i'll be just like my 3 old labs...with one bad wing.
i'm headed home, going to take a pain med and sip on some San Miguel beer.
Yo, Mr. Bootay...try what I've been using for several years now on my 'broken' left shoulder. Never had it operated on as I was concerned at the time about the blood flow not returning properly. Broke it in the 80's, and the surgery wasn't all that great in that area.
Couple years ago, a supplement Dr., William Campbell Douglas sent me a flyer about a new DMSO solution called Soothanol X2. Has taken the pain away for me, and I have many others I've advised using it as well.
Not all that costly, considering how well it works. Comes in a small bottle with a tiny opening that I use as an applicator. One caveat...use some surgical gloves, or a glove that you are holding the bottle in as you wipe over the painful area. If this gets on your hands, and you pick your nose, or rub your eye, that pain will make you 'forget' the pain you were trying to alleviate.
FWIW, here's the info you need to get a bottle. 1-800-537-9687 Ask for ID# I6HM1BA Mon thru Fri 8 to 8. If that ID number is outa date, just ask to place a Soothanol order.
I know this will give you comfort, and it lasts for several days per application.
Good luck, Franco.
Thanks UB, I'll check it out.
I told the doctor that I used a heating pad all weekend. He said that made it worse and should have used ice instead.
So, for those over 55 on POTUS, use ICE when in pain!
DMSO is what Satchel Paige used.
I have used it in days of yore.
It does indeed work!!!!
Good luck Franco.......
Ice is for the first 48 hours of a sprain, or some form of muscle or joint injury. But after that time frame, the ice will have caused the blood vessels to clot, and get the healing blood to flow and comfort to begin, you need heat.
I'm a big believer in using ice, but it's maily for reducing swelling in a recent injury, like a rolled ankle; or a pitching arm after firing off a hundred or so pitches. But the muscles around an old injury need heat to loosen up and become flexible, so the nerves sending the pain vibes to the brain aren't being compressed, telling the brain the pain is far worse than it really is.
Even those 'patches' advertised by Shack are so heat gets into those muscles and relaxes them. This Soothanol is likewise a heat producer, relaxing the area of application, and greatly reducing the pain.
Try it, you'll like it. Don't let your Dr. intimdate you.:rolleyes:
Before you were old enough to vote, I can remember telling a social conservative that his agenda was no different than a liberals. His hair was shorter but both agendas would prove to be costly to the American taxpayer & in both cases, it is the taxpayer be damned.
Did my Rotator cuff last year, this year I wouldn't know there was a problem. 5 little holes & it works like a champ. Very little soreness after surgery, didn't use the pain pills except the 1st night as a precaution, 6 months rehab.
I do know one thing though....It's obvious you've won when a liberal starts calling you "faggot".
