skinny

TLC Making the perfect human....

Look at your hands and tell me if your index finger is longer than your ring finger.
This shows that you were exposed to estrogen. If your index is shorter than the ring this shows the effect of testosterone that the fetus was exposed to in the womb.
Tests are being done, in males,...measuring the differences in the finger sizes and the actual length....to show who is the better athlete.

Just curious.

Since I have the same hands as my father (I have better nails) ...my index finger is shorter than the ring finger....hmmmm......

I have had enough!

As I sit here contemplating ripping out my spine and fixing it myself.....
I am still waiting for the results of the MRI.....
I am running out of pain killers.....I have called for more....but again had to leave a message

What do you think it would take to fix it? Couple of steel rods....maybe some hose clamps..... nuts and bolts.....should I use staples or a fine gauge wire to close it back up?

I am sick of hurting, sick of being in the house, sick of not being able to go anywhere....I have just had enough!

I need a PT....know of a good one?

Heard from the Neurosurgeon the MRI results are in....

1. A third-degree sprain completely tears the ligaments. Signs and symptoms may include:

A pop or snap felt or heard at the time of the injury.
Mild to severe pain (pain is sometimes less in a complete tear than in a partial tear).
Severe swelling and bruising (often, but not always).
An unstable joint (feels wobbly or loose).
A grating sound or feeling.
A bulge (sometimes) at the site of a complete tear.
A change in sensation, such as numbness or tingling.
Recovery time for a sprain can vary, depending on a person's age and health and the severity of the sprain. A minor sprain in a healthy person may heal in a few days to a few weeks. A severe sprain can take several months to heal and may never heal completely, resulting in long-term pain, limited movement, deformity and instability of the joint, and repeated injuries.

First aid for a sprain includes rest (immobilization), ice, compression, and elevation. While a minor sprain will often heal well with home treatment, a moderate to severe sprain may require medical treatment, such as a cast or splint, physical therapy, medication, or surgery.

2. With a tear on the outer membrane of a disc.
Each is a flat, circular capsule roughly an inch in diameter and perhaps 1/4-inch thick, made of a tough, fibrous outer membrane called the annulus fibrosus, surrounding an elastic core called the nucleus pulposus.


Gonna have to do three weeks of PT - need to find a good one - hopefully near Rex - I have a membership at Rex Wellness Center - maybe they have one.
