Corrmhoa, I didn't want to hijack GV's log and have him have to look at my man world suitcase story forever..But since you asked...

Man world suitcase= ball bag
Aliens= unwanted fluid sacs

And good luck to you sir tomorrow with your issue. I wish you well.

Good. I was trying really hard not to get the picture of an alien facehugger from the movie wrapped around someone's junk, so I had to ask.

Thanks. Hopefully I'll find something out, I'm not sure the GP will know either, but at least she can clear me to lift. There is always Wednesday with the cardiologist...I hate waiting.

You are funny (referring to poking comment)!
I won't even ask about a junkhugger.

Waiting for an okay to lift or otherwise sucks. I'm in that bag(no pun intended) right now too. Damn urologist/surgeon told me no lifting for a week after my snipping and I just say that's a bunch of fargin booger balls(the pun thing). Hope all is well.

Just thought I'd touch base.

My GP continued my exercise ban Friday. Nothing that raises my heart rate substantially... It has been 3 weeks now.

She says that I have been flagged for medical management, but she doesn't know what that means. She is expecting the cardiologist to send her homework. She is apparently getting more homework than me out of this, which is bad for her as I've been spending a fair amount of time getting tests done.

Anyway, cardiologist tomorrow. Until then, signed up for crunchyroll, watching anime online. Cheaper than buying the sets a season at a time, and keeps me from drinking myself to death out of boredom. My wife thinks I should get some non-exercise related hobbies.

Hope you are doing well. Ice! What are you doing to keep from going nuts? I went on a video binge for both of my vasectomies.

Hobbies are good, I suppose. But the low-stress ones that don't involve physical movement is generally boring. Carpentry is a good one and if you stick to little boxes and bird houses, you're good. But a lot of the power tools get bloody heavy depending on what you want to do with it. Hand tools may seem the way to go but I find sawing to be a conditioning exercise.

What else - golfing (no), fishing (I suppose but there is the potential for alcoholism), strip clubs (alcoholism and sexual frustration), low stress hiking (possibly)...

Bird watching can be pretty dull too, how about tracktor racing?

So I just need strip tractor racing as a spectator sport and I'm set...I'm sure it is on the internet somewhere...and you really should touche minimal's tush like that Crushed. This is a family forum.

Anyway, back from the cardiologist. He reviewed the stress test, echocardiogram, and the angiogram, and he believes that I have pulmonary fibrosis, as something is blocking the blood flow during the stress test and he figures it must be lungs. He danced around it a bit, as he was not going to diagnose me with something outside his field, but he isn't going to see me again unless the lungs check out clean. He said it may just be my asthma is not responding to ventolin but with the stress test results it is more likely the lungs are just too stiff to let the blood flow through properly. He didn't explain why nitro works.

So back to the drawing board. Well, back to my GP, I suppose she doesn't want to be called a drawing board. At least he cleared me for exercise, though he recommended slowly working back in any cardio.

I'm going to be offline mostly for the next couple weeks, I'll log in if I can.

TTFN

Dare I ask why you went back for a second?

Take care.

They reattached. It is rare, but happens often enough it is wise to get a post-vas sperm count. I was low, then low-normal, then a higher low-normal three months after and the doc could feel everything was reconnected. My brother said I should try cutting off a pinky finger to see if is grew back as well. I decided to just redo the vasectomy first, and if it reconnected again I would think about trying a pinky. So far so good. 7 years no pregnancies. It is a new PR since reaching adulthood.

Hoping no pinkies are getting cut. I was going nuts but the lifting now is good. Two cuts in the nether regions...ouch.

I giggled like a little kid. Glad to hear you're at least cleared to workout. It's always a little bit frustrating though, when you have to go back to the drawing board.

Any PR is a good one!
