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

I can't believe that a doctor would tell you no PT for 6 mos following surgery. I realize the injury is complex, and made even more so by surgery, but to think of practically sitting idle for 6 mos post-surgery sounds counter-productive. And not all cases are the same, surely, so some people get up and go ager 4 weeks, others like you and me take much longer.

Can you offer any other insight or rationale as to why 6 months was the target date for getting into a rehab regimen?

And, I had prolotherapy about 5 months before I had surgery and I have to admit, it really did help with the pain. So, I believe that those very simple glucose injections did indeed mitigate some pain (although it wasn't enough to actual repair the torn muscle).

Talk soon!
Joe
