    Saw Dr. Andrews yesterday, and in his opinion surgery is my best option. Not looking forward to another 3 months of doing everything left handed. Good thing I already know how to whipe my ass left handed. I should have practiced that before the first surgery. :ugh: Since I am in the "bubble" in flight school awaiting for Apache training, I am not going to be off schedule by much. This should, at the most, push my graduation date out 2 months.

    I felt seriously outclassed sitting in the waiting room at Dr. Andrews. It was me, and 3 NFL players that I watch on TV every Sunday. Due to confidentiality BS I can't say who I was sitting with, but one of them is going to the pro bowl as a safety, another is a TE who has a 1,000+ yard receiving year, and the third is a free agent lineman this year. Funny part is they thought I had the cool job. :wtf: I guess the grass is always greener. The lineman's wife asked me how I got injured. I know she was expecting a cool war story, but when I said football they all laughed.

    I wonder if you're getting this specialist because of the change in your rank/status, or if you would have eventually gotten the same thing as an NCO? I'd like to think you would, but I don't.

    Labrum tear, subchondral cyst, degenerative damage to the humeral head, and possible narrowing of the joint due to arthritis. This will be my 3rd labral repair in 31 months. 1st two were by an Air Force surgeon I like to refer to as "The Butcher".


    Holla by the way.

    Go to Milos while you're at UAB and get a burger.

    Jesus, that's pretty signifigant. I remember you having shoulder problems when we were working together.

    Sorry to hear it man. Good luck on the surgery. I hope this guy can repair some of what the previous guy did.

    There's one right on 6th Ave N. and 19th street. So it'll be like a street over from where you're staying. It's a burger joint that's real good, but kinda messy.
