    Thanks, Cuddles.

    I'll look into it, and especially the carbs.

    I'm needing to find things I can eat, in case they put me on Lupron later, (if my PSA numbers climb above 'X') and it screws up my glucose numbers, as it's known to do for some/many.

    Sweated all night again, but had my wife and my German Shepherd Dog nearby. As well as my wife's aging poodle, and my younger son's Norwegian elkhound came in to land on me a couple times to say, "Hello!!" as well.

    Thanaks for the link.

    hey moose , it's been a long time and i believe your not too well so i guess i'll kick off with my genuine well wishes .. i haven't read the whole thread and i doubt i will mate but i get the gist .
    i can understand your frustration with the medical institution , even here in oz where really , some say not , we have an excellent system . we are deducted a percentage from our taxes and everyone has accessible medical help . as you know i've had a serious accident and after six months of operations and home after care it hasn't cost me a cent ..certainly the lucky country moose .
    i am now in the queue for further operations and it's a long shuffling line but there's certainly far more worthy than me . so take heart moose and i hope your very well encouraged with the generous feedback you have recieved from ICMAG members .. be strong moose and if you can't , then be funny !!! lol

    I am glad that you are home.

    I chuckled at your experience with hospital security. A nurse threatened to call security on me in emerg because I was curled up in a ball on the floor of the waiting room in agony with kidney stones. We had been there for a hour or so by that time and I couldn’t handle sitting in a chair any longer. My wife fiercely suggested that they could just give me a bed.

    How is the wheat grass on carbs? Does it carry any of the reputation of contributing to joint pain, as many these days assert re. wheat, in general??

    When you got a little time I recommend looking into wheatgrass powder as a supplement. It contains almost all the nutrients the body needs and may help you recover from the op- stress etc. - and lots of amunition for better health in general. It also contains iron and is easy on the tummy. it tastes like crap but not to the point that it makes you gag. It´s also availablee in capsules - in case you can´t handle the taste at all
    emu oil is great for surgical wounds - it really speeds up the healing, amongst other things.

    I'll read a bit at the link you posted tomorrow. I had gotten up to replace the back-up battery in my alarm clock upstairs, and had a bit of energy, so here I am.

    Though I feel the energy fading a bit.

    Meanwhile, I was gong to finish the story above, and include a call to and from the off-hours triage nurse line at the hospital I was at.

    My temp when I quit shivering this evening, after arriving home from the airport, was 101.5; highest it's been yet, and right AT the trigger point they said I should call the nurses or go to the ER if it got OVER 101.5 f.

    While were on the phone, a preliminary result form my urine culture landed in my portal, and ... Weez was right.. "Mixed flora" are present at 11,000 to 50,000, but I'd have to go back and check context. I can't recall their volume the culture was sampled in, re. population; not the volume I gave to them, but what ever they grew the stuff in.

    From there the nurse described how they go about attempting to identify the various critters, then do a sensitivity test wit the little guys, in multiple trays, to see which antibiotic kills them most effectively. Pretty cool, and potentially thorough stuff!!

    Anyway, I hope to hear back by Monday or so, to fid out what would kick this thing's butt most effectively... soon.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I'll finish the story re. my son and an over-zealous youngster of a cop later. I feel my energy waning quickly again, and don't want to drive the temp back up.

    No results from the urine culture yet; should've been done. Not sure why it's not, unless it points to something someone missed, and they're sheepish, or what they thought might be sufficient after the 300 yd. run-around, ended up not being enough.

    I confronted a VERY young airport cop, who hassled my younger son twice for waiting for us, after he'd already told the lock-step revenuing motherfucker what was gong on with me. More details on that release of anger toward enforcers lacking in discretion, who see policy as inflexible ALL the time.

    I'm headed to lay down; I'm fucked up..

    Town car at 3:40 P.M. this afternoon, half-hour or less later at SeaTac, flight scheduled to rev the turbines at 6:35 P.M.

    Gonna' close the drapes, crawl into bed with my pups, and do some sort of substance that increases amnesia and/or acceptance.

    Nurse wrote this A.M. to tell me the blood draw results I'd read last night; I'm apparently anemic now. As a long-time seriously dedicated carnivore, it's a 1st of significant proportion, so despite a fair amount of iron in the items typically in my vegan diet, I'm now shoveling chopped spinach for a mid-morning snack, and another forum member, limited in their resources, is intending to send some reportedly medicinal well water containing high levels of iron.

    I had thought I was fighting this thing pretty hard, and who knows what the pathology reports, post-op, might've been without that effort? But it's feeling like "2 steps forward, and 3 backward" at the moment. I'm coming to resent the whole struggle. Seriously.

    Thanks for your help and kindness, buzz.

    My mouse is packed, and difficult to copy & paste links without it. That said;

    'Sometimes You're the Windshield, Sometimes you're the Bug' comes to mind.

    Lots to decide in the near future, I suspect.

    Take care.

    Began a 7-day set of Cipro 500 mg last night; had a nearly immediate improvement to some functions, though far from 'out of the woods.'

