RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &
peter,
that is exactly the problem i had.
i saw 28 doctors over 130 some visits before i finally met dr muschaweck. i have had only one follow-up with dr m, and that was 3 months ago in nyc, i drove down to meet up with her for 15 minutes. groin/ab wall was all ok from her perspective, and she recommended an experienced physiotherapist and some injections. since the docs here have no clue about ap there was no way my new sports med doc would do any injections. dr m would have referred me to the right guy but he is out of plan and would only refer me to another out-of-plan anesthsiologist. so, i figured i'd spend my money locally on non-invasive methods first, since it would cost about the same anyhow, if not less.
hoping i don;t need the injections, but it looks like i will in a few weeks just to be safe. i can tell you that the injections following post-ap surgery are common after about 6 weeks of pt with pain still around. at least that is how it tends to work, from my understanding.

i have had no follow-up help let alone pre-op help and advise. that is why i have had to post so many times here; i am basically on my own aside from the tips from others on this here thread.

i'd say that if dr m does your surgery then you can bet that it was done right and is successful. any residual pain would not be from an unsuccesful surgery(ies) but rather lingering pain signals (hence injections afterwards) or other semi-related issues that need to be looked at. dr m knows her stuff and when she is inside she inspects the whole region to see about other tears and the like. you would be in good hands.

from what i understand, from a very good source here in the us, is that both dr cattey and the doc at ucla are both very good options as well. but dr m seems to be the most experienced and dedicated to this injury. the roughly 5k per side is worth it to get the best in my opinion.
