    Same as Oddity and Endo. Imay have used 3 or 4's for sports. I found them unsuitable for everyday use because of the sudden stops from small pebbles etc.

    Welcome Liz. Stay strong, the first anniversary is the worst. It does get better.
    Best advice I was given my first year was to get strong, stay in shape, get educated. If there's ever a cure, we need to be in shape to be accepted for the program and if there isn't we need to be strong to drag...

    in Care
    I had one a while ago. I cut the back of the heel out leaving just a thin strap to hold it on. Worked great and kept all the pressure off the heel yet still able to wear a running show.

  • Being that old, I doubt the door trick will help. It's these new 2018 on up that are tricky with all the comps. on board then added conversion comp.. Yours probably just needs a new auz battery....

  • How old is your van? My new 2019 Chrysler had tha aux battery go on. Was more of computer problem and many visits to the Chrysler dealer. One of the suggestions was to open the drivers side door before I start the van. There is an extra relay or something that goes wonky if it doesn't register the door...

    replied to Colostomy bag advice needed
    in Care
    For myself, I have a descending Sigmoid loop colostomy and use the Hollister two piece setup. To off set loose stool etc., I take one Imodium tablet in the morning. It helps firm up the stool. If I had a ascending, Right side, colostomy, I'd use a one piece setup due to it being more liquidly and...

    For myself, Intermittent cathing, I increase my H20 and increase Vit. C.. If doesn't clear up I get a urine test done.

    47 years post injury

    47 years post injury on the 20th or 21st. Was working as a stunt double for William Shatner and acting on the set. Was a simple motorcycle fall off a large sand dune. Was supposed to ride the bike off the dune, kick the bike away in midair and roll down the sand dune. I hit some hard sand leaving the...

    A FRH be perfect Jeramie; much easier to transfer into . Force is a great bike too. I'll keep my eyes open for one. I've been riding a handcycle going on 44 1/2 years. Back then the only handcycle out was a Jansson. Any speed above 5 mph and the front wheel would flutter.

    My friend and...

  • Depends how many days later you had the test done. If it was done right away, it may be prudent to have one done when the anti biotic is out of the system. Give it a week or so to see how you're feeling and clarity of urine. Are you using Vit. C at all. I've found it has greatly reduced the occurrence...

    in Care
    Good idea getting the infection under control. Perhaps time to have a heart to heart talk with the surgeon or whomever is handling it; about the best way, in their opinion to handle it. I always mention to them that I want to maximize my potential and what is their opinion doing that. It kind of shows...

    The wound wasn't that large or deep when struggling to close the first years. It was the sepsis debridement that did the major damage. Sepsis travels to the nearest artery to get into the blood supply. Mine was heading towards the femoral artery. Doc says it takes just hours in most cases for it to...

    For myself, a T6/7, 47 years post on June 20th., the Roho cushion is the worst cushion of choice. I hate them with a passion.I could never feel comfortable nor stable. For many years I used the blue memory foam with a wedge under the hip that was lower along with a side lateral to support the side I...

    I did the sore thing for two three years what you're doing. Did all Iv's etc. I was scheduled for a flap but got sepsis two weeks before surgery. I went to ER; the surgeon met me there. He had to cut out the sepsis that tunneled in a matter of hours. Creating a much larger wound than before. If I had...

    I take it everyday. One in the morning and one or two in the evening depending on how it looks. I just use the generic Vit. C. 1000 strength tablet. If especially cloudy, I may take one in the afternoon. I drink approx.12-16 cups of water a day using the measuring cup. Perhaps a little less as I don't...

    I'm colonized by years of Intemident cathing. I find when I start getting more sediment or cloudy usrine, I increase the Vit.C. It creates a more acidic enviroment in the bladder. I take 1000 strength 2s's a day and increase it as needed. If it doesn't clear up, I do a ten day regimen of Cephlex. My...
