Sport's Hernia
Hi;

After reading a whole lot of these posts I am reporting that I will be going to see a surgeon tomorrow (Monday), Dr. David Park who is one of many surgeons in a group, North Atlanta Surgical Associates. I, like many of you have been experiencing pain in my groin area when running. I am an avid runner who has completed 14 marathons to date and planning to run my 15th in November (NYC Marathon).

My local internist checked me out and noticed a tear in my inguinal canal and has told me that I have the sportsman hernia. Just curious, am I being realistic by still planning to run the NYC Marathon in November after this surgery which I am hoping to take place this week or next week?

Any help is greatly appreciated. I have been running with this "groin" pain for the past month or so and now it has become unbearable to run with it.

Thanks,
marathonerlj
