RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin
lt, you rock.
thanks for the email as well, that really clears things up a bit and makes me feel as if i am on the right track with my healing. i guess i need more time.
last week i was swimming laps with no problems. then i went in my kayak and 3 hours later was in agony. still in good pain but has subsided with attempting to mush out trigger pts since the psoas are prolly tight as hell. i know they are tight as hell or my pelvis would nothave been so twisted.
i will work on not stretching that psoas. what you and a few others said makes good sense. my back is sore as can be after an 11 hour drive three days ago, just after my kayaking bit.

you have been a great help to all of those following this post, lots of solid info coming from your end.
my alien is still there but not as painful as it was pre op. your comment about my vienna alien just provided good releif.

i was wondering about the ct scan i had because i had it only 3 weeks after the initial injury, but the pain gradually increased as it does with a sh, and 2 months later i was screwed! wondered if i tore up more stuff by trying to get by thinking all i did was strain muscles, which never seemed to keep me from doing stupid things before. after my ct scan, a friend who is a chiro told me that the machine that scanned me was totally archaic and that i went to the wrong testing facility. so naturally i was worried that they missed something in the scan. not to mention the large # of docs that diagnosed me as having everything from epididymitis to mercury poisoning to severe food allergies causing the pains. would make anyone a bit anxious about their condition, no?

this thread got me to the point i am at today. seems like with this injury, unless you are a monitored athlete, have knowledge of sports med, or happen to have a really good doc, then you are on your own to solve the puzzle and get fixed up good.

gettin there, just looks like no puck this winter. could be worse.
