One thing is says for treatment is:

does someone have a list of stretching and strengthening that this might include? i would susepct you would want to avoid the adductor machine at the gym or doing v-ups or leg raises since they would put stress on the area. any suggestions for exercises would be much appreciated.


TreeWagger -

I've heard someone say they had poor experiences with lower abdominal stretches. But here are some groin stretches, in the link below. I've just started investigating these myself, but haven't tried them out of caution.

But I do notice that when I have pain in my left groin, or when my left testicle feels like its getting pulled, I can make those symptoms disappear for a while by simply stretching my right hamstring. But I've read that it's easy to irritate one's hamstring by stretching it too often, so I'm trying to do that only as needed, and very gently.

TreeWagger, I wish you a speedy recovery. It sounds like we're following the same general path.
