RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin
xrunner, you are exactly right, the doctor I saw before my SH surgeon focused only on the canal and not on my abdomen at all. He thought I had a hernia... which I didn't have at all....
I am at 12/ 13 weeks post op (w/ Dr. Meyers). I still get agitation in the area and minor pain (it's different than it was pre-surgery, though), but with anti-inflammatories and consistent training, it gets much better (I notice that it gets tight when I take a couple of days off). I have all of my gymnastics back (including my tumbling passes with extremely high amounts of twisting) that I was doing pre-surgery and additional strength (though not quite 100% yet) that I haven't had since before my injury!
