    Went to the Doctor today for my check up. I have regained over 80% of movement, and the swelling and inflammation have finally started to go down. I should be able to move on to the next phase of therapy within a week or so. Doctor said I should be back to normal activity within 4 months, and doesn't see any reason as to why I would be disqualified medically from retraining into Combat Control. The big test will be when I get back into the pool and if the pain returns once I start swimming long distance. So far so good though.

    Excellent! Does this mean you won't be going the Officer/WO route? Cuz you know we'd have to shoot you, right. :squint:

    Still haven't ruled out WO. I came into the Air Force to be a Combat Controller, and that is what I am going to work towards until I am 100% sure I can not do the mission. But at the same time I am 31 years old and need to look at other career paths.

    They need higher ranks in the CCs and PJs.

    It all comes down to how much abuse the shoulder can handle.

    Glad to hear your getting better. Good luck with the training. Try not to suck up to much you might hurt it more.

    I don't know, and if she doesn't start paying rent I am kicking her out.
