Sonny,my brother and friend, good report. Sounds just like what i went through. I got 8 tattoos, you only got 3? I managed to make it through the Navy like you and never been tattooed until age 57. Mine look like tiny freckles.
Sounds like you got a good team, clinic, and plan in place.
I can tell you from first hand experience, the custom form fitted mould they use with me from mid thighs to ankles sure hasn't made alignment easy, look at all my posts about alignment problems. Your place may have a point.
Lynn will probably suffer unique side effects considering where and how they are going to radiate her. You, I just want you to be one of the normal guys, that other than fatigue, just work your way through it without all the complications that I have been enduring.
Yeah, I used the same gag about the pictures on the net, they have heard that a million times, lol. But I didn't get any hugs from any good looking women, hope you were a good boy and kept your hands to your side, lol.
You know in advance I am on your team through the whole process, both you and your lovely bride.
