    Ronnie ,The popping id bet my truck on is a result of the vaccine ,, the popping is only in the area that the weird headache accrued ..
    then the rest did seem to escalate rather fast , but the conditions were already there so im not going to say yes or no to the vax.

    Jeff i agree with your vax assessment that its personal and the choice of each to decide for themselves ... my anti vax statement only pertains yo myself... it also appears i have limits on my choice as i did get the vax .. which was probably a good choice with all i have going on with health issues .

    thanks for the prayers ..

    I’m not even sure I took your statement as anti-vax.

    there is a risk with everything we do, everything. Vaccines are no different. They are not a guarantee, promise or cure. They potentially improve ones odds in the face of COVID. Like wearing a bullet proof vest, there’s still ways for the bullet to get through, if it does go through the best, maybe the damage is less. Best, you get a bruise, and walk it off.

    Vaccines have risk, GB, allergies to eggs, 10’s of different known reactions. Everything from a sore arm, to at worst, death. That’s why for me it’s a choice.

    for me the worst thing that has happened with the vaccine is the mandate, and worst yet the reason for the mandate, to protect the vaccinated from the unvaccinated. About the dumbest thing ever said.

    You can’t build trust through fear or penalties, that’s just stupid. Lay out the facts, benefits, possible side effects, do studies (cdc has been inept on this). Politicians and media has destroyed faith, caused problems with providers (MD’s) from using their knowledge and skill to treat. Mis reporting on therapeutics because the wrong person used it, hates right to try in the face of death. Sadly, the sheep buy the narrative, the government interferes in care… people die.


    Again, not trying to get people to vaccinate, however, just pissed off the government of many nations have devised us all

    Good Grief
    Hopefully when they do the procedure in your artery, things will turn around. Prayers sent!

    I would have hoped ,, they couldnt go thru the groin to the hear and ended up going thru the wrist to the heart. . Then meds on top of that .. I felt good till the meds then felt like i did almost when I checked into the ER. Tight breathing , cold sweats .. they stopped the IV at that point and gave a pill of the same med .. things improved a good amount and became manageable . I still could not lay down or elevate my legs . 3 weeks of sleeping sitting in a chair with my head on a pillow on the table stinks . Did at home and the whole time at the hospital ..its also what prevented them from doing the procedure thru the groin .. 6 to 8 hours laying on my back being very still was impossible . Risking a femoral artery blow out . so the wrist was the only option .. the next 2 procedures went inti the throat ,, no idea what they were for .. but were something to do with the heart rhythm stabilization and the AFIB..they have not found and blockages or clots ..

    Im with you on that Jeff ,, politics has turned this into a cluster as it always does ... CDC has done nothing but lie on the numbers in Fl. And were caught sending out incorrect numbers ..

    Dang Vipr, hang in there, they will get you squared away. I can't even imagine trying to sleep sitting up, that only happens to me when I pass out from drinking too much. Then I wake up all cramped up in my knees. Thanks for the update, please keep us informed.

    Have my follow up with the Cardio doc tomorrow . stinking covid quarantine bored the hell out of me , glad thats overwith .
    stupid drugs they gave me make me feel sick , guess i find out tomorrow if I have to take all 10 still , thinking maybe half of them .. my strength has improved , i can now walk to my mail box and back , 200 yards approx. sleep stinks , still up every hour on the hour and sleeping sitting up on the couch . At least i can elevate my legs now .. the swelling has gone down but still numbness in my feet . Weight dropped to 274 and my gut is less than the pic above .. need to get that weight back to where i was before this crap hit me .. between 205 and 220 .. but cant complain excessively went from 316 down to 274 in about 10 in the hospital .. thats a crazy amount to loose that fast , just need the rest to happen about as fast .. all in the gut ,, distention is all fluid. Was reading over my hospital diagnosis and found things they didnt tell me or i didnt here .. they told me in the ICU they suspected i had a silent heart attack in the past . I had pneumonia when i checked in but didnt tell me i had Sepsis also . Both pneumonia and sepsis they said are gone .. im asking the cardio doc tomorrow about that and my feet .

    Good grief! Good thing is your getting better. Wow, you gained that much weight from fluid retention? Hang in there, sounds like you see the light at the end of the tunnel. Thanks for sharing your updated condition.

    Well done
    After my knee operations I was 308lbs now a mere 272lbs. Looking quite sporty really. (yeah right)
    All the best for your recovery

    Yes all that weight came on in my gut in about a 3 month time frame . Thought i was going to have kidney stones again , same symptoms but less weight gain in the gut , hot 245 then . Last stone passed and weight fell off so fast I started eating eveything including the kitchen sink to stop the lose. i thought something was really wrong . Dropped to 192 and stopped losing after passing the last stone . Im guessing 192 s what my body says is my prime weight .
    Problem and difference this time was i had a urinary tract infection and didnt do anything about it and the gut kept getting larger and larger . I finally checked my weight and was 316 pounds .. all i could say is WTF , those scales are messed up .. bought a new scale and got the same 316 .. the funny thing is being all in my belly , my pants size did not change. Then other things kicked in and to the ER i went . Congestive hear failure , pneumonia and sepsis oh boy ! ICU there I went !
    The 10 days in the hospital and the meds all 10 f them im taking now the weight fell off again from 316 down to 272 now . Still more to go . Diuretics i believe helped that .
    Ill say there arent to many pregnant women that can hold a candle to my gut and passing 6 stones in a 2 year period hahahaha .
    Cardio doc says i need another procedure done but cant get it done at the moment , no insurance and I dont qualify for anything to help, and had to shut down my little business of 22 years so income is crap on SS . I took social security early at 62 and medicare doesn't start till 65 ( nice timing huh lol ) and its the meds controlling the heart rhythm , blood pressure and keeping me kicking at the moment . I do have more strength at least so thats a improvement .
    Doc filled all my scripts but requires me to get a primary doc . Not an easy task with out insurance ! Seems like cash isnt king in the medical industry .
    Problem came on the refill of the drug ELIQUIS blood thinner . Walgreens stated the refill for 90 days was 1700 + dollars but being a member of the prescription club and signed of for GoodRX the cost on those is still 500 + dollars .. Screw that im not a multi millionaire ! Well the Doc agrees and is looking for alternatives that dont require weekly or monthly whatever blood testing like the other drugs on the market . Waiting for what they find now .
    Nowmif i can just sleep in my bed instead of sitting more upright on the couch along with sleeping all night , not waking up every hour ill be in good shape hahaha !

    Yeah weight gain stinks especially for someone extremely active and eats pretty healthy . Losing all that weight makes a big difference in the way you feel ..
    how did the knee op. Go , up and running now lol . Hope so ! Keep on going and then you wont add the (yeah right to your comment ) kick the the weight . You will see results in your launch times and 1/4 mile runs .:)

    Doing alright. Still have to force the bending and stretches but the fitness is coming right. It takes about a year to be fully repaired, so I am nearing halfway. The price of gas is climbing quickly $2.62/litre. I can't afford too much of that each month at the moment

    Hang in there! I hate this is happening to you about the scripts, I thought ObamaCare was the best thing since ice cream... and anyone could afford it... As for kidney stones, I've passed two in the past 10 years, and good lord it's not fun. A woman I work passed one last year, she told me it's easier to birth a baby than go through that.

    I was up to 330 as of July, due to bad eating habits. I'm now just under 300 and still going. Want to get down to around 230 if possible, that's a good weight for me. It's slow going, but my right knee isn't giving me fits like it used to. Try the low carb diet, it's works great.
