Surf,

Not ignoring your questions brother.. Just Mike keeps beating me to the punch ;)

I had tears on both sides, though the left was worse. Dr. UM will only operate on what is causing you pain. She said lot of people show up w/ bi-lat tears, have one side operated on and never need surgery on the other side. Others develope symptoms on both sides. Its just the crazy nature of this injury. As stated by another poster, just because you have symptoms on both sides doesn't mean you will require bi-lat surgery. SH pain is primarily caused by nerve irritation which can cause pain in the legs, groin, abs and even your back. A tear on one side can def create a sense of pain on the other side. At least this is the way it was explained to me.

Den,

I too have puffiness around my incision site. My guess is it will go away with time. I'll continue to take the antiinflammatories and see what shakes in the next few weeks.
