    You do realize that this thread is 8 years old, right? Most of the people above no longer come to this site on a regular basis.

  • There are several turning mattresses and beds, both low air loss (LAL) and otherwise on the market. There are also air fluidized beds like the Clinitron, but they are really not appropriately used for prevention. There is also the fluid immersion simulation mattress like the Dolphin, but turning is...

    replied to Low Sodium??
    in Care
    If you have no pre-existing conditions with your kidney, heart or liver then low sodium can be attributed to drinking too much water.
    I’m assuming your creatinine level was within normal limits? And you are not taking diuretics?

    This is a very specific article referring to a conus medullaris syndrome SCI and how it effects pain in the penis
    i have had patients who have had generalized nerve pain in the genitalia who were quadriplegics. The pain developed several years after the initial injury so something may have changed...

  • Ableism is everywhere. I would have told that male "Karen" that he should be thankful for being AB, and to stop harassing PWD like the POTUS.

    I would recommend a pain clinic pharmacist make recommendations for pain.
    as mentioned above there are other options to opiates
    there are certain antidepressants and anti seizure medications that are used and effective for nerve pain
    If you have a suprapubic port and penile/urethral...

  • Are you not interested in buying a condo instead of renting an apt.? If you are going the rental route with apartments, focus on new, large complexes which are much more likely to be compliant with ADA regulations for the 5% of units that are required to be ADA compliant. Landlords, as owners of “public...

    The OP has not visited our site since 2016, so that is extremely unlikely.

    I think KLD answered some of the questions about the plug above.
    Yes that clamp is old school but the important part is that it has flat pressure points on the catheter otherwise you risk poking a hole in the catheter
    I’d keep looking to see if a plastic clamp can be found if concerned...

  • What file? In which forum? In which thread? Posted by whom? We lost most PDFs in the recent hacking attempt, so the only way to get it back is to request that the original member who posted it re-post.

    Most likely nothing to be concerned about but you should have xrays to be sure. CWO

    You should take a Bendryl ( Diphenhydramine) 25 mg . It may make you sleepy. Also Hydrocortisone on your rash. If you have difficulty breathing or swallowing you need to go to the emergency room. CWO

  • Since it is also easier to push your chair on a hard surface than on carpet, I would also consider this a reasonable accommodation, but the landlord can make you pay for it; and even require you to put carpet back in place when you move out. It's worth a try though.

  • You would need to talk to someone who is very familiar with your HSA. That may be someone in your HR department if this is a HSA linked to your company's insurance plan. When I was working and had an HSA through the VA (federal employee) we could not roll our money over to the next year, so I would...

    Apparently Cleveland Clinic is the expert on this and has the largest POUCH center. So I would contact them if you haven't already. I think it is more complex procedure and you have to access it to empty. Do you use enemeez daily? stool softeners? Miralax? It sounds like independence is very important...

    You have neuropathic pain. Have you tried gabapentin? You have to start at a very low dose and slowly increase (start low and go slow) until it gets better then you would remain on that dose. Gabapentin was first used an an antiepileptic but it wasn't a very good one and it was noticed that it helped...

    Kyphosis can cause severe pain and discomfort, breathing and digestion difficulties, cardiovascular irregularities and signs of nerve injuries. Did you complete the Methylprednisolone and was there any decrease in symptoms. Do you have degenerative disc disease? was there compression or your foramen...
