Guess I'll just do my time and wait then.
I have a chronic condition which is currently incurable with today's technology. It's called Thorasic Outlet Syndrome. In nature, it is very like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, except that it affects the Thorasic Nerve instead of the Carpal Nerve. For anyone experienced with Carpal Tunnel, the easiest explanation is that I have it all the way up my arm, into my spine.
It's cause is the reason it's inoperable. I have extreme "tendon laxity," which is a fancy way to say I am double jointed and more flexible than Gumby. In short, my tendons give so much, my joints don't stay in place. This has caused "multi directional instability" in my right shoulder, meaning it flops around at willl, dislocating constantly.
Which irritates the nerve (TOS), cartilige (arthritis) and bursa (bursitis.) The standard cure would be to shorten the tendons, but because of the laxity, they would only lengthen again. Repeated surgery to shorten them again would cause scar tissue build up, defeating the purpose.
See you on the other side in a couple of months, 350 posts and $15!! (I hope!)
