You'll find a reoccurring theme in my contribution to these threads.
AP lingers (intervention or not). The surgery is not an optimization (ROC: you ran a marathon in less than 3 hrs and still think you are candidate for William's revision? If he cut you, I'd be worried about the good doc). Meyers (suture), Cattey (mesh). Presentation is elusive (symptomology similar to hip tears, lower lumbar/discogenic pathology and definitive diagnosis is best left to a pro (regardless of revision technique, a good reason to see one of the two or three top doc's out there). Malady can lead to compartmental deterioration and concomitant complaint that's not necessarily resolved by one procedure vs. another. Finally - there's a lot to read in these 9 or so pages; if you are really desperate (can't get out of car/up steps, sleep at night - let alone run), you owe it to yourself to read everything.
Hey - have your hand (MRI's on demand, Meyer's quick review) held through this passage...?http://www.orlandosentinel.com/sports/basketball/magic/orl-magicnotes1206jan12,0,4785576.story?coll=orl-magic
Grant's not the only one. This kind of nefarious debility leads the buff to call the stricken 'slackers' and is the kind of perplexing injury that, at one time, would have sports med's say things like "he's lost his legs".http://www.dailyprogress.com/servlet/Satellite?pagename=CDP%2FMGArticle%2FCDP_BasicArticle&c=MGArticle&cid=1128769293400&path=
BBallguy - look for the U of N protocol buried in these threads; that and reformer oriented Pilate's leading to squat routine & slideboard tools back to running/cutting at tolerance are about the best hope for non-surgical recovery (if you even have AP) I've found. Check out PT Gray Cook's work...
I've recent article where Meyer's says the Cinci Bengal's have the best protocol he's seen but I've yet to find it...
