Can air within soft tissue of pelvis extendn round right lateral pelvic wall out throught both obturator foramin come from a perforated bowel rectum ?
Yes and other causes: As any gas in the soft tissues is abnormal, this should represent infection unless there is another explanation (very unusual). Causes in this area would include: diverticulitis, appendicitis, rectal perforation from trauma, inflammation or cancer, urologic infections, or generalized soft tissue infections of the perineum (Fournier's gangrene) in susceptible individuals. See MD immediately ...Read more
Redundant vaginal tissue? I noticed a small protrusion of tissue from my vaginal opening. No pain. No other symptoms.
Most likely normal: At age 23, it is unlikely that your description would correlate with a significant prolapse or defect in vaginal support.

Short answer - NO: A femoral hernia repair is done outside the peritoneal cavity, in which the bowel lies. Only in the most bizarre situation would blood in the stool or intestinal blockage be related to your hernia repair. An unrepaired femoral hernia can indeed lead to bowel obstruction if the loop is entrapped in the defect. It should not cause bloody stool. Discuss with your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more
Appendix, colon cancer and abdominal hernia mesh implant scar tissue causing periodic bowel obstructions. Can anything be done about the scar tissue?
Yes: Imagine your intestines are like a rope in a bucket with glue poured over them.

Hemmorhoids: The most common reason to have thickening in the perirectal region would be hemorrhoids. These are swollen veins that sometimes develop clots in them. An infection in the peri-rectal region can cause swelling, such as herpes, warts, and bacterial infections. A perirectal abscess can also cause swelling and pain. If there is significant pain and swelling, you should be seen. ...Read more
Possible: The location of a femoral hernia is adjacent to the femoral vein and artery going down the leg. I suppose if excess scar tissue built up, it could compress on these structures, but in general, i expect scar tissue to fill empty space and mesh, not compress on adjacent structures. An ultrasound could evaluate the flow of blood in these vessels to determine if any flow has been compromised. ...Read more
