Sports Hernia

Ok...so I was scheduled for surgery tomorrow (Friday) for endometriosis, but then my dad found an article in the newspaper about sports hernias.  Since I play ice hockey at least three times a week, I asked the doctor about a possibility of this at the pre-op appointment.  He hadn't thought of that, so I was sent to another doctor, who couldn't feel anything, but the article said that a sports hernia, which I guess is a tear in the ligament or muscle in the lower abdomen/groin area, doesn't show a bulge.  The doctor insisted that an MRI wouldn't show anything, so he didn't want me to have one.  I am now on Lyrica and Celebrex, and my surgery was postponed indefinitely to see if my pain is from the sports hernia.  I was wondering if anyone knew any more about sports hernias and what type of doctor I should see to have it checked out, and also what these medications will do to help.  Will they be able to tell if I have a sports hernia if these medications do or do not help?

Hello, I'm not sure you have found any answers but I have been to 3 doctors who just checked for a regular hernia and said they can't do anything for me since they can't find anything. I have mentioned a sports hernia to them and they all have no clue.  so i have printed out a ton of info to give one of the doctors to educate him.  search the internet for sport hernia, sportsman hernia, and athletic pubalgia.  You will find a ton of information and it affects male and female.  Hope this helps you.

I had inguinal hernia surgery in 2004.   I did have complications and had to be taken into surgery a second time.   The doctor lidocained a big nerve that was giving me a problem.  According to the doctor  I had a big fat nerve and the mesh may have  scratched it.

Well, it took 8 weeks for  the nerve to get better.  But  in the last year have been feeling extreme pain in the same area as I had surgery.  It basically feels like I have been kicked in the testicles.

The surgeon said he could go back in and " Muck around"  in his words but that might not do any good.

Can anyone shed any light on what might be the problem?  Any ideas, thoughts.... My email  is   ***@****  Thanks..

They also have a list of many medical articles written about sports hernia.
