It could get better if you do the proper rehab regimen. Look for the Michael Boyle regimen online.
First, you have to determine if it is a 1) tear or 2) inguinal wall deficiency with nerve compression. There are separate specific tests for both - an MRI with special protocols and a color doppler dynamic ultrasound with cine-loop. Although these specific tests are crucial, it is even MORE crucial that you get a radiologist that knows how to perform and properly read the images.
Boyarsky...He is a disciple of Dr. Muschaweck, and I'm sure you read my report above. He looks for what she looks for. I don't know if he also does the surgical procedure, but what I can tell you is that her repair job is basically an inguinal hernia repair, even though you may not have any visible bulge. Actually, the procedure she uses to repair a sports hernia, she also uses on 70% of her patients in Europe for a standard hernia repair. In the end, you are getting a hernia repair job. Now, that being said, I would try to find a hernia specialist in the states (provided you live in the states). What you would be officially diagnosed with for those specialist is an incipient hernia - or the very beginnings of a true hernia. If you are opposed to mesh, there is Dr. Kevin Petersen in Las Vegas. He has received much praise on various medical forums for his hernia expertise. Then there is Dr. William Brown in California that does sports hernia surgeries. From speaking with patients, his surgery is a cross between Meyers' and Muschaweck's. Now, if you don't mind mesh, there are plenty of other doctors to choose from that do sports hernia surgery.
Meyers...mehhh, I wasn't impressed when I saw him. He does more of a pelvic floor repair if you have muscles tearing away from the pubic bone, mainly the rectus abdominus muscles. He relies on his MRI with special protocols to see these tears. But I will warn you, when I asked him to show me the tears that the radiologist supposedly said were there in the official MRI report, he couldn't show them to me. As in...he couldn't find them. He ended up talking down to me as a way to deflect my questions about the tears. But this is a whole other issue. Anyway, if you decide to get the MRI done, be insistent that they do it with dye contrast. They are looking for a very hard to see tear or tears and the dye will help show anything that is occult or elusive.
I hope some of this helps.
Best of luck.
