Hope you can heal up soon.

Both elbow's went?
And has it happened before?
Think it is specialist time.

The E.R. Doc (really good guy, known him for quite a few years) went over the x-rays with me. Obviously the connective tissue didn't show, but there is some calcification and a bone spur, probably from three decades of heavy lifting. One of the calcified areas on the tendon had a straight edge, which suggests that is where the tendon separated. Adding where it hurts, the mechanism of injury and where the lumps are, it makes sense. Doc explained it by saying over the years, the connective tissue changes from strong rubber bands to old beef jerky.

Sorry to hear you got hurt A Teamer. I hope you get better soon. You gotta know your limitations, it's too bad you can't put a rookie on a leash and tell him to "hit" on command. Seriously, get better, follow the Drs orders and the PTs advice.

How long until you go for surgery and how long will you be out?

Meet with ortho on Tuesday. Out for eight weeks, at least that is the initial estimate.

Make sure you document every aspect of the injury. I'd keep a recording of the healing process, Dr. appts etc. as well.

It never hurts to have the facts on your side in case anything unfortunate ever happens.

Hope your recovery is speedy enough, but also long enough to give you some time to maybe get some further perspective on how you want to spend the rest of your career.

While some of the HR/RM depts seem to use good doctors (mine generally did, including well known sports medicine surgeons), it really helps to have your worker's comp attorney monitor what's being done for you ... and maybe not being done for you. After all, the insurance companies work for the employer's RM dept (their client), protecting their client's interest.

The goal is to finish your career and remain in good enough shape to enjoy your retirement ... and continue to spend the county's retirement money for many years to come.

I'm sorry to hear this 'Team. Good job staying in the fight and winning it!!!

Was the scumbag charged with your injury? Is there a higher charge with resisting that ends in injury to an officer in California?

So, back to the courthouse?

In Cali 69pc Resisting an Executive officer w/ force or violence is a felony vs 148pc which is a misdemeanor. I hope the DA breaks it off in the crook´s ass, but I won't hold my breath.

Good luck w/ meeting the ortho.

I think they booked him for 148.10 -resisting and causing injury, felony. I have no faith at all that a judge will do the right thing and send him to prison. The law became meaningless when reduced sentences and probation was foisted on the world. Prison would do this offender a lot of good. He'd have time to reflect, medical and dental care at no cost and educational opportunities.

Not good, I have been contemplating how to get out of the rat race lately myself for other reasons.

I hope that you don't have any issues with workers comp and your municipality jerking you around about this.

So much for justice...

I hope the SO is taking care of you.

I got into a scuffle ok Wednesday and sprained my wrist. Same wrist that I messed up in the academy. This time on the radial side. Xrays showed calcification of the old injury around the torn ligament.

No charges filled as the crook was a.prior deport who will be on the plane Wednesday and the AUSA would have just laughed at me.

I've been slacking off my workouts for quite a while. Time for me to get back in it.
