RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin
Hey Willg, thanks for the update.

I had surgery about a month before you and had the exact same problems and panic reaction.

Even though I am taking my rehab really slow I am feeling better every week. Before the surgery I couldn't even hike or bike without pain but this past weekend I went to Yosemite, biked, hiked a lot and felt great. It will probably be a while before I can play soccer but I can see a lot of progress already.

Like many others here I recommend patience after surgery.

Also this rehab exercises really helped me, though I didn't follow the timeline on it

I will keep posting...

Best wishes for everyone here and thanks for sharing.
