Haven't posted in so long...

Hello sisters,
I haven't posted in a long time, but I still check in daily to see how everyone is doing. Now I have a question...I've been coaching a local college's women's soccer team since last fall and I've been practicing and playing with them from day one. After our outdoor season ended last October, we immediately started playing indoor soccer, one day a week we practice and one day we have a game. I have had no problems at all until last night after our game. My pelvic area was very sore and achey. This morning I could hardly walk when I got out of bed. I took three Ibuprofen which barely touched the pain. The pain is pretty intense. I'm walking hunched over like I did right after my hyst.!!! I'm thinking it's maybe pulled muscles, but does anyone have any other ideas?

Thank you for your kind words!! I don't think it's adhesions as the pain came on so suddenly. I'm actually thinking it may be a hernia? My belly is definitely swollen but I don't feel a bulge? Can you always feel a bulge when it's a hernia?

Hey there, stranger!

Sorry pain is bringing you back to the "road" to post.

I'm not too educated when it comes to hernias...maybe someone else can help out. Maybe you overdid it a bit much? I know when I go crazy with yardwork and gardening I certainly feel it the next day...achey almost period-like cramps, bloated tummy, etc. Have you tried a heating pad? That provides me w/some relief. If 3 ibuprofens aren't cutting it, though, you may want to visit your doctor if the pain isn't abating yet. I hope you feel relief soon and Keep in touch!

I do not have much personal experience with hernias...But I recently joined DH at his appointment with our GP. DH hurt his groin doing some very heavy lifting, and we were worried about a hernia so off to the doc we went.

It took me over a week before I could get him to agree to go...and he had very bad pain the whole time. The doc did an examination and said that he didn't 'feel' one. He instructed dh to not do any heavy lifting until the pain went away...because if he did, there was a good chance of him developing a hernia. I'm not sure exactly what that means - perhaps if Bob continued to strain his injury a hernia could have developed??...But we listened, and he started feeling better yesterday-just over two weeks later.

Having said all of that, do get this checked out if it doesn't ease up soon.

Please let us know how you are doing...

I have no personal experience w/ Hernia's either. I did want to share some links I have that contain some excellent info on them!
They might provide you some better insight on their symptoms ect:





Femoral hernia - causes, symptoms: http://hcd2.bupa.co.uk/fact_sheets/m...al_hernia.html

Inguinal hernia:

hernia overview:

Hernia repair, surgery:






Hope this is of some help There are several others here who have had Hernia repairs..maybe if you would start a new thread w/ *Hernia* in the title, they would see it & share their experiences, just a thot?!?!
Good Luck ... pls keep us posted...(((hugs)))

Hello sisters,
My DH came home early from work yesterday, saw how much pain I was in and insisted I call my doc. I was able to get a 4:45 appt. and lo and behold, I do have a hernia, right below my hyst incision. My doc also said I pulled muscles in the same area, so I am to take it easy for a few days and see if the symptoms subside. This morning I actually feel a little better, so I'm hoping the muscle strain is what was causing most of my pain. I have to go back to my doc next Friday to check on the hernia. I can only feel it when I cough real hard (that's how my doc found it). My Mom had a hernia that was asymptomatic for years until she finally had to have it repaired. That's what I'm hoping for!!! I'm having the time of my life right now, coaching & playing soccer, and I REFUSE to let a little hernia get in my way!!!

I just had to respond to this, as I am a fellow soccer player and youth coach. I love soccer, and have been glad to see that even at my ripe old age of 48, my playing is improving since surgery. However, it is really hard on the body, isn't it, especially indoors with the unforgiving turf.

I've also been working more on my abs and taking Pilates classes, which I think has increased my strength in my torso in general and which offsets the soccer playing nicely.

I hope you heal quickly and feel better soon!
