RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin
This thread is amazingly the best source of information on this injury I have found on the internet. Here's my story:
I am an ultimate frisbee player who competes at the elite level. I first experienced groin pain on my left side in october 2006. The pain increased more the harder I pushed my body in a practice or game. Finally, I saw a family physician (dumb idea) who told me to take 6 weeks off to rest my groin pull. I tried exercising, and same pain. Next I went through 5 weeks of physical therapy trying to strengthen the lower abdomen, and still pain. Next I visited and orthopedic doctor who injected my left groin with basically a cortisone shot. That helped the pain for a couple weeks, and it returned again. After 8 months of eating ibuprofen, I finally traveled to duke university for a surgery consultation with Dr. Pappas.
I had bi-lateral surgery on jun 1st with no adductor releases.
I just have a few questions for anyone out there:
Has anyone else had Dr. Pappas for a surgeon? He claimed to train with Dr. Gehret and Meyers and said they were all on the same page.
Also- I recently traveled to Tennesse for the music festival Bonnaroo (bad idea), and experienced tremendous pain from the loud music. Has this happened to anyone else? Is it possible to rip sutures from music?
I'm feeling better now but occasionally have sharp pains on my left side 22 days out of surgery.
I would not wish this injury on my worst enemy.
except for osama
