RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &
Things are great. I had the surgery on April 26th. It's like a miracle to be without that pain in my groin. I just got done rehab. The only thing a little sore is the inner thigh with the adductor release. I am taking the running slowly. That is the key. Meyers has a very specific rehab protocol he gives you. Meyers does not use the mesh. Your doc should have given you a rehab protocol. I feel like a new person.
I copied some of his protocol.
