I'm not in any way comparing myself to pro athletes, but I currently have a sports hernia - and had surgery for one a few years ago. They're different in terms of pain. 90% of the time, I don't feel anything -- the 10% of the time I do, it's more of an annoyance than a pain. I've gone to the doctor and he said if it's not bothering me a lot, then surgery is a lot more invasive than the hernia itself.
All that to say, just because there IS a hernia, doesn't mean it's constantly something that is debilitating. There are many different levels of it. No telling what AP or Rat had.
