RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &
oh
what i didn't mention was the confidence of a couple of other docs i saw over here who wanted to give me nerve block injections, another wanted to do hip surgery, another wanted to put me on antibiotics for whatever in case of an infection, etc...lots of guessing going on, especially when each would see me for a total of about 5 minutes without even looking at the patient history.
they could not put 2 and 2 together- sports accident with immediate groin pain = injury. not one of them until dr muschaweck. i knew what had happened- i felt the tears occur. it is a shame that some docs refuse to listen to a patient'm suggestion. i had learned about the sports hernia injury about 1 week after i had mine, and spent the next 18 months going from doc to doc asking about the hernia, and each was so self-confident in their assessment that they would not even referr me to a different doc who would acknowledge soft tissue damage.
probably sounds familiar. just remember that not all doctors know what they are talking about when they step out of their tunnel vision of their speciality.
dr msuchaweck is a hernia specialist, and a specialist in the sportsmans groin injury.
