RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &
my opinion, for what it is worth (or not), is to avoid any invasive procedures if you can. adductor tightness and pain may be caused by the nerve that feeds that area, it is also injured in the sports hernia. that might be why the adductor hurts, notice that the surgery/injury is not near the adductor, but is not too far from the nerve path where the injured nerves/tissues are.

my dr who did the surgeries is suggesting injections ( i think cortisone and/or lidocane) onto the points where the tendons insert. i will get them in march if i cannot delete the pain through alternative therapies first.
my first 3 sessions of acupuncture (with a "western" approach to locate and release tight muslces and trigger pts) has been VERY successful and since the first session i have seen massive improvements in both pain reduction, tightness around the scars/injury sites, and mobility.
the sessions can be painful but i think better method than having a tendon sliced in order to reduce tension in the muscle.
there are other modalities that can help as well, at least to be considered and perhaps tried before going under the knife again.
