    Interesting update. On Friday, I had an xray of my abdomen done to check for a bowel blockage. After reviewing the first xray, the tech asked if I had broken my left hip before.

    in Care
    More strongly considering getting a colostomy. I would be fully dependent upon a caretaker for applying, maintaining, emptying, etc. the bag. A couple of questions: 1. When the bag needs emptied, does the caretaker 'pop' the bag off to empty it in the toilet, or is there another way it is done?...

    I have a call into my doctor.

    Impaction I suppose. Or could just be constipated. I've had similar experiences in 26 years of quad life. It was not mucousy. Doesn't seem to be abnormally distended, though at times when my abdominal spasms are at their worst it does. I did pass gas,...

    What is the cause?

    Hi, on Monday evening I began developing chills and a low grade fever. At the same time, I began to experience pain in my upper right arm. On Sunday I did a slight workout with my arm, so not sure if I aggravated something, and that is the cause of the pain. However, I have noticed at times when...

    Would having the front legs longer then the rear ones create a balance issue with the chair though?...

    I assume the backrest heights on Nuprodx models are adjustable? As a C4/5 complete, would I be fine with the standard back? As I'm 6'4, I think I'd upgrade to the 20 inch seat depth.
