    Help! BP Stopped Working!

    I had some kidney stones lasered a couple months ago. I took pain pills the first day, so of course I was constipated a couple days later when it was time for BP. Then I was still constipated the...

    I don't have pain or get any type of shock, but I do feel like I'm a lot more jumpy than I ever was before--doors opening behind me, etc. I thought it might just be another one of my neuroses. Wasn't...

    I very recently and accidentally discoverd this stuff called TBC Spray (trypsin, balsam peru, and castor oil). I got it to heal up a sore, and turns out it relieves my butt pain. And I just have to...

    Well, the pharmacist said there are no precautions against long-term use and it should be fine. And the only reason it even needs a prescription is because of the Trypsin. I still have 3/4 of the can...

    Found some relief

    The past several months I’ve had neuropathic pain in my butt. Anal, and in the general sitting area. Like a bad case of painful hemorrhoids and/or how a/b peeps get sore from a five hour car ride,...

    Okay, let me rephrase it as a question for SCI Nurse.

    Is there any downside to using Proctofoam once every 3 days? Will a doctor possibly hesitate to make it an ongoing prescription?

    Proctofoam

    Anybody have to keep a constant supply of this, just to apply a little after each BP?

    A few weeks ago, I got external hemorrhoids so bad I couldn’t sit up in my chair for very long. Doc...

    That's pretty funny. But I guess I'm in the minority, I think movie critics get a bad rap. Certainly art is subjective, but there are objective aspects that can be--and deserve to be--discussed about...

    Well, Vonnegut's quote about psychopathic personalities pertained to the system in general. But of course, Vonnegut was a raging socialist, so anything he had to say should be immediately dismissed,...

    I dunno. I don't think it's kinda cool at all. More Kurt Vonnegut:

    "We're terrible animals. I think that the Earth's immune system is trying to get rid of us, as well it should."