    Did some reading re. surgery-acquired infections to esp. include peritineum; it's widely used, and believed to be effective.

    Scrolled down to the side-effects; damned near a duplication or mirror image of the symptoms I'm trying to get rid of, including nausea, sweats, rapid heart rate, etc.; fucking lovely week ahead, based on that perusal.

    Sweated more last night than ever before, and that's saying something. Pillow, sheets, etc. incredibly drenched. With that kind of effluent through the pores, perhaps the up-side is that I'll save a little bit on pads.

    Room's mostly on its way to packed up.

    Tensions were a bit elevated as I regained some amount of energy, but while my wife tends to avoid controversy head-on, often leaving those moments to me due to my directness, she intends to lay out the reality of the meaning and ultimate costs, re. my 2 older children; that door is now permanently welded closed... with just cause.

    I plan to wait a bit after our return home, but when my lifting capacity is a bit better, I'll likely be headed to the bush by myself, with my best friend the German Shepherd. Lots of contemplating to do at this point. Lots, There's a certain freedom felt when you get the news that the odds are in the Grim Reaper's favor. While I've always been fairly direct, I'm even more so now. I figure I just lost 99.9% of any reasons to tolerate ANY bullshit.

    Friend in the Yukon Territory sent out an email to some of the Hippie School folks from the '70s, and there came a small flood of support.

    That's the news, here at Lake Waubegone.

    Add whoever told you that fever, dick farts and leakage are normal recovery to your list of incompetents.
    I'm not a doctor either, but I do read a lot.
    You'll be OK now.

    I'd been reporting wack-a-doodle unpleasant and varied symptoms since release from hospital; I guess they finally decided to read them.

    Blood results show notably elevated white cells, depleted hemoglobin, and depleted hematocrit, among other conversational topics.

    I'm not a Doc, but I know what that means....

    I suspect many of these folks prefer ignorant patients who don't complain, and don't know too much.

    He says I should be feeling better by morning; we'll see.

    7" cooking surface lab hot-plate (no stir function) arrived at my house today. First time I spent $350 for a hot plate, but suspect this one not only tends to stay at marginal/lower, predictable, reliable temps, but won't have me cussing under my breath quite as much.

    So, now I can extract low-temp THC-A when I return home.

    Uncertain if I'll be doing follow-up care at the same clinic, other than for a 3-month mtg. Bad taste left in my mouth after this bullshit. "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice,...." Well, we'll leave that alone for now.....

    Surgeon finally ordered blood draw and urine culture to rule out infection this afternoon at about 3 pm; the day before we fly out.

    Shaved and made a beeline to the hospital with Lyft shortly before 4 pm.

    Screener at the door said "which lab, there are two", like I'd know.. Referred me to info booth with clock ticking at 25 past 4. Lab says there is no order on file.

    By now I am out of breath and more than a little disgruntled.

    Directed to urology clinic in another building, but due to security re. COVID, the elevator won't take us there; end up at parking in basement floor, then back up to floor it WILL let us access, where security says I need to control my irritation & volume, or she'll have to call security; I told her there are times that irritation is appropriate!! Looked at her re. the threat of the goon squad as though to say, "Do I LOOK like I give a flying fuck if you call your goons.

    My wife said I was never over the top to warrant such shit; they simply don't want someone orally outlining incompetence from their Prim Donna staff. Fuck 'em...

    Back up in the elevator, which won't let us out on the floor with the lab (*there's only ONE lab, btw), so we end up jousting with the power tripping protector of decorum and superficial appearances once more; by now she knows she's ot intimidating me with her nicely pressed uniform and fake-ass badge. She wants me on my way)..

    We take another foot journey back to the main building to find nirvana by way of elevators that WILL now take us back to the lab. We wait for the elevator for a while. I'm sweating, breathing is impacted, and my fever's back.

    At that point most of what I might've given for a urine sample is either in my Depends, or sweated out; I gave them less than 1 oz. of pee, and in drawing blood, my typically easy-to-hit veins on my dominant arm are holding back, so they go to my lesser arm for limited pay-dirt.

    I told the lab folks to tell the urology oncology clinic that had I NOT had to hike 300 yards all over God's green acre, one building or floor to the next, doing someone else's job for them who's paid quite well, they MIGHT have had a greater urine sample.

    By the time we were back to the room, I had no breath, was dizzy & nauseous, nearly puked, and figured the Grim Reaper had expedited the schedule.

    Folks if these are the people we intend to have save us, we're already fucked, big time.

    Surgeon phoned my cell after we got back & wanted to dis cuss symptoms that are likely littered in spades throughout my e-portal. Says my blood draw indicates I'm a bit dehydrated. You think the write-up above MIGHT have something to do with that

    Nearly puked upon return to the room, and dissolved the Zophran 4 mg on my tongue, And waited for the symptoms to at least settle down a bit, then, shaking, I hit the sack, drank some H2O in large quantity, and concluded once again, that this is NOT my planet, I DON'T belong here, and these are NOT my People.

    Fucking 'professionals'!!! So many dollar signs in their eyes they sometimes can't see their mission clearly. "Come the revolution....."
