RE: 7 Weeks Post Op
SH in SC,
I don't think most of us we'll ever be 100% again. Even if we are physically, there is still a mental aspect to it. But the good news is that you are doing a lot of stuff you couldn't do with the injury.
Who did your surgery? Keep us posted... I'm interested in your progress with the mesh repair.
My surgeon was Dr. Baird in the Charleston, SC area. Very well respected. As I said in an earlier post, he repaired a friend of mine's SH several years earlier, and he was a professional soccer player. Worked well for him and I hope it is working well for me. He suggested, and I accepted, a bilateral repair even though mine was on the right side. Said he ended up fixing the other side of a high percentage of his patients down the road anyway. I thought about going to Hoadley, but after the recommendation of my friend, I decided to stay local. His recovery was flawless. Mine is very good, though I still get sore and "tight."
My "experimentation" with regular days off - walking only - seems to work and eases inflammation. (see article at cbass.com/sitting.htm). Felt great today after doing just that the day before. Today - back at tennis and tomorrow - back to the gym.
