Default WTF Need more surgery!

I am so pissed! I am 21 and had reconstructive surgery on my shoulder two years ago. Now my other shoulder is doing the EXACT same thing that the other one was before surgery. I knew I had dislocated both of them 4-5 times each but the left one was never as bad as the right, which I got surgically reconstructed.

I am just pissed since the military told me they probably wouldn't take me due to the single surgery and I just needed to vent a little

Judo? Jujitsu? Some other martial art? Other than motorcycle racing, I can't think of any other way that someone would have dislocated their shoulders 4-5 times each...

Sorry to hear about your pain...

Rugby

I am hoping that the surgeon will tell me physical therapy will fix it, but it is acting 100% the same way the other was before it got fixed. When ever I do incline bench press, military press or high weight bench press it pops and feels like it is going to fail. My physical therapist told me a year ago best case scenario it is a tendon or ligament (not sure the distinction any more between them) that is damaged and snaps/rolls over the joint as it extends

I dislocated mine that many times just trying to escape the straight jacket the army put me in.

You are way too young for that kind of surgery - you will be in my thought and prayers.

That's bad news. My left knee does odd things occasionally, but I've been able to avoid surgery.

I play flanker, second row, and 8man. At least last surgery I was in the shape of my life and had a resting heart rate of <50 BPM. Ah I miss the days when I could consume 5000 calories and lose weight!

Now days, not so much haha.

Thanks for all the kind words!

8man has to be the funnest position for a big guy.

as a small guy, i'd have liked to play scrumhalf. we had a really, really good scrummie tho.

good luck man.

Thanks a bunch! #8 is definitely my favorite position but I have made my way on teams as a strating second row so that is my main position.
