Haha, if you don't know if you belong in the marines, you don't belong in the marines. Seriously though. You don't belong. Go join the navy. It does it's job and I appreciate it for what it is, but a marine is a marine, no questions, ever.

I will avoid surgery but I fear I might have to have it. Physical therapy hasn't done much and I have been in for about 12 visits.

I have medically discharged 5 soldiers just this year for injuries similar to what you describe. Everything from infantrymen to supply soldiers to intelligence analysts. While I am not a medical doctor. I am very qualified to talk about what it takes to do this job everyday. If you don't have any pain now, that may not be the case in a year after you ruck around some and run on pavement everyday. Then you are back where you are now but with more injuries. I applaud your gumption young man, I do agree that should talk to your local recruiter. If you lie or hide that you have a pre existing medical condition you can be punitively discharged just FYI so just be honest. Sorry for being harsh.
