RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin
I have had this problem for almost 10 years now. I, like most of you, have been told that this pain was "in my head". I have read some negative feedback on letting this problem go on for too long. I have also read that the surgeries still can be performed if this problem has gone on for a long time.

If you had surgery after a period with as long as this, what were the results? Who did you go to?

Also, are there other doctors than Cattey (in Wisconsin) and Meyers (in Philly)?


I feel somewhat desperate to find answers, so any response is a welcome one. I would be willing to attempt the surgery even if the chance of success would not be high, because my gut feeling tells me that this sports hernia is the correct diagnosis.

Thank You.
