RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &
i'd say start with a sports medicine doctor in your area. if you aren't satisfied make an appointment with either meyers in philly or dr. muschaweck in munich.
i went to dr. muschaweck just over a month ago. i paid out of pocket - she runs a private clinic and does not accept insurance. if you have insurance and are worried about the cost (muschaweck charges appx. US$6000 per side) i would go see meyers. they seem to be the two big players in sports hernia surgery, you will be in good hands either way.
i still have slight discomfort on my left side but it is definitely better than before and i'm hoping a few more weeks of rest will bring full recovery. dr. muschaweck is extremely professional and her walls are lined with pics of famous sports athletes who she has treated. she puts you under, but not with anaesthesia (she uses local anaesthesia). it's like you are semi-conscious but can't really feel anything.
best of luck.
