RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &
Thought this thread coming back was good. I have had constant pain down low for about 8 years now. Had a hernia exploratory surgery over two years ago. This did nothing and I was running lightly about 10 weeks later. Had a cortizone shot in the pubic region a year later when the pain came back. This seemed to help a lot after about 2 months. I was about 80% and then with about 5 -7 weeks of high mileage I was hurting twice as bad. So I seeked out Dr. Cattey in Wisconsin. He did a athletic publagia surgery and said my lower stomach muscles where pulling away from my pubic bone. He made 3 incisions or stab cuts in my lower abs below my belly button. This was 4 weeks ago tomorrow. I did not exercise the first 2 weeks and on the third week last week I started to ride my bike. After two 12 milers, one 15 miler, and 1 20 miler, I got some swelling down low in the middle incision. I want to start running lightly but still have that pain, along with some pain on the side in which i had before the surgery. My symptoms are:

Extreme pain after prolonged exercise in the region directly above the penis.

Swelling in the area above the penis, this goes down shortly after exercise

Some slight pain in the left side of the lower abs by the aductor muscle.

Dr. Cattey did not do the adductor release and I feel i might have needed this as well. He is not too high on this like Dr. Meyers is. Is anyone else gone to see Dr. Cattey and had this procedure done? How long until the swelling was gone and the pain was gone when you exercised?
