RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin
I'll know in about six weeks. I've done just that, and Meyers told me that it is not necessarily true that SH never heals. He put me on a strong anti-inflamatory, and gave me an excersise program. I'm up to four miles every other day, and filling in with biking. My thought is that maybe the meds have let me finally stregnthen stuff around the attachment, because my core is beginning to feel stronger. I've given up soccer for the time being, but a few months ago could not walk three miles, run two, or do even two sit-ups without paying a price for a few days. That was after seven weeks completely off everything except a bit of walking. Still no sit-ups, doing just a few crunches with my upper abdomen. It seems like my progression is similar to those who had the full-blown surgery, after their month of rest. I'll be testing it heavily the next three weeks though, as I'm a contractor and we just started framing a house. Not sure I could return to athletics any time soon without surgery, but my work makes me somewhat like an athlete in that I don't have total control over how much I use my body.
