    also i'm doing my RN now and every professor i have had that had an MD said that arod's injuries are 100% due to his steroid usage. Theres no doubt about it.
    Or it could be do to repetitive usage and wear and tear from running, sliding, diving, torquing his hips to hit. Ask the MD to explain why Arod's injury is due to steroid usage but every other person who has the same injury, is just trauma or wear and tear.

    I would never go to that Dr. if I were you or anyone else. Any person in the medical field who claims 100% and "no doubt" without ever having seen the patient much less the injury, is not a person i would trust to accurately diagnose any ailment.

    I tend to have your feelings about this.
    I don't know about 30 hr but I'm hope you are right. I think he will return and give us 25/85/280. Not amazing but pretty good numbers.

    The pain will be gone for him. The best way I can describe it is, it's like someone hit you in the hip and arse with a club a few times. It's hard to walk, sit, turn and go up stairs. The hip locks when you stand up and rotate He will certainly have arthritis starting but that can be managed with other things.
    He will never be the same player he was 3 years ago but I think he will be much better than last year.
    I would sign up for 85% of what he was 3 years ago for the next few years.
    This is the only reasonable post here. Look A-Rod is the guy we all love to hate. But sometimes I think that hate is fueled by the Media:

    Lets look at some recent facts:

    1.) In 2009 coming off an injury the guy was the most dominating playoff player. He was very clutch (your thinking making up for lost time and you would be right).

    2.) He has battled a bunch of injured, but has never been lazy. the guy might be a Prima- Donna, but he works out like crazy. If anyone can come back from this its A-Rod

    3.) His role with the Yankees will likely be DH. This will eliminate a lot of his injuries. Currently we are looking for a RH bat. A healthy A-rod in August, could do wonders for a stretch run.

    4.) A-rods decline over the past few years is due to various health issues (not necessarily skills) - some fluke hit by a pitch, some degenerate knees and hips). The key is to get him healthy and turn him into Edgar Martinez. In the DH spot - if A-rod can give us 140G, .275, 30HR 100/100. His contract over the next 5 years will be a lot easier to swallow as such numbers would warrant about 15 million per year. I believe A-rod playing DH will increase the chances he can be effective through his contract; I think A-rod is more inline with that.

    4.)As for A-rod the bad guy. Look he did flirt with some girls during a playoff game. But I don't think this takes away from his dedication and preparation for a game. More important, when he was pinch hit for, he didn't make any fuss or say a thing. Look the guy played through pain and didn't perform. If you look at Jeter's bad years he too played through pain and put up bad numbers, but he doesn't get the flack from fans (other than your too old oh my gosh....then he becomes a top 10 MVP player).

    Yankees are at a cross road, and the organization did the right thing. If things break our way this could be a very deadly line-up come September. Could you imagine if everyone fires (which is a BIG if due to health and age) how deadly this could be Jeter-Gardner-Tex-Cano-Arod-Granderson-Youkliss-Catcher-Ichiro?

    I'm for maximizing what we have, and frankly I don't think A-rod is done. Rather I think he needs to be put in a position where he is healthy. I think A-rods days in the field are over. And a 5 year commitment to a DH is an unsettling feeling. BUT Arod is one of the most dominating hitters in the game when healthy. Lets see where that brings us.

    Please provide some names of recent ('roids era) baseball players that have had this same injury and definitively show it wasn't 'roids related!

    I am not trying to be a jerk here... but i guess if the shoe fits...

    I SERIOUSLY question the validity of this comment and the validity of your education. I was Pre Med for 4 years and NO professor of mine active or retired would have EVER made that claim without actually seeing the patient and knowing their TOTAL history. And to be honest I cannot remember the last time I have heard a MD/GP/Specialist EVER use the pharase "NO DOUBT" (unless its a crappy wannabe ska band) and 100%...
    That is not even taking into the account what anabolics he used... they all have unique side effects and affect the body in totally different ways.

    With all of that said I am DEFINITELY not the person to be giving medical advice and a RN (student) definitely should not be commenting on what is FACT (you said 100% which makes it fact) and what is FICTION.

    If what you said is true i would definitely transfer from "Doctor Nick Riveria's School of Medicine" and to a reputable insitiution.

    Well that should just about cover my thoughts... That is all.

    According to him, it was called premabolan. Aside from that, I completely agree. I live with 4 people (mom and 3 sisters) who all have majored in the medical field. You never ever, without a shout of a doubt, claim something about a patient without knowing everything about there medical history and what they did or did not put in there body.

    I've never juiced and I have one. A good friend has one and he has never done them. According to my dr, who is a hip specialist unlike the one you spoke to, there is a genetic component involved with the structure of the pelvis, distribution of weight and pressure to the femoral head combined with excess bone growth (spurs) due to repetitive movements, that can predispose to labral tears and arthritis. If you combine that with heavy training regimes and 20 + years of high impact athletic activity, someone can actually tear a hip labrum without using steroids. It is foolish to presume that every hip labral tear has a steroid component.
    Here are some names and I'm sure there are more. Giavotella from the royals, Jerry Hairston, todd Helton, CLayton Kershaw has a labral tear but won't need surgery, Detweiller, Carlos Delgado, NBA players- Caron butler, lamarcus Aldridge
