    Re: Elbow

    Update: It's happening. I am getting a surgery to correct this issue in less than 2 weeks. I was able to get this diagnosed as subluxation of my ulnar nerve, a fancy way of saying a nerve cord in my elbow that falls out of it's groove and rubs over the bone went bent. Unlike "Snapping Triceps Syndrome" where the tricep grinds out of place and dislocates, my condition is only for that of the ulnar nerve. However it still is painful and debars me from being successful at BUD/s. There is no doubt this is the issue. I've gotten an MRI and an ultrasound to figure out what the deal is and it pleases me to say that I have finally gotten real answers and made true progress in getting this dang problem reversed. The surgery is quite simple and quick, requirign me to be knocked out for only 30 minutes and the following week to have a cast.

    I haven't truly worked upper body in about a year's time. My entire body is very weak compared to what I used to be but the recovery time is only 6-8 weeks for the surgery so after that I can start building back to where I was and getting my contract. I'm so hyped to finally get this surgery and take back my progress that I've lost over the last year. I hope that anyone who reads this will get the help they need. Look for the simple fix before moving on to complicated diagnoses. Lesson learned.

    I'll keep you all updated for the sake of the thread and anyone who needs it in the future.
