I would also describe most of my symptoms over the 20 months before surgery as discomfort. If I sufficiently limited my activities-no pain at all. I could usually bike without any problem unless I really pounded the hills. But running, kayaking, even walking several miles a few days in a row would imflame things, and I'd get pain for about 4-5 days. For me the issue was only partly the pain, but also the uncertainty every time I did something, wondering if I was "fraying" that weakened connection even more. There was definitely a weakness in my lower abdomen that I could feel whenever I lifted something, raked leaves, or shoveled snow.

But-amazingly, after surgery, long before the pain was gone, the weakness had left. I also was able to squeeze my knees together within a few days of the surgery without the usual discomfort. Bottom line-my life is better.
