    Hey everybody, sorry for the delayed update. A couple ups and downs. My surgeon basically said (in the most professional way possible) that there wasn't a visible problem so he couldn't do much about it. The groin hasn't interfered too much with normal life, but enough to be annoying. My...

    Hey @Mojo333 - things are going okay. I'm still getting the groin pain, so I'm not confident that the wire was the root of the problem. It's not as bad as it was, and it's still early-ish in the healing process, so who knows. Just need to give it some more time. I have another follow up with...

    If this forum allowed cursing, I would be typing different words - the groin pain seems to have returned. I know it could very well be the same soft tissue just recovering from the removal still, but it's definitely the same pain. Started this afternoon. The only trigger I can think of is being...

    Hey, come on... I live in the home of the Bakersfield Sound, our country songs are more than just three chords!

    @Mojo333 Well... I walked like 45 minutes around downtown LA this morning, but I promise I'll chill tonight (after back to school night anyway). I'm not good at chilling apparently. To be fair, I didn't want to walk so much, especially in 90 something heat wearing a wool suit... But my sense of...

    Unfortunately I didn't think to ask about seeing the wire. The doc told me that my groin pain could have been the wire, could have been from the pressure from the cyst the wire caused, or could be something totally unrelated to the wire - we'll see if I get a recurrence of that pain over the...

    Oh I'll definitely update on what went down after my post op (I think 9/5 or 9/6). I'm curious too, and hopefully the info is helpful for someone searching for this weirdly particular situation in the future. My wife informs me that they're shaking almond trees right now, so it may well just be...

    Thanks! I'm entertaining myself by trying to figure out the cyst based on medical journals I don't understand, instead of reaching out to my very friendly and accessible medical team... Which I'm sure it's a totally logical approach. I'm hoping it's actually confirmation that the wire was the...

    Luckily I wasn't banking on Miller anyway... not like a couple years ago where 4/5 of my first picks were injured by week 3. My quad really started bugging me last night and today. Just SO stiff, and the bruising is ramping up (I assume the two are probably related). I put on real shoes this...

    Everything went pretty well, even though I drafted Lamar Miller about two minutes before he tore his ACL. The drive was fine, I forced myself to stop and stretch even though I didn't want to. I feel like it's improving quickly, I've been walking around without the cane a bit, but limping so I'll...

    Well, I've gotten a couple twinges of the groin pain we're hoping this gets rid of, but nothing serious. I guess it would make sense for the soft tissue to be a little annoyed anyway, if the wire was rubbing against it before. Overall, this afternoon has been good, though I can tell when the...

    @Barbaraj - I didn't have that bad of a reaction to the bandage, just some redness (which made me freak out thinking about an infection after the big surgery). I only thought of it because I noticed I have all kinds of weird marks on my skin right now, haha. The weirdest is a bruise-looking...

    @Regenm I think I started going into the office part time after three weeks, but delayed all meetings and out of office work for as long as I could. And with my job, I can close the door, undo my pants, and shove an icepack where it needs to go, haha. I couldn't imagine having to deal with 7th...

    Day 1 post-wire-removal: I forgot how important stool softeners are, and that my skin doesn't like the bandage my surgeon uses. Other than that, just muscles that feel like somebody pushed them out of the way.

    Even better than calling, they use an online system and a physicians physician dedicated to answering questions - he responded in about ten minutes. He would have to check with the doc on the cyst questions, but confirmed my doctor does NOT require the stockings (which is good, since it's 100+...
