The Naked Truth

I’ve been having problems with my shoulder for quite sometime now. I injured it in a wakeboarding accident last summer, but was too stubborn thought it would eventually heal up. Surprise! It just continually became more painful. About a month ago, the pain was so bad that I had to take painkillers several times a day, just to be able to stick to my routine (I’m quite active). After a particularly grueling session of karate, I wimped out decided enough was enough and went to the doctor.

He performed a few tests and said that it seemed to be a fairly textbook case of bursitis. He proceeded to give me a big ol’ shot of steroid and Novocain. The needle was longer than I’m used to as it has to be able to really get in there to administer the medicine in the right spot. It was uncomfortable, but worth it to spare me the constant shoulder pain.

That was a couple of weeks ago. I’m still not healed up, so I had a return visit today. This time no shot. He sent me for X-rays and is referring me to a specialist. We’ll have to see how that works out.

One cool thing they did was put my X-rays on a disc that I could take home. I’ve never been offered that opportunity before and I have to say…it’s kinda cool. Anyhoo, here is a picture of me laid bare. Enjoy!

I'm not sure what's up with the picture. I can see it on my blog...

Someone else said something similar from my other blog. I just checked the picture file and there doesn't seem to be anything different about it.

Ah, one of life's mysteries. If I can't figure it out by this evening, I'll probably just erase it.
