Re: Breakfall injury?

Ouch, UGH- i have a abdominal hernia- it's just ugly not especially painfull.
But sounds like you describe an inguinal hernia. Usually the dr recomends you try wearing a truss. It's like a jock- sort-of.
If it fails to fix itself surgical repair is the usual option. If you don't fix it one way or the other, you can have a very painful situatation(and life threatening) stangulatation of your lower gi tract.
As the bard said it: " hie thee hence to thy churgeon"
Hope your situatation is just a bruise and not a torn or herniated muscle group.
By the way, a testicular torsion can mimic an inguinal hernia - best see your physician, ASAP.
Kindest regards,
