Hi Mac.....long time no talk. You were the only interested party so thought I'd send you an update on my knee medical follies.
As reported, the parts for my knee replacements did not hold. Turns out I had osteoporosis which is becoming more and more common in men. Got this resolved using Boniva since the start of 2013. Went in to have my right knee replaced again on Tuesday. They couldn't do it as they found a severe bone infection in my right leg. Currently growing the samples in an incubator to determine the cause. Just got home from being in the hospital. Will have to stay on antibiotics for the next 8 weeks and hopefully this will resolve. Then get re-checked. They said it could be bone cancer which would be lights out for me.
Anyway.....if all goes well, will try right knee replacement again in about 8 weeks. Then the left one. They put a temporary plastic knee in for now so still can't walk. Back in the wheelchair at least for now.
Vector announced on the con call yesterday an e-cig called ZOOM. Designed in Germany, manufactured in China, and will be released in Q1 2014. I tried blue e-cig and I had a constant headache. With it always on I used it more as compared to regular smokes. When your done your done but I was always smoking.
Also.....like cell phone and laptop batteries, they can explode. I read 2 articles where one exploded and started a house on fire. The other exploded in a ladies face and she had to have many plastic surgeries. There may me more but that's all I've read. It will be a tough nut to get through the FDA when the time comes.
