RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &
Hey, just want to say that I was diagnosed with Sports Hernia. I totally understand your pain and frustration. After various cortisone shots to releive pain,an MRI, an X-Ray, pelvic rehab techniques, and doctor visits with negative results, I finally found an expert in the hernia field. He immediately dignosed me with Sports Hernia. He informed me that doctors never find this type of hernia. For the simple reason, NO BULGE. I had no bulge. He is starting to see this in athletes ranging from 25 - 37...so, there is light on the other side of the tunnel. Find specialist in hernia and that has done surgery for Sports Hernia. It is an "in and out" surgery. I had surgery on 10/15/09 and am recovering.
I will advise how long it will take and if pain persists after a 4 week period. I will see him again for a follow-up on 10/29/09...he then will advise whether I can begin rehab.
