The process for removing actual bone marrow is a little more delicate than just shoving the corkscrew needle into the bone. Its akin to getting a spinal, just on a different part of the body, and is usually done in the operating room.
They might use something else in these type of cases but when they just need bone marrow for testing I know how its done and they use that tool. They drive in down into the bone (by hand), the suck out the core of bone they cut out using that tool. I saw it done and know this for a fact.

That's standard. I was doing motion stuff the next week after my surgery. The pain of leg pressing 10lbs was tough to go though. I think it was more depressing because you struggle just to push 10 or so pounds...lol

I agree but one thing RGIII has going for him is that he's done it all before the hard thing to do will be to tune others out and listen to the doctors .
