Re: Back problems

Tip - First thing I would do is see a neurosurgeon. If he can't help I would go to a pain management clinic. I've been getting cervical epidural steroid injections for years. For cervical and thoracic epidurals you have to be off aspirin for 7 days prior. For lumbar epidurals you don't need to go of...

Re: Heart Attacks vs. Cardiac Arrests

Stella... Couldn't open the article as I have dial-up and a really old browser. The vast number of causes for a SCA are blood related with heart attack being number 1. Last on the list is non- ischemic electrical problems within the heart. So, yes it is possible to have a heart attack and end up wit...

Re: OT-TEST DILEMMA

I don't understand all the discussion here. If you are Stage 4 the definition is that the cancer has metastasized and spread to far away lymph nodes or other organs. Without the PET scan I don't see how you can be Stage 4 without the confirmation. Even so there are treatments for Stage 4 although lo...

Re: any ideas?

Sadly it's true. It was Christmas eve and Al heard a clatter on his roof. He climbed up to see what was the matter and stepped in a pile of reindeer poo. It was all downhill from there until he landed on his head. Take comfort in knowing he will soon be with Grandma, who if you recall, had a reindee...

Re: Happy Thanksgiving

Ha Ha, Gary, as usual you don't know what your talking about. Possibly a side effect of watching too much CNN. Coumadin dropped that warning from their label 5 years ago because there was no proof of interaction. Just think about how much cranberry product you missed out on!

Re: Burning sensations in body after inplant

That's odd....Atlas had the same complaints while holding up the earth. If these are bi-lateral I would say not ICD related. Did this start soon after implant? Similar sensations before implant? Cervical problems? Stenosis? You should mention it to your docs.

Good wishes to you. Alan

Re: OT: drug pricing alert

Our government would have to pass legislation to lower our drug prices. This is nearly impossible to do when we have congresspersons receiving millions of dollars in political contributions from Pharma to make sure it doesn't happen. Trump has a plan but will be an uphill battle to get Congress to p...

Re: OT: drug pricing alert

You do realize that WSJ article was taken from a CNN report, right? You do realize that drug prices sky-rocketed under ACA because Obama's Congress put no restrictions on Pharma like they did on insurance companies and hospitals, right. If Trump was able to get Pfizer to delay their price increases ...

That's nice. You must have seen him at the homophobe support group meeting you have in your garage Tuesday evenings. I hear you like to greet everyone with a half-azz blue wave.

Huh, I never considered that RR might be Australian. I just figured his anger and depression stemmed from being an American Democrat.
