went to germany
post operation report
Hello to all..I am sorry for taking so long to update for those who are waiting for a response...

First, let me say that the care i recieved in germany was
top notch. It took the doctors 5 minutes to figure out i had a sports hernia. She even said i have the beginning of one on my right side! However she said that i should not have any problems with it for now. Anyway i had the operation done on my left side on thursday oct 26 at 8 am.
I was the first of 5 sports hernia operations that day!

I was able to walk around the next day of the surgery with
some pain and over the weeks the pain has slowely decreased.
There is no longer any permanent pain in my testicles.But there is pain radiating fron a lump of swollen tisssue right along my inguinal canal. They tell you it will take about 6 weeks for the swollen tissue to heal into scar tissue.( I am on day 24.) they also say you are cleared to return to your sport in 14 days post op. I believe that this is only possible if you are in very good shape to begin with.I am not in good shape right now due to 6 months of not working out. I am a bodybuilder and i do not believe i can lift weights right now without hurting myself. I have not tried to test myself too much but i can walk up and down steps with only a little pain.

I think i need a little more time to tell if the surgery is a complete succces. My guess is 6 weeks post op and i will try to lift very light wieghts.

I will start riding a bike in a few days and will report how that makes me feel.

If anyone has questions feel free to ask.

Good luck to everyone
