RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &
hey guys
thanks for the replies. not too sure about my knee, i think that there are other issues causing the valgus problems that i have. my knee sometimes feels like it is dislocated or something. all i have to do is grab my ankle and pull it to my butt like i am stretching my quad and POP! it seems to be back in place. an mri tomorrow.

going to germany, dr muschaweck will tell you that you can lift up to 44 pounds the day of surgery. but i chose not to, as you probably will not want to as well just due to the postop pains. still satisfied with the surgery, afterall, it did have to be done. that is why i went to the best. i am still recovering but slowly. if you didn't have musculoskeletal issues/imbalances beforehand due to lack of diagnosis or whatever else, then my guess is you will be back in normal action in 5 weeks or less. no joke. she fixes athletes and tends to get them back on the field again in 3 weeks.
munich is very cool. make the best if it and be sure to eat all that great food and beer. if you want you can email me and i can give you suggestions where to eat and drink.
good luck with the surgery, you are making the right move.

btw, the pain off my pubic bone is basically gone. they do happen after some exercise but are decreasing in both severity, duration, and overall incidence. the pains are due most likely to the scar tissue. you will have very large scar tissue lumps in your pelvis/abdomen. i get it worked on via physical therapy, and it has been helping immensely.
i have been able to swim for an hour 3 days a week, and am back to hiking. light yoga as well. the goal is to be kayaking in whitewater again, even though that is how i obtained the hernias in the first place. but i imagine that i will be paddling again in march with no real fears of reinjury. muschaweck will tell you that you can do situps in one week. i am just starting to be able to do crunches as of last week. but i also think that the lack of quick progress is partly mental due to the pains i went through for so long before i was even diagnosed.

if you are already in decent shape then you will make out great.
