    my company leaves for the field (10 days for some live fires and stuff) early monday morning and i found out i have very bad strep throat and tonsilitis today. the medics refuse to let me go out becuase they say i will get worse and also spread it big time :wtc: i was looking forward to it too because in this damn unit we dont go to the field as much as regular infantry units.

    :hug: I know the feeling, back in April I had my tonsils and adnoids taken out.

    :wtc: Good way to lose 30 lbs because I didn't eat for more than a month after surgery. Fucken tonsils, suppose to be an easy surgery, my ass! :mad:

    yeah i may have to get my tonsils out they said. i had my adnoids taken out when i was a kid already. were your tonsils removed with a laser or cutting or what? if i get them removed this coming week would i recover in time for air assault school mid/end september?

    Mine were burned out useing what I guess you could say a sodering iron thingy, burns it right out until there's no tonsils left which was explained to me. Took me 2-3 months to recover cause I had 2 infections.

    End of sept? Hmm, well they told me there was no way I should do heavy lifting (why I couldn't do kickboxing) for a month and a half, and to start easing into doing heavy stuff after because I could bleed and cause complications.

    The older you are, the more painful the surgery to remove them. I had mine out when I was 13 and it hurt like a motherfucker. I can not imagine the pain you will go through. (probably as bad as surprise goatse!) :noes:

    :wtc: x 100

    Just think of haveing Stepthroat and haveing the effect of burning coal in your throat.

    Than when you eat times that by 10x as you can taste the blood in your mouth/throat as it tears at the 'white' skin in the back that is soft scabs that rip off :wtc:

    Are you nuts? You actually WANT to go to the field? 11B or not, I hate the god damn field and so do a lot of my peers. :slap: just for that.

    More to it than that, but not much. Slingload is were everyone fails out. Just remember to touch what you see and see what you touch during slingload inspection and you will be fine.

    You read my posts in Army.ca forums, my future with the CF is all but dead :wtc: Now I'm applying for my green card, and after I get back from my trip to France in December/January I'll be getting my GED than heading down to the states to either become a Ranger or Marine.
