After surviving a hip replacement 14 months ago I have now developed a Sports Hernia on the same side. My doctor has recommended a week of rest/icing the area and then 4-5 weeks of physical therapy. If that does not work then it's surgery. Anybody had this problem? What solved the problem PT or the surgery? If surgery, how long to recover? Damn I maybe 76 but I'm not ready to stop playing....

I had the sports hernia troubles years ago, Had pain walking and could feel the burn on the back 9 especially. At the office visit Dr informed me I had sports hernia on both sides but only one irritated. Had the mesh installed healed great. No issues. No groin pain since.

Day surgery. Recover at home quickly. First 24 hours the worse. Follow the Dr's orders. PT may work idk it wasn't offered in my case.

I think it's a minor set back. Don't stop playing Bob pretty sure you'll get through it. Hip replacement had to be much worse like my prostate surgery but that's another story.

Thank you for the info, I feel a little relieved. I'll let you know what happens. The rest and icing is helping.

Pain means stop what you're doing. Rest. Golf will be there waiting for you when you return. Get well soon!

I developed an inguinal hernia last February. Although it bulged, it did not hurt very much. But the only way it would go away was to have it surgically repaired. I had the repair surgery this past March. Once I had the surgery, I was able to play again in a little over a week. I was told not to lift anything heavy for 30 days. But I could play golf as long as it didn't hurt to do so. No problems since.

It is pretty minor. I had surgery for a dbl hernia on a Tuesday and played golf on Monday. After about 7 holes it completely loosened up and never felt it again. I was 44 a the time. I would say 2 weeks is all you will miss. I am not sure if PT works on that or not.
