That would quickly rack up more pages than the cricket
I wonder if we have any Doctor members that can be of use ?

You moan all you wish......

Me, not infirm and only as old as the woman I feel, who is young enough to be my daughter, just :grin:



To keep healthy I recommend a weekly massage from a curvy Swedish nurse, just to keep the blood moving you understand :thumbs:

Conversation at local health centre:

"Have you seen Geoff lately?"

"What, Geoff with the gammy leg and angina?"

"Yes, that's him, how is he?"

At some point, it seems that ailments become a form of ID :laughs:

I have heard that is has a rejuvenative effect very similar to that experienced following the capture of a big pike, which may explain why so many are always trying to catch one.
Not that I would know anything about either.

Last week at breakfast, my wife dropped one of her tablets. I went down to pick it up, couldn't get back up because of my bad knee. While I was struggling on the floor, she asked if I'd taken my medicine. I couldn't remember.

We're both 47. It was a terrifying insight into our future :laughs:

Nothing to worry about, fast forward twenty years and you will be much fitter and healthier than you are now.

At 17 I spent 6months with an iron on my leg, broke a knuckle, dislocated a knee, broke three toes, collied both ears and lost five teeth along the way. The nurses at the local A&E used to joke that my file was the largest in the Hospital (even got to date two of them :grin: ).
Since I turned 50 Ive seen less of my Doctors than I did in a year back then.

Only problems now are my skin cancers caused by to much fishing in the sun :cool:

Dermatology at the Uni. hospital the other week.
The Dr was delightful and well worth the visit in itself.
The two cancer that were down for surgery had gone, destroyed by a cream she had prescribed on my previous visit. In the trade they call it radiology in a tube, its commercial name is Efudix. You simply apply it daily and it kills off most skin cancers in 3-4weeks.
Somewhat alarming is when you apply it to a small cancer a few days later the full extent of its growth is revealed by red lines and patches eminating from the one small area originally identified.

Skin cancers and boggered up eyes are what results from spending to much time in the sun staring at the water. To late for me but not for the younger entry who may read this. :cool:

🎣 :thumbs:
When bait fishing for bass I always hold the rod using a small rolling lead and fishing similar to touch ledgering. You feel a little knock or slow pull, followed by a short tug, I think that is when the fish is testing the bait to see if its dangerous, if no resistance is felt the fish returns and takes the bait very confidently. To eliminate resistance to the sharp tug requires soft hands and a rod light enough to hold gently, the P2 is ideal, almost the equal to the old Bass Lite.

Enlarged Prostates seem to be the most common go to ailment for my mates and myself!

About 50% of men between the ages of 51 and 60 have BPH, and that number jumps to 70% among men aged 60 to 69 and around 80% of men over 70 years of age.
