RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin
sher-

like i said it's impossible to say, but my gut feeling (yes, this is a bad play on words) is that i would not be where i am now, which is very close to full recovery, had i had not gone to munich to have surgery.

once you decide to have surgery it is definitely a tough decision about who to have it with. you now have the same amount of info if not more than most people who make the decision, so all you can do is trust your instincts and commit. for me the decision was made easier by the factors that 1. i did not want the abductor release and 2. i really couldn't afford surgery with meyers anyway.

if you are convinced you have a sports hernia, and you've had it for two years and it hasn't gone away, you're right, you need surgery, and the sooner the better. good luck with your decision.
