RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &
i am about 6 months post op and still have pains. i am about 50-70% better. i saw drs muschaweck in nyc about 2 weeks ago. the pain is due to nerve irritation from the injury since i had it for waaaay too long before diagnosis. the body/nerves are used to the pain signals, and left a footprint of pain signals that is not going away. this apparently can happen when one has AP for so long. i am being prescribed injections in the nerves to calm them down so i can continue to gain strength.

oz, did you lose 15 pounds before the surgery? i lost 27 during my time of agony and searching for a diagnosis. i think that the resulting atrophy has made it more difficult to recouperate they way i wish i could.

btw, if you are running and lifting weights, i doubt that you have a sports hernia. from what i understand (i am not a doc but have been through the ap myself and have been studying it on my own time for about 2 years now), the AP gets worse over time once it begins. activity will make it worse. i went from immediate pain upon my sports accident to constant agony within 3 months. lifting one pound was not an option as the pain was severe when trying to do so.

as oz said, i agree that the muschawecks are genuine people. she is top notch. she really knows her stuff. anyone who meets with her would agree. and the care over there is far beyond anything i have recieved over here, and i have had 7 surgeries along with countless other procedures, casts, etc...
