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

The back and hip pain are really difficult to parsel out in that it could just be referred pain from either site or two individual pathologies. In addition, the hip pain could be referred pain from the mesh site since many nerves travel through the tensor fascia lata (TFL).

I've noticed a slew of trigger points in my and therefore have been doing ITB stretches and lying on a tennis ball over various gluteal muscles (gluteus minimus, TFL, piriformis, hammies)-this has helped. I've also taken two weeks off from any physical activity. Though the adductors are still aching. Did your hip ever feel better after resting for awhile?

Another thing I've considered is that many of my various aches and pains could relate to compensatory and protective muscle tightening in response to stress and pain post-surgery.

For me anyway, the take home message is to wait and see. My surgeon said that at 10 weeks I'm still in the normal range for diffuse pain upon exertion. I just have to stop reading academic journal articles that report recovery 4-weeks post-surgery. Thanks for your input. Hope your recovery is going well.

PS. Johnny-thanks for all your information on both websites, it's been a tremendous help.
