Meyers has lost it
RE: Had sports hernia surgery, 4 years later trouble again
I am a collegiate distance runner. I have been dealing with groin and lower ab pain since March of 2015. I was warned by multiple doctors to not see Meyers as they had sent patients to him in the past few years who have had some fairly bad experiences with Meyers. However, from the research I had done, it seemed like Meyers was one of the few doctors who had a good understanding of core muscle injuries, and I was tired of dealing with doctors who pretended they knew what they were talking about. So I decided to see Meyers in December of 2016. I had a bilateral pelvic floor repair and a left adductor repair in February of 2017. Wasn't an easy return to running. In the summer of 2017, I had pain on my right side--the side that wasn't painful before the surgery. Went back to Meyers in July, and had another surgery to remove what he thought was a stitch rubbing up against a nerve. Eventually, I was able to train that summer and return to compete in the fall of 2017. After the cross country season had ended, pain in my groin on my left side started slowly coming back. Now the pain has returned full force–pretty much the same level that it has been at its worst before the surgery. Don't trust Meyers at this point. He is losing his touch. When you say that he thinks you have a tear in your hip, are you referring to a labral tear? If so, there are plenty of doctors who are extremely qualified to repair labral tears. I wouldn't trust Meyers with another surgery. Good luck.
