RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin
Sportshernia,

Here's the scoop in regards to surgery with Meyers.

1. Initial consultation, he reviews your MRI's, performs some physical tests to gauge motion as related to pain, then recommends the correct path (surgery or therapy etc)
2. Next day you come back for the surgery...they tag you, prep you, you wait and wait and then the surgery is performed. You wake in pain and they immediately give you some morphine derivitive...stay through the night, they check on you like every half hour...not conducive to sleeping even though you want to.
3. Next morning, you arise, slowly, painfully...and you can leave. (You should leave b/c insurance will charge you an inordinate amount of money to stay longer).
4. I took a cab to the airport and flew home. In hindsight, I would rather have stayed with a friend for 2 days to relax into my body, then leave. It was pretty hard to maneuver through the airport in that much pain. Percoset helps, but it's temporary.

Let me know what else you'd like to know about recovery.

Thanks,
joe
