Its funny - my wife has a few issues. She went to the doctor a bit.

I'd sit and wait and read the board. It always had these things on it - injections for this and that. I asked the Doc what he thought and he'd say - I was perfect for them. So I'm inoculated for just about everything - from Ross River Fever to Meningococcal/pneumococcal - all the usual - Flu etc - shingles - I had them all. Plus all the ones we had as kids.

Couldn't see any harm in it.

S J S J hopefully you understand what happens with people who have a severe stroke and some TBI injuries (myself). One side is screwed greatly. I can't feel my right fingers and to the elbow. I trained myself - what I did years beforehand. It does not feel, it's sight. If you have no sight - you stop a lot of s>>t. For years it bothered me...but, I see what other people do and they are tradies...not that good.
It's a start. The brain can do wonders, though the pathways are disjointed. Maybe I didn't spell it correcting.

Yes - had a friend/relation - quite young really - who had a stroke. He's progressing slowly - but well.

Talking etc all hard at first.

But he's getting there.

Just come from the Doc - next month - colonoscopy. As I have Ulcerative colitis which I haven't done a colonoscopy for many many years. Recently, blood in the toilet paper. My employee, it's an easy job for 2 days - so, went home after the Doc. Early start tomorrow for me if it doesn't rain greatly - better for me and Mark.

Blood on paper can mean little. If its in the poo it might be something.

Bleeding from anus might be anything from diverticulitis to piles. Not necessarily, and probably not, cancer.

You might find if you've strained, or if its a particularly nasty bit of poo (eg hard) it might cause you to bleed slightly as it exits.

No worries mate. The problem is I should've done the colonoscopy 1 year ago, though I had more urgent issues concerning my neck. Yes, I know I'm stressed - my old Man in a nursing home and my Mother's new knee, and on and off I cook for her and so forth. Not to mention my work and my employee.

I had a colonoscopy and an endoscopy at the same time.

I was told they might use the same equipment - so I asked them to do the top one first ... ;)

would not wish colitis on anyone even you Bazza.
Its a pain at unexpected times and while being checked for it I looked like ET with a heart light travelling through my gut.
I did suffer a "spasm" of the intestine at the time so it made diagnosis easier and in my case reducing stress and diet has a big effect in keeping its effects to mild

Actually, it's Ulcerative colitis and it was years before. I went to another Doc in Sydney. My Doc for years it was stress. Then a Female Dr. gave me all the tests - stool sample, urine, and blood. It was 13 years ago. Though for the last few years I was more concerned about my spine. Neck and back. I take medication for it but recently want I wrote beforehand, Father in a nursing home for Dementia (he doesn't know me) and my Mother. She's alright other than the new knee, but I doubt she does the exercises. She's a drunk.
Work-wise is good in some respect. I'm home now, as we finished the job - straight through no smoko or Lunch. wet as f..k but no concrete posts or tiling. It's better in some respect - nature does it. raining for the gardens and lawns.
Tomorrow Strata 2 buildings. Piece of P*ss.

I got this today. I'll see it's beneficial after stretching and so forth. I used it twice, it mainly puts you to sleep.

I could use one of those.
3 days ago i somehow hurt or aggravated my lower back injury.
pain in hips as well and been limping around the house with two walking sticks and moaning so much the neighbours might think a little BDS&M is going on.
going to sleep isnt the issue...its staying asleep when that comfy position becomes painful and i need to move and find a new position.

it was torture but I was able to supervise the wife mowing the lawns from the bedroom window :eek:
