  • I take Myrbetriq and Toviaz. From what I was told the top and bottom of the bladder are affected by different medications. I'm not sure which but I had 24-48 hour response time from Myrbetriq the first time I used it, but after a month or so leakage occurred again. I took Myrbetriq and Vesicare for...

  • I got it installed today. I appreciate everyone's advice and input, but so far it has held up more than my weight without a single creak, crackle or bow. I realize that it might take time and use before a weakness shows itself, but I will definitely add reinforcement at the first sign or sound.

  • If by chance the truss doesn't feel strong enough, I had an idea about strengthening it. If I make an access above the ceiling and use two or three 4" x 4"'s to span three trusses and bolt it to the center truss, then it should reduce the load substantially. I've drawn up an end view of what...

  • The town I live in is kinda like a Mayberry, so I wouldn't be too sure that proper paperwork with the city is available, but I will ask about it. I'll discuss it with my dad, though.

  • My room was built on to the existing house and they did not add an access to that area. My ceiling is drywall covered in textured plaster. If after installing it, it doesn't feel safe we could possibly put an access hole in the bathroom but that's going to cost me a bit because my dad is too old to...

  • There is no way to access the area above my ceiling. We would have to cut a hole in the ceiling or an access to the outside... neither would be affordable and or easily done. As long as I stay around the 200 lbs. weight zone, I should be okay. I can remember doing chin ups on ceiling joists and roof...

  • Well, I ordered my supplies but found out that my joists aren't running the way we thought. It turns out that the beam above my bed is a roof truss. My dad and a friend of his who knows construction pretty well believe that it will hold especially given the fact that the bathroom wall to the left of...

    I have had them high and low (the ileus') but I would prefer a colostomy at the bottom of the ascending colon because that seems to be where most of my pain comes from and where the pooh gets stuck with constipation. My colon is dilated (seen on an xray) and is likely due to megacolon so I don't know...

    Time for a colostomy or ileostomy...

    Since November of 2016 I have been hospitalized for 6-8 ileus' and managed a couple others at home. I'm tired of getting these damn things and while either procedure may not prevent future ileus' from occurring they will make them easier and cleaner to manage. I have only spoke to my NP about this so...
