RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin
Dog-runner!
First of all as always I must apologize for my English since im from Sweden.
I feel for you! The thing I miss the most with training is the endorphins you get when you train.
I have one question to you and all the other guys here. I have read the whole thread and almost no one seems to be scarred of testicular atrophy when talking about surgery, I have seen statistics that says that with primary herniainguinal surgery the risk of testicular atrophy is 0.5-1% and in recurrent hernia repair is the risk 5-10%(due to scar tissue around the cord and in the area). Do you count that factor in when you think of a new operation? What have your surgeon said? That’s my biggest concern and I am going to have surgery in august(can not do it earlier because my company can not run itself)
Just want to hear what you and everyone else think about this since it is not so much discussed!
