RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin
Trust your surgeon implicitly - or don't let him/her cut ya (my prior posts). The adductor release is part of William's 'revision'. Trust him, go with someone else or do nothing...

I will say this Eric - watch the kicking routines. I think (coupled with the rest of my insane athletic lifestyle) competition level 360 degree cresent kicks didn't do my hips much good. And if you look at Bill Wallace or Chuck Norris now - both artificial hips. Dancers, martial artists - tennis players - all great candidates for hip debility whether AP or labrial tears or sacral/lower lumbar complaint (just be patient on that; it will fade as compartment firms)...

And on the hip tears vs. AP debate - AP surgery is *much* less invasive; it is not joint surgery. Going into the joint - that's the real deal. Many athletic doc's now advocate waiting out/working around hip tears (if you can: look at Agassi; back/hip whatever - no surgery)...
