RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin
Hi again, i went to Dr. Myers last summer complaining of possible SH on my opposite side which was repaired 2years earlier. Myers along with head of UCLA sports medicine diagnosed labrum tear. Myers said that when a pelvic floor is permanetly sutured back in place it tightens the area which leads in my case to the opposite side hip bone pointing into the acetabulm socket - creating the labrum tear. I caused mine surfing a year and a half ago. When I sat on my surfboard, in between waves, one has to straddle the board with legs outstretched. I noticed this opposite side pain but learned later about the labrum tear. Myers was very interested in this phenonenom but i declined his philladelphia treatment and came back to CA. I was in line to get a new arthroscopic hip tear procedure where they Remove your femur from the hip socket. trim the tear and shave the bone end that goes into it. All this is very likely due to the new pelvic tightness of the SH repair side. Dr. Guanche will be my Dr. for this procedure next month.

Unfortunately I have been saddled with a knee lesion on my lower femur which was diagnosed as either necrotic or osteochrondritis desicans, depending on who you talk to. This was caused most likely from a bike accident 10 years ago.

So I have a couple procedures coming up. My hernia side still is very tight but the other side has the FAI/ labrum tear that manifests in the lower abdomen a little like the inguinal SH pain site , some 3 years ago.

So my advice get a died hip MRI to help diagnose labrum tears post SH repair.

HAppy healing! Hey maybe this year? 2008 ?
