It pinches a nerve every now and then,twice the disc's buldged and it was so bad i was miserable even in bed..Thankfully 6-8 weeks of hell and it slipped back in... It's much different than my experiences with R...

hi my freinds, quickly cause i'm on my way out the door. Steve did great during surgery. They did have to take some of his bowel out as it was attached to his skin.

Great news my friends! The report says NO cancer anywhere, in his other kidney,lungs, pelvis etc. Now the Urological surgeon will review the CD under a magnifying glass but so far so good. Looks like surgery is due for tomorrow ((holding my breath)) please keep the prayers coming our way. brenda

I just think giving one's actual name out is kinda risky especially if you don't sign a disclosure. I don't mind someone using my screen name.

Why names at all?
