Got a Medical Question? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hi. Dr Rick here. I completed an Internal medicine internship in NYC and have two decades of clinical experience. How can I assist you today?
Have you had any surgery or wounds on that shoulder, metal left in there from your Army days etc?
Is there an abnormal bump or shape to your shoulder?
No wounds or shrapnel courtesy of the USA. I do have some minor muscle pain.
Well, there you have it then......
The TSA folks are just plain crazy.
There is no figuring out why they do the things they do...and if you ask them you are a terrorist and will be treated as such.
Just smile and keep moving along and all will be fine.
Does this make sense to you?
That simple. I find it unusual that I actually got a free med exam from Gov't Hah
Ya...and that is probably the only place you will get one of those ;)
I hope this information was helpful for you. But I do work for tips so I want to make sure you are happy with me before rating me. If you have another question on this or a related issue feel free to fire away. You may also receive an email survey after our chat, if you don’t feel that I have earned a “10” rating in all areas, please let me know what I can do to meet your expectations. Thanks in advance, Dr. Rick MD FACS
Have a great day and thanks.
One other thought....don't bend over around the TSA folks. Better safe than sorry, if you get what I'm saying ;)
