RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &
I thought I'ds chime in again. I had AP and after two years of searching found Meyeres who diagnosed and repaired my AP. He did the repair and an addcutor release on my left side. I am now 2.5 years out and am totally healed. It took me about 6 months to get to about 80-90% and then another 6 months to get back to 100%. I struggled the first 4 or 5 months though mentally. I would start to make gains and then get some pain but in retrospect the pain was likely scar tissue tearing and repairing. I now still feel adducutor tightness and occasional abdominal tightness but it is never really painful, just tight. I could probably be much better about stretching and strengthening (and likely would see that tightness go away)but I am pretty much back to distance running, biking and occasional b-ball. I can do everything i was able to before the surgery. After I hurt myself I was crippled and lost my ability to do much running at all without pain and I couldn't do power stuff like b-ball at all unless I wanted to be sidelined for several days.

So I guess the take home message is stick to gradual return to activity the surgery and realize that it will take a year or so until you are back at it full speed. You will ahve bout of pain in the surgical area but don't freak. The first 6 months were really hard and the last 6 months or recovery were MUCH better. Anything new will cause minor soreness but that is part ot rehab.

Good luck all. I am very pleased with Meyers.
