By going to see another doctor, you will be helping him/her retire student loan debt. That will help a like minded doctor equip themselves to survive.


I should clarify: I'm not a medical doctor, my doctorate is is in chemistry. However, I taught the pre-med organic chemistry lab throughout grad school. It's kind of like seeing sausage and laws being made. My impression of most of my students was "Oh my God, they are going to kill everyone they touch!!"
eek eek eek

It's kind of funny though. My current doctor graduated from med school in 2004. He's so young he doesn't even understand why I call him "Doogie". He's actually not bad, his main nurse is HOT and he has stitched me back together a number of times. Like I said though, I have a fear the pain is something bigger than a bit of a sprain...joint issues run in our family and from what I've seen my brother go through, the side effects of the medicines are worse than the arthritis itself.

Two wraps of Prima-Cord, One "initiation device" and maybe a large bandage. Then go see how good "Doogie" is with that needle and thread. Maybe the cat gut will build an immunity to, well, cats?

Forgot, Jack Daniels before, during and after you begin the above treatment, and maybe safety glasses.

Seriously, good luck with the wing. I gritch about carpal tunnel until I hear things like your issue.

i have the Ultimate Gym (???) thing they've been advertising on TV as of late; handles for pushups as well as a pull-up bar that doesn't need any installation, just friction. i HIGHLY recommend it! the pushups ive been doing are a world of difference if only because the extra range of motion i get...you can go 'deeeep' with handles.

i keep telling myself i'm going to do the 100 pushups, but i keep doing the initial max-rep test every night instead of looking at my intervals.

oh, hand placement is key...make sure your arms are square with your shoulders, you'd be amazed at how easy it is to sprain a wrist when youre not square, fatigue sets in and you start cheating.

You get an even greater range of motion if you do chair pushups.
