Hello eveyone, I´m 25 years old and I´m from Sweden and I´m a professional bandyplayer (a big sport in Sweden like hockey but on a pitch with the same size as a soccer pitch) Last November I hurt my groin. With two weeks rehab I was back in the game but I hurt the groin again. After 3-4 weeks more rehab I was back again for about 7-8 games until I hurt my groin for the third time. This was in January and since then I havn´t been able to pratice at all. For 2 months ago I got the diagnosis "inflammation symphysis pubis" and I have now taken two injection of corticosteroid and I´m eating voltaren two times every day. I´m still having big pain in the groin, around the symphysis and the hip. The doctors said that this is going to take at least 4 months and I will miss the whole season.
Is there anyone who had a injury like this who has some experience about it? It´s very hard living with this and it would be nice to hear someone with experience from it.
Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.
