How are you doing on strengthening your core muscles? Any luck?"
I still have a lot of work to do even after 3 months... my body is doing a lot of adjusting. I've had a lot of problems with my glutes, hamstrings adductors, my feet, and some sciatic nerve irritation. I haven't been as aggressive as some people have in rehab... not sure if that is good or bad since I think you have to kick it up a notch at some point. But I've been very careful. I think, more than anything, you have to listen to your body. Some of the docs, even though they are good at what they do, have no idea what each person's body is going to require in terms of healing time. Most are basing their recovery timelines (2 weeks, 4 weeks, 6 weeks, etc.) off of professional players, which is unfair to most of us who are posting here. A lot of us have been on the sidelines for years.
Having said all that, I can do several things that I couldn't do before surgery: lift weights, light jogging, and yoga. I am getting stronger, but like Albert, I have other injuries that I'm dealing with including a weak ankle and hamstring. I have doubts of whether I'll be able to step on the soccer field again, but I don't have any groin pain anymore; only inflammation. A big part of healing I think, is letting go of the injury psychologically. Your body can be very protective.
On the downside, my insurance company is still refusing to pay for the surgery, calling it "experimental." My doctor's office is still working on it -- so hopefully it will work out.
