"What different types of NSAID's have you all tried and which seemed to work the best for you? I did Naproxen for about 6 months and have now been on Meloxicam for 2 months, neither seems to have helped any."

"In all honesty, I don't blame you one bit. It would be a shame to continue with the surgery and then something not go smoothly and totally mess up your vacation plans.  I have my surgery Feb 23rd, and I plan to send some…"

Kathy Powell replied to Kathy Powell's discussion Both feet affected
"Thank you, Karla. I think it takes people who have been through this to understand just how painful it is. My podiatrist actually had it in both feet before so he gets it. Kind of like a male OB/GYN saying you don't need an epidural, how would…"

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mr.frankkwabena1@outlook.com ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Mr Frank.
