RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin
it has been 9 months since bilateral surgeries.
i am about 85% better. i still have issues with the si joint, which is the major problem.
i also had lots of scar tissue near the inguinal canal esp left side, and that is being resolved.
again, i went 18+ months before surgery. in that time i went from bad to untolerable pain in the first 5 months, then started to see some relief via some pt, light stretching, acupuncture, and mediation.
my tissues were already waaay tight due to the pain and dysfunction. so when the surgeries happened, and the transverse muscles were tightened a bit more during the surgery (normal), then i had extra tight tissues. it has taken a while to calm then down since the nerves are still irritated, and get more irritated with using the muscles. that tends to happen when the nerves are so irritated for so long- they take longer to resolve to their normal status.
i also had a torn meniscus in my left knee for 15 years before i got it operated on, and the operation was a bit botched- apparently that contributed to the muscle imbalances that affected my hip (+ a labral tear that doesn't warrant surgery).
so, i guess to answer your question, the sh surgery was a success. the other stuff takes longer to get rid of, it takes a very competant pt or a different kind of manual therapist to get you on the right track to resolve the other issues in addition to compensation patterns that the sports hernia may or may not have helped cause...
as of today i can do some hiking and yoga and feel like i could jog but i don;t want to irritate the si joint and strain it more...


hope it helps
