RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &
Best of luck with your surgery. Your case seems much worse than mine.

Here's my question for this thread. Is it possible to recover from a very mild case of sports hernia?

I have been rock climbing a lot over the past few years and was doing a lot of that at a higher level than I was used to(for me 5.9) this past August in the Grand Tetons. When I got home from the two-weeks vacation, I noticed a mild burning pain in my groin while doing scissor kicks in pilates class. I noticed the same mild pain sometimes when rock climbing, like when twisting to press my hips up against an overhanging rock wall. But there's no pain when I do vertical climbing.

I've stopped the pilates and the climbing to rest the groin. And I rarely notice the pain in my daily activities. So is it possible that my condition will eventually heal on its own?. Or will I have to have the surgery?
