Sports Hernia

Just wondering if anyone here has had experience with sports hernia.

I'm pretty sure I'm suffering from this right now. I've had symptoms for several months. They're getting a little worse lately. My general practicioner has ruled out an actual hernia and any other problems in the pelvic area, and I'm going to see a sports medicine doctor next week to see what he thinks.

If anyone has had this before, what did you do to treat it? How long before you got better and could go back to hockey? And are there any lingering effects? I'm a Devils fan and know that John Madden had this a couple years back. He really hasn't been the same since. I'm far from a pro but would like to continue playing recreational hockey and be reasonably competitive well into my late 30s and 40s.

Here's a link to a good page describing the symptoms:

Thanks.
