Whats up everybody? I've posted on here before - I've had a laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair and then a Pelvic Floor Repair (sports hernia surgery) over the course of the last 17 months. Dr. Litwin of Umass, who worked with Dr. Meyers did my pelvic floor repair back in febuary.
I still am in just as much if not more pain now than I was before the surgeries so I made an appointment to see Dr. Meyers who based on my research is the best in the US. He was very cool & also very knowledgeable. I felt comfortable right off the bat.
What I liked about him is that he was able to find out what was wrong with me after all this time! Before we jumped into exploratory surgery, he thought I should get an MRI on my hip first. Thank God he did, because he found a large labral hip tear!
I'm not hyped about having to get that fixed, but my point is that Dr. Meyers found out what was wrong with me & was VERY thorough. If anyone has doubts about his interests, please do not because he is one of the few doctors who want to help you get better! I experienced this first-hand.
A lot of people including myself are very skeptical of the "sports hernia" surgery. I think there are some doctors cashing in on this, but Meyers is not quick to operate unless he knows he can help.
Like I said, I'm pissed I have to get hip surgery, but I do feel very relieved to finally get a proper diagnosis after all this time. If you are in the US, I would highly recommend going to see Dr. Meyers.
Feel free to email me if you have any questions about anything, I know how agonizing this shit is.
