RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &
I had the hernia surgery with Dr. Meyers in 3/05. I had a torn rectus abdominus muscle which he repaired and he did double adductor releases. I was NOT one of the people who was up and running in 12 weeks as he said. I followed the PT protocol to a tee. It just did not seem like the surgery was a success. I went back to see him and was put on a 6 week course of Indocin. Then he said I had osteitis pubis and gave me cortisone shots in my pubic bone. Then he put me on a regimen of Elavil. It was not until August, 2005 that I was able to start running. That was 6 months post-op. Finally I am completely pain free. Was it the surgery that did it or just being off running for almost a year? Who knows.? It was a long, long ordeal.

I often wonder if others went through what I did. But I am healthy now.

I think this is an honest thread. I also believe that a sports hernia/athletic pubalgia is difficult to dx. and that surgery is a crapshoot.
