RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &
i had successful s.h. surgery performed by myers 17 mos ago. 2 months later, upon return to the the shortest, slowest and gentlest jogging imaginable, i tore meniscus in both knees- orthopod feels it was because the adductor release had a "destablizing" effect on the knees, since the adductor muscle attaches below the knee and does help control deceleration during the support phase of the stride.

so i had cartilage tears repaired. lost 20% of menial meniscus on both sides. 1 year later, and i still cannot get over the pain in my knees well enough to train. 20-30 mins 3-4 times per week is all i can take, down from 90-110/week prior to my initial surgery. no amount of strenthening, therapy, cross training or cortizone has made a difference.

i'm not writing to ask for advice because i don't believe anyone here can help me. i am just wondering if i am the only one who has had knee problems following the surgery.
