…. Tough loss

There were multiple times when I wrote that we all needed to realize that the problems plaguing Noah Lowry were career-threatening. It now appears that his Giants career –at least– is over:

…. Lowry was diagnosed twice in the last five days with thoracic outlet syndrome, a circulatory disorder that both doctors — one who practices with Dr. James Andrews in Alabama, and Dr. Greg Pearl, who performed today's surgery — apparently believe was the root cause of the forearm numbness that first shelved Lowry in August, 2007.

In March 2008, Lowry had surgery to cut a sheath around the muscles in his forearm to relieve wha

t was described as exertional compartment syndrome, which Giants doctors believed to be the cause of his numbness.

That diagnosis now is being called into question, and Lowry now wonders if he has lost two years of his major-league career to a misdiagnosis and a surgery he did not need.

That's a tough thing to face. I'm currently going through a similar misdiagnosed problem with my elbows, three years running and no real solution, and I can tell you it's exhausting, mentally and physically. And like Lowry, it's costing me my career (I'm a carpenter) and denting my income.

My thoughts go out to Noah and his family as he tries to rebuild his strength and get back to baseball.
