    The lawyer’s I had told me it was not worth going through with the law suit. We had a court date and everything but about 6 months to go called me an talked me into dropping the case. I did. I did not want someone to represent me that did not want to represent me. They also told me I would not be able to sue Bionet again. I had to have my right shoulder redone. What I have to worry about is that I also have that part in my left shoulder. Right shoulder first replaced 09/2011 then redone 01/2013. Left shoulder replaced 02/2012.
    I don’t ever remember receiving a recall notice live in Russellville, Al 35653. Robert (Bob) Ovitt
