RE: Doctor abbreviations
Meyers rate of subsequent surgery is extremely small. i think in one of his papers it is less than 1%.

I think the cause of it is stronger lower body torsion and not as strong core. There have been 2 protocols that I know of that are designed to prevent this.

Who gives a shit what most doctors say. Most doctors are not specialists. I was in the medical profession and after being in it there are many docs i would not bring my dog to.
I went to some good docs....even the head of orthopedics at a large hospital who did not even know what it was? Does that mean it does not exist? The most competent muscle guy i ever met who treats the NY Yankees in the tampa area told me i would not be able to walk if i had it. So who gives a shit? I certainly don't. A dozen docs were in above their head. That is why people travel the world to see Meyers. When i was there of the 16 people getting cut....12 of us traveled to see him. To me that speaks volumes.

Also the lack of insurance coverage does not minimize the need for repair of this injury. Also, when you say sports hernia I know that is not what Meyers talks about.

He speaks of RA detachment and I do not care who you are....it ain't fixing itself. You can show me a million examples....Mayo Clinic stuff and so on.

It is not fixing itself.

What do you think of Josh Hamilton recovering from open surgery for a detached RA and returning to play MLB at 4 weeks. This includes stealing bases and taking 100's of swings a day.

Do you think that was high risk? How about his 2nd baseman Ian Kinsler who had it last year and is having a great season?

I know i will never put myself in position to suffer this again. Meyers thinks I had a small tear for 20 years due to the scarring and 4.5 years ago it detached. I had always had testicle and groin pain on and off for 20 years....

I lifted weights today...circuit training...did my FMS stuff which is challenging...walked 5.5 miles and did 45 minutes on the elliptical w/ 20 of them using arms too.

I return to work monday after 3 years so i will not workout like that. I was a competitive boxer and am used to being in tip top shape. I am losing weight and will not stop until my core is bullet-proof.
