RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin
Hi guys!
Thank you for the replies especially Johnny. Again I have to apologize for my poor English as im from Sweden!
I am so terrible scarred of the surgery because my pain and problems are located like 2 mm from my Penis! Now my pain is so severe that I have problem just managing my job witch I have to because It is my own company and I have no one to cover for me and I have two children to support. So I need to get this fixt but I don’t know how!

Do you guys think that my hernia can have spread down to my perineum because I haven’t got it properly diagnosed and that I have kept on working with my heavy job? I have also gain 35 pounds and it is only fat! Can that affects the spreading of the hernia?
If you start to have a hernia it usully spreds due to collagen-problems and that is what im worried about I don’t want this hernia to spread to my perineum region!

I don’t train so much now… Before this shit I run 100 and 200meter and my PB was 10.78 in 100 which in Sweden is very good so the sports docs really want to help me but
no doctor that I have visit has yet been able to diagnose my condition (I have the same experience as most of you guys: turn your head and cough) until recently when a private doctor said that he thought it was gilmore groin.

I just want this shit to be fixed! I am always depressed and if it wasn’t for my wife and children I wouldn’t wanna go up from the bed in the mornings I cant remember how it was before the pain

So I ask again!
1.Is there any guy who have had this operation that have had experience problem with the penis or the testis? Wasn’t you worried before you went under the knife that something could happen?

2.And do you think that this condition can spread to the perineum structures due to collagen-defects? So you have to place mesh in your perineum area and by doing that hurt your genitalia.

PS.. I must say that this is a great thread with much information!
