Not wd40! you need duck oil, a mate who was a mechanic used to clean his hands in it every day, and his girlfriend used to say he had the softest hands.

First catch your duck - and then squeeze really hard. You may be able to roast what's left...

I take 11 different Meds a day. I am not sure they work but while they are fighting among themselves I try to live a normal day one at a time. As we get older we pay for our body abuse when we were younger in spades, & the price gets higher the older you get. I doubt that it is Gout Dave as Gout comes & goes, I hope you get it fixed soon though. Mick B.

Has anyone had a carpal tunnel release operation? It would be interesting to compare experiences, I have had both mine done in the last 6 months, and wish I had left well alone, both wrists are worse now than before they started....
 ( Was going to try duck oil on wrists but fell in pond trying to apprehend duck....)

Today I have tiled floors

it is a small operation if done by a good surgeon

I went to the clinic at 9:00 am. I left at 4 o'clock.

I never had pain

I have a little tingling

Is Bluebird ok?
« Reply #213 on: June 30, 2013, 07:12:42 PM »

I was looking through some old posts recently and realised that one of our members 'Bluebird' hasn't made an appearance for a long time. Is he okay? I was enjoying his build of HMS Exeter but he hasn't been active on the Mayhem since March, just thought somebody might know if he is alright.
Regards

            YES

Tonight I telephoned John and he is fine. He has not been well so was unable to come onto the site for a long time.

He thanks you for your enquiries and was pleased you thought about him.

Gazou, nice to hear your operation was a success. I hope it remains pain free for a long time.

Nick if you can't get Duck Oil try Toilet Duck  {-)

Just had my 10year vaccination boosters today, can't believe I've been in the RAF for that long.
Typically in a very military way, they gave me 4 injections at once, well 2 in each arm one after the other!
Understandably I left the medical section with very sore arms, I've currently had the pleasure of being vaccinated against Yellow fever, Diptheria, Polio, and Tetenus. But I've just woken up and realised that I'd been out for more than a couple of hours,  now I know why they kept an eye on us in basic training when they did that 10 years ago! :o  I feel a lot better now, all they said I could get was flu like symptoms and aching/swollen arms, glad I went back to my room and not to the gym!

Times have changed.
 
In the land of Oz, I Recall when I got my 'shots'
 
It was shirts off and we all lined up down the hall of the RAP in a Que to get all the current shots about six from memory.
At the first door your arm was swabbed and the first jab applied.
Now this where time and motion and economy was applied.
The syringe was unscrewed which left the needle still in your arm, you went to the next door where a new syringe was screwed on and another shot was injected.
This was repeated down the hall at each door until all shots had been injected.
 
You walked out at the end with the Sergeant showing us how to swing our arms to reduce the soreness and swelling the hero's who didn't, paid for it with sore arms later, not to mention those toughie's who fainted along the way.

Think of all the needles that were saved and only one hole in your arm.
That was military precision and efficiency, Imagine doing that today  %% %% %%

Anyone know a cure or relief from a trapped nerve in the shoulder?
I think I broke the 'string' in my shoulder / arm changing a tyre on the motor
last week... ( blowout at 70mph! )

My arm's killing me, been crying like a girl all weekend.  <:(

My old Uncle used to hang off a door, ie, grasp the top of the door with both hands and lift your feet off the floor, works for a bad back, so might do the same for a shoulder. I think the idea is to relieve pressure by allowing joints to 'open up' slightly....
