SH in SC
RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &
Den -

The feeling of "puffiness" or as I describe it: "feeling like you have extra stuff in there" went away for me around week 4 post surgery. I think it is more common for those who, like me, did laparoscopic surgery. Friends of mine who had gall bladder surgery report the same feeling. The change also occurred after I forced myself to take 2 days off - there is a lesson there. At 49, I need to keep reminding myself to take time off and rest. Now, more than ever.

Surf - No, I never thought I would be able to do pullups again. Feels good.

Still, after a hard running session on the treadmill, I had some pain in the general groin area that night. Funny, I did not feel it after running outside. I am going to limit my treadmill running in the future. My surgeon did say that some of the SH related pain would take time to go away, while some of the relief was immediate. Overall, still pleased and moving ahead with my life.
