RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &
sportshernia- I had Dr. Meyer's surgery over 7 months ago and I think you should definitely try walking more. Part of the pain is going to be the scar tissue formation around the site; it is important to "use" your muscles in that area as you normally would so that the scar tissue will break and realign itself along the movement path of the muscle, even if that means just doing normal day to day movements. When I was getting back into more intense activity (I'm a gymnast) and felt pain, Meyers constantly encouraged me to push through it- he seemed very anxious to make sure the scar tissue was getting enough breaking up.

Also, the surgery attachment site is pretty secure; I had a cat jump on me at day 3 PO and was lifting heavy (cafeteria) trays by the beginning of week 2 and still recovered fine. I was paranoid about these things too at the time but don't worry about day to day activities messing things up. Obviously you won't want to be lifting furniture at this point, but after 2 weeks day to day activities shouldn't worry you. I hope that gives you some reassurance-
