General Discussion / phantom pains
« on: May 05, 2013, 11:37:47 AM »
hey out there. I know that most of us have and would like to get rid of phantom pains well i have found something that has help me out and has gotten rid of about 95% of mine, and now want to state IAM NOT A DOCTOR OR DO I REPRESENT ANY MEDICAL FIELD OR PERSON OR CLAIM TO BE ONE. But here is what i am using and it is EDTA KELADINE CREME.  i use it every day and it has slowed down my phantoms especially a night after i take my liners off, i started it to clean my system of calcium build up on my heart  valves and it is working. i get mine from  BISCAYNE INERNATIONAL.IN south portland me. and you  can also find it under EDTA  KEDLAINE  CREME  on your seach bar. you will also find that they claim it to be a scam, but so far it is working for me, now i do not know if it will work for you or anyone else, but to me it is worth a try out

NEW SUBJECT: I know that i haven't been on much lately. i do come on every night but don't post much, just haven't had much to say.

« on: December 27, 2011, 12:23:27 PM »
Got up and but my legs on and thought i had both of them locked good, walked out of the bedroom and  made a couple of steps and my left leg decided to take a hike down the hallway on me, and i went down right on the end of my left stump, so now i am riding me wheels for a while until the swelling goes down and i can get my legs on again, don't feel bad about it for it is not the first time this has happened to me, it just makes me madder than all get out for not checking it better before i got up, good thing i have some pain med here at the house, had to take one to  knock the pain down a little so that i  could stand it, what was bad was i was carring a glass of water with me to the kitchen and it went all over the place and i was sitting in the middle of  it all cussing like a mule skinner for being so dang stupid. And not only that i am busier than a one armed paper hanger out in my shop and this is gonna put me back some more.

General Discussion / two topics to talk about,
« on: September 21, 2010, 05:21:47 PM »
1. if you feel that you are going to need a scouter in the near of for seen future like in a couple of year, my leg person has told  me to get you doctor to write a persciption for before the first of the year and if you wait until after the first you will have  to rent it for 13 months before medicare will pay for it. and have your doctor state that it is for in house use and not out side, he didnot explain the difference but did stress the indoor usage.

2. just found out that a old shipmate of mine had to have a BKA of his left leg due to diabies, and as usuall the hospital did not put him in touch with any support group or individual amputee to help him through this, was on the phone with him and his wife for over  two hours answering their questions and i know by now they have more that need to be answered, he has great spirits and is planning a HOLLOWEEN costume, and as usual CAPT KID pegleg one.

« on: August 31, 2010, 08:04:38 PM »
Just got this from a congressman, and will try and type it out for you all,

in 2010

Meducare will cut reimbursements to inpatient psychiatric hospitals

in 2011
Medicare cuts to home health agencies begin
Weathier seniors ($85K/$170K) begin paying higher part D premiums
mEDICARE CUTS BEGIN TO AMBULANCE SERVICES, AMBULATORY SURGERY CENTERS, DIAGNOSTIC LABS AND DURABLE MEDICAL EQUIPMENT
SENIORS ARE PROHIBITED FROM PURCHASING POWER WHEELCHAIRS UNLESS THEY FIRST RENT FOR 13 MONTHS
NEW MEDICAR CUTS TO LONG TERM CARE HOSPITALS BEGIN
NEW MEDICARE CUT TO HOSPITALS AND CUT TO NURSING HOMES BEGIAN (FY12)
MEDICARE ADVANTAGE CUTS BEGIN. PARTICIPATING SENIORS WILL FACE PREMIUM INCREASES, BENEFIT CUTS OR BOTH

IN 2012
MEDICAR REIMBURSEMENTS FOR DIALYSIS TREATMENTS ARE CUT
