Had bi-lat hernia surgery in early Jan. I was definitely diagnosed correctly, had some slight bulges on both sides which had to be addressed. Surgeon said upfront this might not cure what was ailing me, but I was hoping that was the source of the pain. So, 2 months later, little to no running, couldn't tell if the problem was solved, hoped for the best, ran a 1/2 marathon in Sacramento to get a qualifying time for NYC marathon in the fall, which I did barely, but the pain is still there, just like previous to the surgery. My question, and I believe I've read it somewhere before in the X amount of pages in this thread, could I have had, in addition, a sports hernia? Or any other ideas, i'm kinda at wits end, and am pretty close to coming to grips with the fact i'm aging, and might not be able to do long races, and will have to stick w/ shorter ones. All i can say is that in the general groin area, they flare and tighten as I run anything over 6 miles.
Any help, advice appreciated...
