Hi Laura, For the time being Larry needs your love and assurance that everything will turn out alright. Any bleed in the brain takes time to dissolve. Much rest is called for. Especially in the first few weeks after the stroke.Visit and consult with his medical practi tioners as to what caused the stroke to take steps to prevent another. Go to our website, and check on our internatinal sites. Read everything you can about strokes.
Hi, my Father in Law (Larry) had a stroke last saturday morning. He is 59 and my husband & I flew out to Denver immediately. We saw him Sat pm and were so scared. He had a middle cerebral blockage, most likely caused by a thrown clot from his leg. He also has a patent duct in his heart that they think threw the clot to his brain. Anyof this make any sense to someone? Not me…they are still just words.
He had a left brain stroke and is paralyzed on the right side. his speech is affected as wellas receptive & expressive ephaisia (sp). As of today, he is regaining some control over the right leg. He shuffled (with help) around his bed, is able to eat, and seems to be able to understand verbal commands.
I can’t do anymore now. I guess what i’m looking for is has anyone else been there? What can I do? We live 18 hr drive away, but plan to fly 2x in March and go to Denver for spring break providing we can find help for our kids. Larry is more of a father to me than my own, I can’t imagine how this changes things. Please share your stories. I need some help
Oh yeah, I’m Laura, my husband is Craig. We live in West Michigan with our 5 kids, Audrey 12, Melanie 10, Abby, Carly & Connor 3 1/2.
Thanks in advance
Went to Dr. on Tuesday to talk about options to deal with my post RP, ED issues. The main treatment I wanted to discuss was trying injections, cause with sildenafil citrate 100mg pills i feel not good as few years ago. From what I’ve been reading here the process is usually started in the office and done a couple of times there until the Dr. is comfortable with the dosage and the patience ability to administer the injection.
After he discussed the pros and cons with me he said “well lets set you up with a sample and see if you like it”. With that I thought he was going to give me an injection in the office and observe the results. Wrong!
He went into one of his cabinets and got out a sample packet of Caverject Impulse and a demo penis.
He gave me a five minute training session on the demo penis on how to administer the injection and went over the instructions on how to use the Caverject injector and dial in the proper dose. Now mind you this doesn’t seem to be that difficult to do but this isn’t how I thought it would go(kinda liked it though)?
This sample injector has a total dosage of 20mcg and he told me to only set the injector for 10mcg and save the remaining 10mcg in the refrigerator for use at another time. Well when I got home and read the instructions in the package it says to use all the medication within 24 hours or discard it. It also says in the instructions that the initial couple of injections should be done in the Dr’s office and the patient should not go home until the erection had subsided.
I haven’t used it yet, I was going to wait for the weekend. Has anyone else experienced this approach or should I be nervous?
Well it didn’t take much for a scottish lass like Mary Qqeen of Scots get the run put on her out of England. Is Whitegoose any different. You have to watch for those hotblooded scottish lassies. Just different directions. Ireland is nay exempt.
Hi to all of you.Are you doing ok. I’m fine. Just getting over the flu or some thing like that. Is it possible for a person to get flu like symtoms after recieveing a cortizone injection? I had gotten so sick about an hour after, and was in bed the next day, all day. It was for my hip.
Gwenda, I wish your visit weren’t going to occur in the middle of our “Tech Week !!!” I’d give a lot to make the trip to Washington to see you, but that date is out of the question. I would be strung up and hung out to dry, I’m afraid. It’s still a long way off, so maybe something will give. Love,

As you know, I’m staying in England at present. I will be returning home in late April BUT … the good news is that I’m stopping off in the US for a couple of weeks on the way home. Mainly, I will be visiting a dear friend of mine in Washington State, but wouldn’t it be great if some of us could meet together while I’m there?!?!
Dates are not definite as yet, but it would be in the latter part of April. I fly into LA from London and spend the night there before flying north the following day. Let me know if this would be possible.
Niacinamide is also known as nicotinic acid. Nicotinic acid is the former name of niacin. Largely as a marketing strategy,(because people associated nicotinic with cigarete smoking) Manufacturer’s took the Ni from Nicotinic, the ac from acid and the in from vitamin and renamed the product niacin. From a chemical standpoint, it is the same substance. nicotinic acid is niacin that has had a chain of carbon, oxygen, and cloride sdded to it. Under either form, it does reduce cholesteral(as any of the B vitamins do) and can cause flushing or itching of skin.a baby aspirin before the first dose of niacin of the day can reduce the side effects. Niacin has to be taken in large doses to be effective for this purpose. Doses are generally divided between 3 doses taken with meals, while nicotinic acid(niobid etc.) can be taken in one dose usually at bedtime. The flushing is thus less frequent, but only because the dose is less frequent. Liver function tests should be done periodically while on niacin therapy. It does not appear to cause muscle damage(measured by liver enzymes) that the statins do, but it can build
up to toxic levels in the liver. Niacin (Vitamin b3) deficiencies can cause a host of problems primarily affecting the skin and tolerance to sunlight. Kate
