    I use a standard padded shower seat. I do wonder about the pressure. But I'm not on there for more than 5-10 minutes and am shifting weight around frequently so it's probably fine. But a Roho or...

    This is what I do presently. I turn my Ride cushion upside down. That gives me a 4" lift off the floor. That's makes it easier to pull myself up onto a sofa chair. Good thing about this method is...

    This was my original idea. Just wanted to see what others had to say. Thanks.

    Just checked the price for the Para Ladder.

    $1,147.50

    One could build something like this with PVC piping for $50.

    I am looking for something for when I am alone. The para ladder seems like a feasible option. Because the lifts are in small increments, I don't see this being a problem for my shoulders. My concern...

    I skimmed through all the references. There was no mention of limiting cortisone injections to 3 for life. Did I miss it? Can you point it out?

    I have severe bone-on-bone arthritis with 20% rotator cuff tear. I know we discussed this before. You said only 3 injections in a lifetime. Both my orthopedic and paid doctors said 3-4 injections per...

    Alternative to shoulder replacement

    My pain doctor told me that the FDA just approved a new procedure for shoulder pain. They insert an electrode that desensitizes nerves. They already do this for other parts of the body. But it is a...

    I like both kinds of food, beef and cow. Seriously, man was supposed to eat meat. To those who say you can get all your nutrition from plants, just look at the typical vegetarian that looks unhealthy.

    I get it. I really don't want to be washing pissy catheters in public. Sometimes, there are private bathrooms, so you could wash in private. Or you could carry a plastic bag with a little Hibiclens...

    Instead of an envelop, you can use a paper towel folded into an envelop. It's more absorbent so they will dry out better. Plus you can fold them as compactly as necessary. Question is, how do you dry...
