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

I didn't need an adductor release. This was determined by my describing my symptoms and by his examination. I do know that this does increase the healing time/complications.

For me, the travelling was a 2.5 hour car drive. Armed with Percoset (which had its own horrific constipation side effect for me which was enough to make me quit after one day of using it), it was a matter of settling myself into the right position in a car seat and then riding along was fine.

I would think that an airline seat would be a fair bit worse but ultimately bearable if it had to be done. There were other guys in surgery the day I was there (he did over 10 that day in all) that were flying home as far away as Phoenix so it's not like it's not done.

If it were me, however, I would definitely opt for First Class. Given the money you're going to spend on the surgery, whether covered or not, another $500-800 for upgrading the one way portion of your ticket will be worth it.

Good luck and I will also continue to post occasionally until I am either cured or until I judge it a failure.
