    Since the Air Force surgeon did such a wonderful job repairing my shoulder the first two times, I have the lovely opportunity to have a third shoulder surgery. :mad: A local Dr. refused to treat me due to the history and type of treatment I received from the surgeon of my past two surgeries. :mad: Luckily the best Orthopedic Dr. in America is only 180 miles away, and Tricare actually approved the referral. :eek3: So, I go up Monday to see Dr. James Andrews and find out what needs to be done this time. :wtc: Hopefully this surgery doesn't cost me my flying career the way the last two ruined my Combat Controller dreams. :hs:

    Here is a little write up on Dr. Andrews done by ESPN.
