@drummergirlnancy What about the doc who did the surgery? Have you tried getting a lawyer and getting some compensation? I would suggest perhaps going to emergency and they could order some tests. I am sorry about your situation and hope you will find someone who cares. As for docs here, I am not that impressed, a lot of them are scared when you had something screwed up by another doc and they will not support you. They are scared to advocate for patient if they have to say that another physician did something wrong, and yes they make a whole load of mistakes all the time. I think it's their unspoken rule. I think the Ministry of Health is working for doctors here, not patients. Look up on INternet if you can find similar cases and yes leaking silicone can do a lot of bad damage to your body.
Has anyone read the book of Heal Pelvic Pain by Amy Stein? I have seen it recommended and I guess it may be a slightly different approach than AHIP so I think it is good to read, but before buying it I would like to hear some opinions about this book?
Any help will be apprecited.

In the past two days every time I finish a TLE race I get the following message.
"An Error occurred while synchronizing the Event (Error 4008)
When I try to Upload the results I get (Error 7).
Strange thing thou my race time is recorded fine and I'm getting a place in the leader board but none of the achievements is highlighted.

I've been feeling pretty depressed the last couple days, the urethra pain, all my other health problems, a lot of my teeth are failing from damage I did to them when I was younger, (large amalgam fillings lead to cracked teeth ten years later, and $20,000 of bills) and I've been having suicidal thoughts, like I feel like it's time to fold my hand. I guess I kinda feel that when so much is failing healthwise, it may be best to just put oneself out of misery, to phenobarbital oneself. I know that nobody really WANTS to do it, but sometimes I feel it would be best. What do u guys do when u feel this way? Should I go to the emergency room when I'm feeling this way?

What effects do stimulants have on you? When working in Denver, I would have a couple of quad shot doubla mocha mochas from starbucks by 9am in the morning. By 10am, I would have what the other web guys referred to as a "Mocha runtime error." I wouldn't fall asleep, but I didn't race like most people do on caffeine, but rather I would just sit there and stare at the monitor. Same thing with cocaine back in college, I wouldn't race... I would just tweak.
I've always linked it to being bipolar / adhd... after all I took a stimulant for years and years to calm me down so I would act normal.
Am I alone here?

