Recovery path
frengers --

I'm 59 yrs-old, was playing basketball until getting sports hernia in February. I'm trying to heal without surgery, but not really making much progress. I'm considering going to Dr. UM. Like you I'm wary of nsaids, so I've taken nothing except a multivitamin.

Last week for 2 days I decided to start sitting up normally when arising from bed (using my abdominals like a normal person), but those two days led to a relapse that I'm only now recovering from.

I'm usually sore for about 10 or 15 steps after getting out of my car.

Frengers, what sport were you playing? Did you have single side surgery or bilateral? How active have you been able to be post-surgery? Were you able to exercise? What are your main symptoms now?

Thanks very much.
