitis are frequent urinary tract infections, sexually transmitted diseases, urinary flow problems from prostatic hypertrophy. In addition, recent surgery, especially in the urogenital region can cause it as well, so theoretically, a recent varicoselectomy could cause it. Best to see a urologist. ...Read more
Unlikely: Fibromyalgia is a relatively poorly understood disease, but is not thought to be caused by inguinal hernia repair.

This complex of symptoms certainly merits medical evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes: Could be any of those. I'd follow up with the last surgeon that worked on you to get an exam to figure out the cause. Don't go to another surgeon (except for a second opinion) as they will not be privy to your history. If the surgeon isn't available, see your primary care physician. ...Read more
Inguinal Hernia-Mesh repair 2 moths ago constipated/strained a LOT to defecate, dull pain in inguinal and perineal region 1 week. Bothersome?
Yes, because: It is inherent part of surgery, especially if it is indirect type of inguinal hernia. Cremaster muscle injury usually is of little if any clinical significance.

No connection: Unless the injury hits to bowels(area above the groins) there is no good reason to relate that hit or injury to the blood in your stools. I would advise that you go see your doctor especially if your bleeding persists. ...Read more
