Re: A book I must recommend

Totally agree Jane. Over the last couple of weeks I’ve worked my way through Val McDernid’s Detective Karen Pirie books - the first 5, anyway. Finish one, buy the next. Pre order the sixth. Enormously enjoyable, because they are mainly set in my old stamping ground, the Kingdom of Fife. Couldn’t do...

I am trying to get back into the cleaning groove. I have some daunting tasks, but I am trying to tackle them with some of the tips from "How Clean is Your House?"

Re: Today, My Pain Mgmt is Like...

Thank you both for your replies/responses. I am glad to be one step closer to home. I have a new friend named "squishy pillow". I use it to bolster my abdomen since 30-40 staples are holding me together. They come out next Tuesday. Still healing up, so not sure what is post-surgical pain and what is...

Re: Today, My Pain Mgmt is Like...

Hi Folks, I am glad to let you all know that after a few days in ICU I was able to go back to a normal room and a few days after that I got to leave the hospital. The pulmonary embolism is very real, as were the two continuous blood clots in my legs which span all of the vein and like to flap. I tri...

Re: Today, My Pain Mgmt is Like...

Hi folks, A quick update: Adrian, I think the Lidocaine patches work because the area of the pancreas is the second most nerve dense area in the body. The nerves aren't all buried as deeply as the pancreas, so spasms originating from nerve issues may be soothed topically (which apparently makes sens...
