Injuries Sustained while in Service was created by Jerriko
As you may know I am a combat medic in the US Army 10th Mountain Div. A few months ago I suffered a dislocation to my right shoulder,while carrying a comrade to safety from his point of injury. I have seen various medical personnel and it seems there is damage to the nerve bundle which has developed into a right brachial plexopathy (nerve damage to long thoracic nerve), from the reports there is some healing but there are chances I may have permanent nerve damage to my right arm, along with partial paralysis. I simply ask to be kept within the minds of my brothers and sisters of the Order. I have hopes to eventually make a full recovery and I know the force shall guide me whatever may happen.

I have the same injury in the same arm!!! It's been over a decade now and I do not have all the feeling back, but most of the pain went away a long time ago!

I wish you well and hope your recovery goes better than mine did! :P

May the Force be with you my friend.
