  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

LOL@Geeky

Well that was my PCP take on it .

I am sure they can do different procedures to remove the prostate.

This is why I ask this question  I may need to have mine removed  if I don't stop the dribble and my prostate keeps swelling .

Personally I don't think any type of surgery including Cool Sculpting or laser surgery for large weight loss.

here we have to disagree a bit.

Gastric Bypass works it is just slow and very annoying.

the deal with CoolScultping and LaserLipo is for someone who is really really large, they are a jump start. People definitely need to change eating and exercise habits along with the surgery.

Further the OP is in a wheelchair and has knee/back issues that being overweight can/do make worse.

Everyone has a right to an opinion and I do respect yours, I just disagree as to how much those type of processes could help the OP. 

I find it difficult to tell the person in the wheelchair that they need to exercise more and eat less.

Now for someone like me, who is in the wheelchair for a very limited time, then sure I do expect my friends to tell me 'you're getting fat and need to stop eating so much' because it is true and I will soon be able to start exercising again.

And I do need to exercise more. I am just as guilty of being sedentary as most old men are. I do need to exercise more no doubt.

To be blunt aerobic exercises are a little difficult on crutches lol but at least I will be able to walk more and get off my fat arse.

I had VA remove my Appendix and all I remember about that was I had to have emergency surgery and they poke a stomach pump tube down my damn nose and I fought the Dr's on it took 4 or 5 Dr's to get that tube down my nose  ...and then waking up after the surgery freezing and the nurse put a warm fresh  sheet out of the dryer over me   which felt so dame good  and then urinating all over the place when they pulled  the urine tube out my penis

but it was not to bad  that was back in 1984

    • I was denied SC for IBS and GERD IN 2011. In 2019 I was awarded SC for GERD. This CUE  is for 2011, both GERD and IBS. There are some odd aspects regarding the 2011 decision, the way it was written and the C&P report and the way it was written. I've tried to present this as clearly as I can. Note: the decision contradicts itself. the decision also contradicts the C&P Report. Honestly, I think the rater just got confused because the C&P was so poorly written. *THIS CUE HAS NOT YET BEEN SUBMITTED*Please let me know what you think. Appreciate all comments and suggestions. Thanks.
