Glue Dave. Glue should be top of the list, plastic solvents good for affecting the lungs, cyano good for attaching you to everything except what you were trying to glue.

How come the manufacturer of your Tee shirt made such an obvious spelling error?

The last few months have brought me two knee operations, pneumonia with diabetic complications, and for the last few weeks (out of the blue) a cervical disc bulge C4-C5 causing neck shoulder and arm pain with finger tingling. Hopefully it will clear up in a few weeks and before the next plague arrives. Ah well I know my problems are fairly minor compared to others on here but it's still depressing and especially so as it's my right arm/hand (no modelling).

I sometime wonder how anyone ever survives into old age given the myriad ailments that come our way? Moan over  O0

My last head injury about 6 years ago I had 5 mri scans in 6 hours. Numerous x rays on my head and spine then spent a night awake in hospital with 2 teeth hanging down the back of my mouth waiting for the on call dentist who turned up 10am the next morning. I has been tachycardic all night and believe it or not they discharged me at 3pm that day. I had an ambulance turn up at 6pm to take me back on when they realised I was supposed to have been transfered to the head injury ward! Not that I cared....

They had dosed me up on morphine before I had left and I didn't know I was on morphine!  Spent another 3 days in hospital then a year going to memory clinics. Fun

Just curious if any fellow members have ever had or known someone to be treated for head and neck cancer. i was recently diagnosed with cancer of an unknown primary in base of tongue following two surgeries to remove swollen lymph nodes in neck, one was cancerous, PET scan does not reveal primary, but oncologist has ordered 6 weeks radiation and chemo. This whole thing started when a swollen lymph node appeared on my neck in June, first they said it was dental, then said it was glandular fever, finally referred to Musgrove and had initila lymph node removed, then they did a radical neck dissection and removed 39 lymph nodes from the left side of my neck, now starting chemo and radiation which they say has a very curable prognosis but was wondering if any other members have been down this road.

Seems forever, since I posted, but good news, saw my oncologist last week and got the all clear. I am back to work and lost 30 lbs, now I've had to buy new trousers, went from a 38" waist to a 34". Still lacking energy but iron supplements help. I have a dry mouth which is another side effect so it changes the food you enjoy now, but hey ho. Been sitting in the shed wondering where to start again, but the wedding that was put on hold must now go on, mine. We are off to the Algarve for a week in May and will finalise our plans then. thank you for your kind words, and I apologize for my absence but the radiation knocks the wind out of your sails, slept right thru Christmas, to wake on the 27th with anemia, a blood transfusion sussed that out. Many dog walks later I should be fine.

Co-incidentally, I had a text yesterday from my doctor's surgery inviting me to come in for a free shingles vaccination - didnít know such a thing existed.

Just a thought - can you have a single shingle or just one measly measle...?

I had a mump once but it brought all its mates - that was nasty - flat on my back for 3 weeks with a sock stuffed down my pants!  {:-{

my sister had chicken pox and managed to get just 1 spot - me - I waited until in my mid twenties to get it, and was knocked out for over a week- funnily enough I caught it from my mum as she had got shingles.

I have missed loads of time at my boat club, apologies to Stan and all the guys and gals.


I have had a severe back issue that required an ambulance and a full bottle of gas and air just to try and get downstairs <:(  Been on Tramadol and Diazipam to help with that, it seems to have settled down.

I am also having light lightheadedness and I fall over-wouldn't mind if the drink was responsible  :D The docs did a test, stand with your feet together, arms by your sides and close your eyes-I swoon and topple over, she did a relax test and my left knee had no jerk response-I have had an MRI and am awaiting the results, I also go and see a neurologist at the end of Sept.

So, modelling is slow, very slow just pottering and doing 20 mins here and there. I don't trust myself at the boat club, frightened of damaging someones boat/s or falling in the water. I know the guys will look after me, but at the moment I am not feeling well enough. My mate takes me to some comic cons but I am there only for a short while and then I am sat down a lot.

Hopefully something can be sorted and I can get back to enjoying being out and about.

Sorry to hear of your problems Si.
Just do a bit when you can and if
you can get to the club, I'm sure the
guys there will help you to have a
comfortable visit.
Hope the MRI scans are positive and
give the medics something to go on
to get you into a better situation.

OOoops....

Remember when you put down the chainsaw and pick up an axe, keep your eye on the wood and not what your dogs happen to have started a fight over!

First thought was oooo that hurt (profanity not included) then on seeing how much blood was spurting out search for finger which was amazingly still attached :-))

Into house and grab a wad of kitchen roll and stem the bleeding then sit down and wait for the fireworks when swimbo returns. After she did and gave it the once over (ex nurse you see) I was declared not mortally wounded. I declined a trip to the hospital for sutures which she said were needed and opted for Steristrips instead.

Now sat here several hours later and it is throbbing like a good un and still bleeding (which wouldn't happen if I'd listened to advice and had it sutured %) )
