Hello All........Just a THOUGHT

Posted , 11 users are following.

Well guys you all know me. I wish you all the health you can have. I have been on here for 4 years every since I had my Urolift and even before that.

I have had my ups and down over the years but this last years has been very stressful to say the least. I'm not going to say much about it but believe me that it has been to the point that I would just like it all to end one way or another.

I have 6 doctor's that I have to go to for different problems. GP, Heart Doctor, Cardiac Electrophysiology, Urologist, Foot Doctor and Gastroenterology. The last year with all the test and stress I just don't want to go anymore.

I should be making appointments to see them but with everything going on I have not even bothered. I have a block on the lift side, my A-Fib may be back again. my feet and leg problem are due because of my diabetes and then we come to the prostate area. A lot of that has to do with stress.

The Urolift has worked for me but that does not mean that something else will come up in the mean while. Which it has. I have a stricture just before the prostate that has giving me problems, A tight external sphincter. What else is going to happen. What next

When I was younger and working I only sleep 4 or 5 hours a day. My day's and night were good. Now with me not working my times is so messed up. There are day's that I can't sleep. 48 hours has been my tops. There are times when I fall a sleep during the day for a few hours and then I'm up till 6 or 7 am. I get woke up to go to the bathroom but who know if this is a problem

I am sorry that I am venting but I have to talk with someone. I know I have to get it together and take control. I have told many men on here to take one day at a time. I think it is time for me to take my own advice.

I have been doing a lot of reading and stress has to do with a lot of out health issues. If we can control that our life and health would be a whole lot better. We just have to learn to a just.

Take care and god bless you all........Ken

    Hey Ken,

    Sometimes things are over welming and in your case seems like alot. Take one problem at a time and one day at a time. Sometimes things aren't as bad as they seem. Hope things work out for you. I know exactly what you mean. Jim

    Hi Ken, I see all of yours doctors apart from the urologist. At least I had that problem solved but I have two that you haven't got yet. One is being 84 the other is fluoroquinolone toxicity syndrome from the effects drugs prescribed for past prostatitis and that is also the most likely the cause of my chronic insomnia.

    Keep going there is an expression in Scotland that says 'You've never died a winter yet'

      Thanks Derek

      Sorry about your problem. I guess we all have them. Just going to take one thing at a time. Going to make my list and see what happens.

      Have a good day. I know it's all most bed time for you. Good night....Ken

      Unfortunately bed time does not mean sleep time. I get off to sleep and two hours later I'm awake. I get up for a while and then if lucky another two hours and that's it.

      I've been trying CBD for the past two months but that has not helped either.

      Derek, I take 25mg of diphenhydramine almost every night. Without it, I'd probably be like you and Ken, doing forum work in the middle of the night. 😀

      Hey Hank

      You have to watch with antihistamines.

      Any man that has a enlarged prostate should not take any medicines that have antihistamine and decongestants in it because it can cause retention. Ir can happen with one pill. They say if you take it and have not pee in 6 hours go to the hospital.

      The ingredients can constrict the prostatic capsule Please be careful....Ken

      As Ken has said the dangers are warned in the leaflets with the medications. Quite a few men on this Forums have told how they were affected by them.

      Most people can take antihistamines safely. Antihistamines should not be used by people with a rare metabolic disorder called acute porphyria. In addition, they may not be suitable for people with liver or kidney problems. First-generation antihistamines may not be suitable for men with prostate enlargement (benign prostatic hyperplasia). They may also not be suitable for people with raised pressure in the eye (acute glaucoma) or who are at risk of glaucoma.

      Women who are pregnant or breast-feeding are usually advised not to take antihistamines. This is because it is not known if they do any harm and studies cannot be done on women in this situation just in case. However, they are not known to cause harm. If certain conditions such as hay fever or morning sickness make you very unwell in pregnancy, the benefit of treatment may be more than the very small risk of any harm. Your doctor would talk this over with you and prescribe one of the antihistamines believed to be safe in pregnancy if you choose to take one. Similarly, in breast-feeding women, in some cases the benefits may be more than the risk. Antihistamines do come through in small quantities into breast milk, although they are not known to cause any harm.

      A full list of people who should not take antihistamines is included with the information leaflet that comes in the medicine packet. If you are prescribed or buy an antihistamine, read this to be sure you are safe to take it.

      I had three one hour spells and feel wrecked or as we say here knackered this morning. Still its a lovely sunny day but only 41F with a stiff 14mph breeze coming off the English Channel. Going out soon so that should freshen me up a bit.

      Good afternoon

      Well I went to bed about 7 am and fell a sleep for about 3 hours. I woke up because I had to pee. My son is off today so we will go out for pizza later. It's 62 here in Orlando. Have a good day. Water is about 45 minutes away. I live in the center of the state it all depends on which side you want to go it.

      We went to Orlando many years ago on our way to the Mardi Gras. We stayed at a Comfort Inn out on Orange Blossom Highway as they provided transport to local attractions.

      The next time was briefer as we got off the Greyhound from Tampa and took a cab to the train station to go on to West Palm Beach.

      That is good. Things have change over the years. I uses to love to go fishing maybe I will do that again just to get out. Coco beach is about 45 minutes. We used to fish in banana river. It were the ocean and river meet.

      Orange blossom is where the mall is at. Nice area. I don't go to the parks anymore. Cost to much to go. I'm not paying $125 a person to get into the parks and you still have to pay $29 for parking.

      I don't know how people can afford to go. It's not worth it to me....Ken

      I can never understand why people keep on going back to the parks. Surely once is enough. Here we only hear of Disney World, Epcot seems to never be mentioned now.

      When we were in Naples FLA they were fishing from the pier and simply pulling fish out of the water. Unfortunately the pelicans were swallowing them off the fishing lines and getting hooks stuck in their mouths.

      Derek.

      Yes I have not been to the parks in at least 15 years. It is the same thing and all the parks have the same menu. $12 for a hamburger and fry's. You can have it.

      I look up about fishing. Years ago when My kids were small and we would go. You did not need a fishing license if you fished on land only if you went in a boat. Now you have to have one. You don't need one if your 65 or under $16

      I will check how much it is and see if it's worth it. When I was younger I use to pick worms. I should my kids how to do that. I thought it was a lot of fun

      Ken
