SH in SC
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.

==========================================

Den -

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.
