RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin
For those of you concerned about how much to walk after Meyer's surgery, I can related my own experience (I had bilateral PF repair in Oct. 2007). The first few days do suck, I walked as much as I could/ needed to but quickly found that I was extremely more tired than usual (which makes sense). I remember getting up out of bed was nearly impossible (since I couldn't sit up at al) and that I was walking with little shuffle steps for awhile. My whole pace of life slowed down but that's just how it goes. I also had sharp pain at the incision site a couple of times- namely, when I laughed too hard (it was painful to laugh hard at 2 weeks PO) and once when a cat jumped on me while laying down and I contracted my stomach out of reflex. That was very painful since it happened like day 2 PO but I am happy to say that I recovered relatively quickly from the surgery (back to full sports activity by week 8) and still feel good at over 6 months PO....
