The surgery must have seemed successful and a back-up plan did not seem necessary.
After all he kicked a record-tying 63 yard field goal in September--about eight months after the surgery.
At some point after that he may have re-injured the groin, or he might have a different unrelated injury.
We really do not know--and Harbaugh is not going to tell us.
edit: post #25 explains he had a flare up on the same injury after the NO game which was on November 25.