I was accepted by a NP ...who initially seemed to be on board. As the weeks progressed it became evident that she had bitten off more than she can chew. Add to this that when I shared personal negative experiences with whomever, she treated it like a gossip session sharing information about these people including how she treats them. After 2 extremely long "clarifying" meetings and 2 very long phone conversations ... Then another 1.5 meeting where she out of the blue brought up my pain meds and essentially starting treating me like I was in a court of law. All available records are in file for her to access, in addition she said she had spoken to my original GP and had got nothing from them. I asked her point blank ... "Is this about you covering your butt?" She hesitated but I have my own way of getting people to tell the truth (mother's eyes😉) and she confirmed that yes she was worried about her licence. She became agitated and her voice rose as people who feel threatened do. She also kept saying "your diagnosis has nothing to do with it! I said that I would do some research to provide her with the info she wanted. The next day again because she had failed to follow through, another long telephone conversation. About an hour later my stepdaughter returned from the pharmacy with only 1 renewal and 1/2 of another. I was very upset. I took the weekend to think the matter over. I made some phone calls and found out that she hadn't spoken to anyone in my former GP's office nor had she accessed my files. I decided to fire her. I can't have a liar as a GP or any care provider. That was last Monday a week ago. I have talked with her Supervisor who was absolutely no help. I haven't had a call back but I will be calling her tomorrow. I'm not going to stand for being mucked in with those that created this gong show around opiate meds. I'm even more disgusted that her answer was to simply exchange one opiate for another. There is nothing wrong with my dose. I'm 58 and after 40 years of misdiagnosis and negligence, and not until I flipped out on my GP for being negligent and continually misdiagnosising me, did I get my cat scan ... VOILA. It is because if an unattended break in my lumbar spine, left to become worse, that I was now in so much pain that nothing was working. After several different pain meds the only one that worked was Percocet/oxycodone. When I told him I have to take double to get no pain he opted for long acting OxyContin which in Canada is now OxyNeo. I was happy. I was not in pain, and though I couldn't return to my business, I could manage my day to day affairs without crying. I am beyond angry with this NP and even more so with a system that has made honest pain patients into criminals and have intentionally made it difficult for evidentially proven CPPs to continue with a long researched and responsibly managed pain medication. That the Colleges have been allowed to this is reprehensible and irresponsible. I am sickened by a system that I've had to fight against to get proper diagnosis. All of my life in fact. The number of incompetent Drs, nurses / nps is far higher than ever documented. To be so bold faced lied to and to have been so disrespectfully treated is beyond my capacity to let go of. To treat me as if I don't know my options, to assume I've not used or explored them and to assume that I just rely on my pain meds is disgusting of any practitioner. That I know more about my condition than she does, that my back is not an issue but my lungs are and for her to assume she has it under control is arrogant and negligent. To create a disharmonious dishonest environment which is causing me untold stresses is deliberate abuse.
Re: Parenting in pain...
I came across this article that was published in the Huffington Post a few days ago titled, "6 things I want other chronic pain moms to know" and was touched by the encouraging words. It is a well-written and humbling article, and it made me think of @Adri and other parents caring for their children while managing their chronic pain.
What are your experiences parenting with chronic pain?
I’ve been working as a destination wedding photographer for 4 years now and I’ve been around the country for weddings throughout the years. The only complaint I have for this job is the fact that the salary I earn is really small compared to other photography groups. I get paid per wedding so that means that when I travel out of town for about 2-3 days, I only get paid for one day. I don't have to spend for anything though since the client is responsible for the accommodations and everything but the fact is that working for about 12-14 hours per wedding and getting a relatively small amount of income is tiring. I’ve asked multiple times about raising my salary but to no avail. Now, my boss wants me to become a team leader for another group he’s planning to establish and the pay is still so low. Should I push through with the job or not? I need some advice and insight on this.
I'm getting confused, can dementia be classified as a mental health problem? Thanks in advance for your help with my confusion!
My teeth are discolored. I am an addict to coffee. This is the reason for my teeth discoloration. I don't want these yellow teeth. I am planning to do teeth whitening procedure from a clinic in Toronto. My dentist told me to undergo zoom whitening. But my dentist told me not to use any more Tea, Coffee, Soda or Red Wine. But I can not imagine a life without tea and coffee. I am writing here to know whether there is any other supplement for coffee available in the market? Are there any tips that I can try at home to retain my color and continue drinking coffee? I have heard that there is typical kind of coffee available in Paris that will not result in discoloration of teeth. Is that available in Canada? All replies are really appreciated!!
What do you think is the reason many people have financial problems? I'm talking about those who make a good living, but consistently have more month left at the end of the money. Is it a lack of self-discipline, a lack of desire, or something else?

You should calm down. Video chat is not the problem at all. Remeber that you stay in your territory and you can control the situation fully. If you don't like her, you can just apologize and leave.
My mother was diagnosed with cancer a few months back and her health has been deteriorating quickly. I contacted my 4 other siblings who are in different states asking them to pay her a visit. They all gave different excuses such as no money for fare or they’re too busy with work. My mother keeps looking for my eldest brother who’s out of the country to attend some sort of international dating social event, and my youngest who can’t just leave her kids unattended right away. They keep promising that they’ll come over to visit but just the other day, my mom passed away. I told my siblings the bad news and now they’re making the effort to come over as soon as possible for her burial. I’m beyond disappointed with them. My mother sacrificed so much for them and they couldn’t even drop what they were doing just to be with her one last time. I really don’t know how to cope up with my mom’s death and all the more, I don’t know how to react when my siblings arrive. I’m so angry with them.
I see posts from time to time talking about the body going into starvation mode, and implying that by eating less, you will put on more weight/lose less. I can't get my head around this.
If we take for example an apple, which contains ( for the sake of argument, I have no idea how many and don't really care ) 1000 calories, and I eat it. I've consumed 1000 calories. Is the concept here that if I eat one of these every day, that my body will only consume, say, 300 of those calories, and ignore the rest? And that, if I ate one apple every other day, my body says, ZOMGSTARVING, and consumes 1000 calories every other day, so that over the course of a week, I've now intaken 3.5K calories rather than 2.1K based on eating an apple every day?
The implication seems to be that by intaking less calories you stop the body doing, well, whatever it does, and therefore don't lose weight. I could follow this if the idea is that you starve/binge - and take in many more calories on the eating days, but surely if you consistently, every day, consume less calories than you burn by wandering about and slaving over a hot keyboard, you will lose weight, irrespective of whether you eat 0,1 or 20 meals per day.
I typically only eat one meal a day, I don't generally snack, but if my stomach starts growling at me I go eat something. I'm not losing a lot of weight, mainly because of the exercise I'm doing, but my waistline is sure as hell decreasing. I've dropped four notches on my belt since Christmas.
So can anyone explain this in a way that isn't outrageously counterintuitive?
