RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &
Mike in Denver,

Thanks for your feedback on common denominators. It looks like the one possibly in common is the butt/pelvic tilt maybe.

Because most of your pain is in the lower abdomen only, and no groin pain, nor pain in backs of legs (more adductors), I wonder if you might have an inguinal hernia instead? If I had to have one or the other, it seems to me an inguinal hernia is much better than a sports hernia. Usually much more feasible to fix 100%, I think.

Dr. Muschaweck will be able to tell you, I expect.

Den,

You said it right when you said emotional roller coaster. God, day before yesterday I thought to myself, "I'm actually starting to get a little bit better. I'll be able to avoid surgery if I'm patient."
Then yesterday, Boom, that sickening feeling of pain shooting in the lower left abdomen. The roller coaster never stops. Up, down, up, down, up, down...
I've only been on the roller coaster about 4 months now, Den. I don't know how you've been able to handle it since all the way back to September 2007.

Den, to rehab away your lower abdomen pain, which exercise seemed to be most effective for you (your early times, pre-surgery)?
