RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin

I didn't have any nerve ablation done when I had my surgery with UM in Munich but I, too, am having the burning and pain sensation along the crease. I recently contacted her and she wants me to travel back to Germany to have a special 3D multi-slice spiral CT scan done to see what is going on. Unfortunately, a trip back to Germany just for some tests is out of the question - mainly for financial reasons (I'm sure people can relate since a lot of us here do the Munich trip and procedure using cash out of pocket).

I will tell you it has been hell trying to get follow-up care here in the US because most doctors don't want to deal with you once it is revealed that you had surgery out of the country - usually you have to fess up anyways as doctors' first line of defense is, "you need to go back to the surgeon that operated on you and see him." Simply trying to get a doctor to order this test here in the States is proving difficult. So, I muddle along with my mind in overdrive wondering what my problem is. To be honest, my fears are mounting as I hope it is not a recurrence or a new herniation.

If you live in Canada, by chance, you should have Shouldice take a look at you to see if they can detect anything.
