Ok so I'm so mad right now I thought I would share my sports pain with everyone. So some of you might know that I swim in college but havnt swam pretty much all season because of a shoulder problem. So I had an MRI and it was just a rotator cuff inflammation due to instability in my shoulder. But it hasn't gotten any better so I had to go see the team Doc. Well the first words out of his mouth were surgery. He thinks I have torn some cartlidge. So I'm pissed! He said the recovery time is 6 months! But I guess the only good thing is that I get my year back through a medical redshirt. Just had to vent a little!!

That is too bad... Good luck, and I wish you a speedy recovery.

You're young, and will repair quickly. Up until about 3 months ago, the worst injury I'd ever suffered was a broken heart from a girl named Andrea back in '93, and some knee damage due to falling down a hill in a drunken stupor at an OU Halloween party in '90.
Now I have a neck injury that I'm rehabbing, and a new L 4-5 that happened yesterday resulting from, as far as I can tell, making the bed!

Moral of the story...no matter how much you take care of yourself, shit happens, and it only gets worse as you get older.

Hope everything goes well with your shoulder. I was a swimmer back in the day, thought about swimming in college, but decided against it. GOOD LUCK!!!!

Thanks Guys/Girls! It sucks but the sooner I can get it fixed the sooner I can get back in the water... :helmet:
