RE: Thinking ahead re: back problems

Just be aware that Inversion tables are contraindicated with many people. GERD, Hiatal Hernia, High blood pressure, glaucoma, and pregnancy as examples.

RE: Thinking ahead re: back problems

Thanks for the support folks. I am trying most of your suggestions as I speak/type. I have, and probably most important, started loosing about 58 pounds. After I reach 200 pounds, I'll re-evaluate my weight. I'm down to 244 and it's been about 6 weeks. I found a great diet, it combines exercise and determination. I do three PUSH AWAYS every day. I push away from the table before I feel full and before anyone else. That way I get used to not feeling full and I don't finish everyone's left overs. There are a few other things but that is I feel, the most important item. I can't wait until I can do something that that requires twisting or turning. I can't reach sideways for something on a kitchen shelf. I have to move until I'm directly in front of the Item an can reach straight ahead. I can't even reach across the desk to the printer and grab a paper right now. Try swimming or walking or just about any exercise that can strengthen your "CORE". I know what is needed but my "core"? I will be going to my DR on Monday or Tuesday for a referral or to urgent care and have them refer me if he doesn't. My BIL is a Chiropractor and he has a neat machine that decompresses the spinal column. That is what I need for temporary relief but so far my HMO won't refer me outside the system to a back cracker. Had a long talk with my DR, he believes that there are many times a chiropractor is a good solution. What he dislikes is that they can tell in advance how many visits you need before the relief is permanent. I kind of agree with him, but then again DR's pull the same thing. When talking to the DR and the PT they keep coming up with "Well a recent Study ...", I hate that. Awhile back a Neck Surgeon", use to be ENT DR, told me what caused my persistent cough. It was from a recent study, put me on pills for GERDS. Turned out he was wrong and both my wife and I had disagreed with him at the time but he had the results of a Recent Study. Now I tell DRs or medical personnel who offer recent study findings what I learned in college forty some years ago. "Recent studies have proven that recent studies are useless". Sometimes we have to go with them but often the old tried and true methods are best. Thanks again and Bless all of you. Sounds like you're on the right track with the weight loss. Walking and swimming are excellent for low-impact, muscle strengthening. I hope you're feeling much better, soon! Blessings and prayers to you and your family!

RE: music

Music is music ... Rap is not. It has nothing to do with the people who listen to it. There is nothing creative about some voice swearing as loud as s/he can to a repetitious beat that has not one iota of creativity in it. Music takes rhythm, pitch, tune, harmony, soul, creative juice, and as often a voice. When any person no matter what caliber of voice and lack of pitch can 'scream nasty' above a beat any child could keep banging a stick or a spoon, it should never be classed as music ... well, maybe it will be falsely classified as music, but it took a lawsuit to do it rather than creativity. I guess everyone is entitled to an opinion but statements like that are a bit closed minded. Music is a form of expression. Whether or not you like a particular genre is opinion not fact. I don't like gangsta rap either, but a lot of people do and there is power in that particular genre whether you like the message or not. if you don't like it, don't listen to it, but that statement is a bit akin to saying people of different color are not people. Like what you like. Let others do the same and stop judging. No one is asking you to listen to it. I am sure some folks on here have been asked to turn down Elvis at one point in time in their lives. Earlier generations of closed minded folks didn't want to call that music either. Well-stated. If you don't understand or like it- don't listen, but please don't judge something that you have no real knowledge of.

RE: Totaled my rig

If that happened to me, I would never pull a TT again. Heck, I would have to quit, anyway because my dogs would have nothing to do with an RV after surviving that.

RE: Thinking ahead re: back problems

Just my 2 cents. From personal experience, I would lose the weight and try low impact,(swimming) exercises to strengthen your muscles. That would be the least invasive way to go. I know it's easy to make excuses to NOT exercise and diet, but it can be done. You have to decide.

RE: Multiple cats in travel trailer full time

They sound like animal hoarders to me. That is always a bad situation for the animals. It's been my experience that unless law enforcement gets involved, there's not much you can do. They are delusional, and think they are taking good care of the animals.

RE: Pain meds not cutting it!!

Keep us updated. Hoping that you feel better, soon. When you call the doctor, tell them about your constipation, too.

RE: Anybody flush their black tank with a hose onto the ground?

I guess they already have hepatitis, dysentery, E. Coli infection, and intestinal parasites-so I guess it wouldn't bother them to expose themselves, and everyone else to that filth. Chances are that she hasn't washed her hands for a long time, anyway. Disgusting!!!!

RE: Pain meds not cutting it!!

I'm sure they told you to call the doctor if you were having problems. You ARE having problems. They have an on-call person. Call them!

RE: Sous vide New York steak

Yes, we are trained to think that meat needs cooked to 160 to be safe. The reality is time matters too. 130 for two hours is the same as 160 for five minutes. If you follow the published charts you won't have any issues. It sounds as if you could teach people a lot about Sous Vide cooking. Here's a tip that I've seen used very successfully on this very forum. Start a cottage industry doing, 'SVG'(Sous Vide Gatherings). Go ahead and use this forum to advertise. You might think it's a no-no to advertise on this forum, but not so for these demonstrations. Post the links here so that forum members will be taken to your sponsor's ads. Good luck, I hope you're as successful as other's have been.

RE: Sous vide New York steak

This thread is about Sous vide. It was invented in 1799 and cane into wide use in restaurants in the 60s. Many chains are using SV including Chipotle Grill, Panera Grill and many more. If you eat in restaurants you have probably eaten food cooked SV and didn't know it. I use my crock pot which I have always carried. The controller is 3" X 3" and fits inside the crock pot. No extra space required. If you don't want to try something different that saves money and makes food taste better that's entirely up to you. We are camping this weekend and having steaks tonight. I'll put them in the SV about 4:00 and eat whenever everybody wants. Sounds as if someone owes you an apology, but I'll be real surprised if you get it!

RE: Before a scheduled surgery

Some possible aids: 1. Dulcolox suppository. They are over the counter, you do NOT take them by mouth! 2. Warm prune juice mixed with 15cc of milk of magnesia, 3. Start with 1/2 bottle of magnesium citrate. Also,over the counter but you may have to ask the pharmacist to get it for you. 4. Last resort is an enema. Good luck.

RE: Sous vide New York steak

I built my own Sous Vide controller for $40 to use with a crockpot. It is wonderful. I use mine camping often. I prep the steaks or 2-3" thick pork chops or chicken breasts in the vacuum bag before leaving. Turn the crock pot on about 2:00. Throw the meat in around 3:30-4:00 then you can eat anytime you want 6:00 to 8:00. Doesn't matter you cant over cook them. Tough cuts of steak like round or sirloin you just leave them in at 130 for 5 hours and they are as tender as filet. Perfect medium. How easy is it to cook a 2" thick pork chop on the grill and get it perfectly cooked through? You will never have a tastier,juicier chicken breast. I like it for big groups as I can Sous Vide 10 chicken breasts, have them ready and finish them whenever everybody is ready. I have done Ribs for 36 hours. Best I ever made. I usually brown on a cast iron pan with EVOO and butter. Ribs were finished on a hot grill. It's always amazing how people will knock something that they know nothing about. I don't know why people are grousing about taking 2 hours to make a beautiful meal-I guess they're used to hot dogs.

RE: Your best homemade french fry techniques?

Maybe something like this? It's not a deep fryer, but I've heard it does a good job on French fries.

Before a scheduled surgery

A lot of folks have been updating us on their various scheduled surgeries. I pray they are all doing well. Anyhow, I maybe should've mentioned this BEFORE their surgery. One of the most annoying things post-op is constipation, from the pain meds and immobility. They never tell you to do this BUT, it's a good idea to have a good BM before the day of surgery. Whatever works for you, use it. Now, you don't want to get 'the runs', but you want to start your hospital stay with a 'clean slate', (if you know what I mean). It's no fun being uncomfortable with constipation and a new hip or knee. If you get constipated, you'll have to get a suppository or enema-so, try and stay regular and you'll do better!

RE: Hurricane to hit the East Coast on the 4th of July !

I have lived inland all of my life. Never experienced a tornado, hurricane or earthquake. I may well have a media hyped fear about these disasters, and I know the old-timers don't worry until it's very bad. Anyhow, I will say a prayer that everyone, (human and otherwise) remain safe. Xw2. You a blessed to have missed these things. We have had our share of blizzards and flooding, but I am very frightened of the other natural disasters, (or the PC term: weather event).
