I could read that in one of two ways: either it works very well, or else it's crap.

I tried my MIL's Dr. Ho machine I didn't enjoy the feeling.....I only used it at the instance of MIL to get her to stop pestering me about trying it, not sure such devices are really that useful for non-muscular back neck pain problems, but it got her to stop bothering me about trying it, this was a couple years ago.

She swears by it though.

If you have any sort of nerve, joint pain, etc. it tends to make you over compensate, by leaning forward, to one side etc. This puts extra strain on muscles. Maybe the TENS helps with that. The physio my hubby went to recently and the one I used to go to, both used the TENS machines. All I know is it works for me.

My sis in law has malignant tumours in both lungs, she's 53. Surgeon etc are having a meeting today to work out what they can and can't do for her, they think the tumour in one of her lungs is inoperable. She's a strong woman and will KBO as best she can.

She's my brother's wife so they're here, that's something to be thankful for. It's just life, but it stinks!

Yes. Not that there's ever a right time, but that's far too young to be facing that sort of thing.

Rats, sorry to hear this. My dad contracted TB in a WWII POW camp, ended up having one lung removed.

That is awful news and especially in someone so young. I hope her surgeons and doctors can come up with a good treatment plan. Cancer really sucks

Who would think hernias would require so many doctors...ha ha

The surgeon I saw today, only does open surgery, and he feels laparoscopic would be better, but since he doesn't do laparoscopic surgeries, it's another refferal and another wait....

Yes it does suck and it takes many people too early…far too early.

How are you feeling now SM?

A lot better, thanks JG.

Blood tests are now every two weeks. I think it will take a while to get my hemoglobin and iron back to normal. On 9th December I have an ultrasound and then hopefully a reprieve until an endoscopy in January. Tired of being prodded and poked!

We were gifted an early Christmas present of 3 days in a beach house in Galveston so next Friday through Sunday I will get my relaxing beach and sea air break that I have wanted. I can't wait

Pleased to hear it.

The beach house sounds fab…I could do with something like that. Enjoy.
