RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &
I'm still working on posting my op report - the hospital is mailing it to me so should have it up here in the next week or so.
Update on recovery: I'm now at the 12 week mark. Physio is good - slow, but I'm starting to get a lot more comfortable with daily activities, walking, etc., and my right leg is not as noticeably skinny. Strength and range of motion are both increasing steadily. As I've mentioned before, my rehab protocol has been a lot more conservative than what some others have been posting, but my injury was also quite severe (I was NOT still able to run or participate in any sports as some others seem to have been) and strength/mobility quite deteriorated by the time I was referred to surgery (the 6 month wait between that time and the actual procedure didn't help ... I guess the government footing the bill makes up for the loooong wait list). My exercises so far include some basic core stability stuff, adductor squeezes with pillow between knees, wall squats. And of course gentle stretching. I've been told to expect to be in PT at least till the 6 month mark.
I should add that follow-up with the surgeon has been remarkably thorough - I've had follow up visits at 1, 5, and 11 weeks, and am due back at 18 weeks, 24 weeks, 9 months, and 1 year.
