RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &
To similar situation,
I'm actually recovering pretty well. I had bilateral surgery with both adductors released. They said I was torn up more than most. But, I'm up to 4 miles on my runs, and actually could go further if all my other muscles didn't ache so much. I have some adductor pain, but not so much when I run. I notice it more if I get up from kneeling, or sometimes when I strain to get a shoe on, mostly on the one side that I had an "incident" with at day 17. (A sprinkler came on unexpectedly and I instinctively tried to outrun it. I had a distinct tearing sensation in the adductor area on one side.) I have just started to target the adductors with some strenghtening using a theraband. We'll see how that goes-so far it seems to make it worse in the short term.
I still feel discomfort at the wound sites, but not really pain. The only other real pain I experience is straight up from the bone at the very bottom of my groin. I notice it most when turning backwards and forwards while running.

Overall, though, I am right now already better than I was before surgery. I can run, do some crunches,and generally feel stronger than I have in two years.
