Albert and JCSportsman -
I'm certainly considering going to Meyers. Don't forget that almost all the doctors surrounding sports hernia suggest treating SH conservatively with rest, and when that fails, go with surgery.
Another factor is that I have no insurance and no funds available. However if I become convinced that surgery is my only best way, I suppose I'll have to go into debt for the surgery if possible.
The other side of the coin is that anybody who carefully reads this gigantic thread at LetsRun, and pays attention to what they're reading, will come across many instances of surgery, by both Meyers and other surgeons, not working out well.
Although I want SH to be simple, it's not simple at all. I really appreciate everyone who comes to this board, like you guys have today, Albert and JCSportsmen, and share their experiences. Sports hernia is bigger than any one sufferer or any one doctor. But by collaborating and exchanging many experiences and angles of view, I do think that all of us together, our intellects combined by reasoned argument and discussion, will make progress against SH for ourselves and for future sufferers.
Even if you have surgery, your battle is only half-way over. One thing's for sure, sports hernia ain't simple.
