RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin
your english is good, even better than me on some days!
i had tears in the posterior inguinal canal, and probably the external oblique aponeurosis, but we will never know for sure with the oblique because my insurance would not approve of an mri to show it!
the ilioinguinal nerve shoots right down to the top of the scrotum and near the root of the penis. perhaps that is why it hurts there. this nerve gets ppainful often with hernias. dr um said that that nerve was/is still irritated on me, entrapped in scar tissue along its path.
she does not use mesh unless she thinks it is necessary, but uses it when needed. she has invented a surgery where mesh is not needed. note that dr meyers in philly, the "other big dog" of this sugery also doesn't use mesh.
no sexual problems due to the surgery that i know of.
keep in mind that i am not a doctor so anything i am suggested is based on educated guess and experience as a patient. i wouldn't want to steer you in a wrong direction. but dr um has seen it all in that area of the body and you would greatly benefit from a visit with her.
