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..

In case someone else is looking for info on sports hernia, I found a lot of valuable explanation on Sports Hernia South at http://www.SportsHerniaSouth.com which describes the symptoms of sports hernia, how to diagnose sports hernia, and how sports hernia treatment with rehabilitation and exercise before you have to resort to sports hernia surgery. They also have a list of many medical articles written about sports hernia.
Hey does sports hernia goes with symptoms like epididymitis? I work in a warehouse and felt like I strained a muscle on my lower hip then day after my testicle is swollen
