RE: 5 weeks after inguinal surgery

"One thing I will reiterate to those who think they have it:

Go to a doctor. The imbalances that my body contorted its way into are more difficult to unwind than the surgery.
My Pubalgia is like 97% healed. Have not had an inkling of anything the past 3 days.....and i am going hardcore now."

Albert, I agree. Whether or not someone is contemplating surgery or not, they need to educate themselves about the injury and rehab. Because I waited so long to deal with this, I have so many deficiencies now. I am getting stronger heading into week 11. I've been lifting weights which I haven't been able to do in almost two years. I've been able to do some limited jogging and jump rope. But I feel like if I dealt with this properly two years ago right when it happened -- surgery or no surgery -- it would have been much easier. You just can't underestimate the toll that compensatory problems will take. All of my muscles on my injury side are locked up, ...psoas, glutes, hamstrings. And my adductors are strained. My foot on the non-injured side is bothersome when I walk.

The good news is that I don't have pain... I am just dealing with what I hope are just tightness, aches and adjusting.

So, surgery or not, find rehab exercises that are proven to work. I still believe people can get better without surgery, but I think there is a very short window. That means recognize it soon -- and get a plan.
