RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin
Thank you all for the great and not so great updates. I hope you are all getting a good personalized treatment and / or recovery program. If anyone has insights for my condition or impending Dr. Meyers exam I would love to hear them. Thanks.

I have made an appointment with Dr. Myers in two weeks . Surgery the next day. Day in the hospital. Plane ride (5 Hr.s) back home to Ca.

Having a pelvic MRI this Tuesday. I hope to get a call from him before I see him 7-22-07.

I had SH sugery 11-05 on my right side. This was after 13 dr.s and 13 months undiagnosed. The surgeon found two tears. I remember tearing twice. Alas, I never got back to where I was, probably 60%. My mistake was not getting a PT program to rebalance my core muscles, etc.

Sitting, driving, deep stretching, pitching really hurt. Spreading my legs while sitting on the surfboard really showed my imbalance and atrophied muscles. In addition I had MRI/died of my both hips showing labrum tears with the start of FAImpingement and mild arthritis.

Last month I was was diagnosed with labral tears (by UCLA sports medicine) and see him again in 3 months and go to PT. Well PT was an eyeopener. Hard to touch my knees together sitting strait up. Alot of year of bad posture and weekend hard sports set me up for a bad recovery from the groin tear repair.

So now I am still feeling softtissue damage for Dr. Meyer examination. In addition, I will have to get the inflamation down on my hip labrums (on fourth of july i went body surfing and even though i told myself to not move my legs I awoke to the last three days of both sided, pelvic pain. Pain Located lower than my scrotum. It really hurts driving. So I think this is the labrum tear area. My Dr. told me bilateral, posterior labrum tearing. So I am not sure that the source of my high pain is sh , labrum or bio mechanic worn out tendons , etc....???? He refused to look back into softtissue (AP or sh) which I feel is still warranted repaired side and now from my left side.

Thank you all for the great INFO. Thanks for feedback/ precations for Dr. Meyers or with my condition? Will update soon, Mike
