RunDaddy, I just had my consultation with Dr. Meyers yesterday (scheduled for 3:45 and sat around until 7:45 I might add!). However, I have confidence that I'm in good hands.

I'm replying to you because your case seems to be similar to mine. No adductor release needed, been going on only for a short number of months, very fit otherwise, etc.

It seems like you're grateful you had the surgery. Any further improvement in the week since you made this post?

I'm 41 and previous to the injury/condition/whatever I was extremely active (ice hockey, football, relatively intense training, very taxing and twisting repetitive movements). My biggest question is whether I will be able to return (at any time) to what I did before. Dr. Meyers says ninety something percent yes. I'm just wondering about your further experience.


Will, sorry I missed this post. I'm in Tunisia at the moment. On the surgery, bottom line is I feel great. Only running about 35 mpw (11 weeks out), but have no pain. It gets a little sore if I do a hard swim. And if I do leg raises or sit ups, it starts to bother after a bit. But nothing serious, and it's getting better each week.

Good luck.
