hey i am wondering how dirk is doing?
i also suffered a sports herina, only i went 18 months before being diagnosed. had bilateral surgery in aug 06 and am still in pain today. not as bad, but still suffering to the point where it affects daily activities.
i am hoping that dirk can shed some light on this. this is a terrible injury that not enough docs understand; pro athletes are constantly monitored thus can get a prompt treatment.
too bad dirk had to redo the surgery. i can recommend some methods to help out with the scar tissues but i myself would be excited to hear what he says about the pain and nerve irritations.
thanks a lot
