RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin
3 months post-op and Johnny (and everyone),
It's good to be in the company of non-immediate success stories. I do hope we rebound and get back to our respective sports.
I do think Dr. Meyers is extremely talented, but most of his surgeries compromise the athletic (paid) community, so they get the best possible treatment post-surgery. I know that has something to do with the protocol he hands out...but the fact is there is a more real-life scenario that I think he may not have considered. And Dr. um and others too...
What if you sit at a desk all day?
What if you just can't get to PT 3-4x per week?
What if you have a nerve issue that needs to be addressed?
A lot of cases, I'm sure, are quite cut and dry. Like those who feel pain, get diagnosed and have the surgery in quick order.
The lingering injured is a study unto itself that I think should be addressed.
How tough this is! And the mental impact of being sidelined for such prolonged periods of time, while attacking the issue from all angles with no results...we just have to really believe we'll get back, let the power of our minds heal us. I really think taping in to the most powerful healer (ourselves) is our next step. I can give more later on this via my chiropractor, who in her "rabbit hole" has helped many people heal themselves. It's fascinating and sustaining my hope that I will again emulate Roger Federer and win our backyard Wimbledon.
