    Shooting pain in the groin area

    After a recent colonscopy, I was left with groin pain and flank pain (burning, throbbing) in my left side and posterior flank on the left radiating to my groin. I cannot raise my left leg, I cannot bend foward, and I cannot lift my left leg sideways because it pulls and feels like something restricts it. A hip CT scan showed nothing, and my kidneys are fine as well. I have had a bowel function nerve conduction study and it showed that there were three of four nerves damaged, but there was no follow-up.  It's the constant groin pain and aching that gets me down and the throbbing in flank area that is really getting to me.  I cannot lie down or sit on the left side. Does anyone have any advice on how to deal with this?
