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?
