Groin Injury Sufferers: how is everyone doing?
My pain lately has seemed to switch sides of the groin. It's still sore and irritated on both sides, but lately when I've run the majority of the pain has been on my right side, whereas the injury began on the left side and was exclusively on the left side for the first 2 or 3 months. What does this mean? Anybody?
I went to a sports med. doctor and he mentioned sports hernia, said it was a controversial subject and that it was best to take a lot of time and try everything else out first. The weird thing was that when I went my pain was pretty subdued, so I had a hard time describing. It was a deep soreness, but everything he made me do and everything he pressed triggered no serious pain. BUt now, a couple days later, I tried to play frisbee and it is hurting me for sure. Also got an MRI but I haven't heard the results yet.
I have a question about CROSSTRAINING with groin injuries and/or sports hernias. Those of you who have been diagnosed with sports hernia or suspect you might have this, have you been able to cross train? If so, what have you done? Meyers told me on the phone that it was okay to keep cross training if you had one, that it wouldn't really make it worse.
This sucks so bad. It's winter now and I don't want to bike anymore. I want to be able to run and play running-dependent sports.
Good luck everyone.
