But you knew that fact when you started the course of study, so that's not an unexpected circumstance. You also could have taken a short trip back to the US long ago, despite the need to work for 2 years as a condition of the degree.

+ plus the other one. Being in states out of work, i couldn't afford medical insurance, although i did have not serious, but very close to serious disease. I had thyroid lymph nodes, which i've successfully cured being out of states. I was diagnosed in 2007.
Is your spouse in the US military or been working abroad as an employee the US government, and were you living with your spouse when abroad? If yes, you wouldn't need a reentry permit or SB-1 visa to return to the US, you just need the military or government papers. If not, apply for the SB-1 anyway and see what happens. They might give it to you anyway (after harassing you about it) since you can get a new green card anyway in the next 6-12 months if they don't approve you, and they might not want to create more work for themselves and USCIS by forcing you to do that.
