  1. Cancer would not shrink, so in that regard you are in good shape.
  2. Speaking of the dentist, I have an appointment this Monday to replace a crown which popped off. I will let everyone know what they soaked me for.
  3. My physician has told me in the past not to take my blood pressure on these store machines as they are not accurate.
  4. I used to go to this dentist and when I was at my appointment, they suddenly told me that they no longer accept my insurance. I needed a bunch of work and they developed a 4 stage treatment plan. The total cost would have been $5,889. I told them that someone must be going on a big trip and that I would need a second mortgage to pay the bill. They laughed and said I could work out a payment plan. I told them I would have to go to a dentist who accepted my insurance and they just grimaced a bit as they may have thought I was just another patsy.
  5. My blood pressure is typically normal, but I used to go to this one dentist who took my blood pressure, and it too was elevated. The dentist can make anyone's blood pressure rise, if you consider what they may be doing to you, both physically and to your wallet.
  6. If you need money to eat, I will send you $50 through Venmo or PayPal. Just send me your address. No need to pay me back either. Just consider it a gift. I don't want to see anyone go without food.
  7. The 5 year survival rate means who is still alive 5 years after treatment had begun for a disease such as cancer.
  8. I get the gnawing feeling myself and I have had many tests and no serious cause has ever been found.
  9. My GI physician has told me stomach cancer is rare and mostly seen in the elderly .
  10. My physician told me that inflammation is of major concern in heart disease.
  11. I have had an umbilical hernia for years. My belly button sticks out and you can push it in, and it is soft. When I was in the ER in June 2021 when I was dehydrated, and they took a CT scan with contrast of my abdomen and pelvis and mentioned the hernia and just said it was small and unremarkable. My GI physician told me they get worse when you are overweight and not to do anything unless they get painful or get hard. My best friend has one too.
  12. Many years ago my wife was hospitalized for food poisoning. She became ill and was vomiting and having diarrhea. My wife became dehydrated and that is why she ended up in the ER. The ER physician told us that food poisoning typically is over quickly and onset occurs usually in 6 to 24 hours.
  13. You can get the help. You just need to persevere.
  14. I have been through a number of traumatic situations in my life. My mother, father and uncle all passed away in a years time. I was held up at gunpoint and was told if I moved I was dead. The gun was held at my temple. I have been through 2 head on collisions. In one of them I had a near death experience where my whole life passed before my eyes before the 50 mph impact. My friend got murdered a longtime ago and he was only married a year and had a nine month old child. His wife was never the same.
