Re: Sure Mr. Orszag You Will Have a Plan Next Year View Thread
Posted by Rick R on 8/26/09 at 11:23

John,

If the stimulus has worked with only 10% spent, why haven't we stopped the remaining 90%? I shouldn't question the motives?

Sure Mr. Orszag You Will Have a Plan Next Year View Thread
Posted by john h on 8/26/09 at 11:13

The White House issued a statement yesterday that the President is 'very concerned about these out-year deficits.' But apparently not so concerned as to stop pushing for a new $1 trillion health-care entitlement that is conveniently not included in these latest budget forecasts.

The real fiscal crisis in Washington is that neither Congress nor the White House are offering any escape from these trillion-dollar deficits. Mr. Obama has not called for automatic and immediate spending cuts. He has not proposed eliminating hundreds of wasteful programs. To the contrary, the White House still hasn't ruled out another fiscal stimulus, as if a $1.6 trillion deficit isn't Keynesian stimulus enough. The Administration's celebrated scrub through the budget this summer identified $17 billion in agency savings. That's what Uncle Sam is borrowing every three days.

Obamanomics has turned into an unprecedented experiment in runaway government with no plan to pay for it, save, perhaps, for a big future toll on the middle class such as a value-added tax. White House budget director Peter Orszag promises that next year's budget will have a 'plan to put the nation on a fiscally sustainable path.' Hide the children.

Something Lite & Not about Polotics View Thread

Any of you who follow sports have to have noticed that Hussein Bolt has broken all speed records for a human in the 100 and 200 meter runs. He is without doubt the fastest man ever. He can run at his fastest either 23 or 25 mph. Now lets look at some of our four legged animals. The Cheetah can reach a top speed of 70 mph very quick and sustain that speed only for a short time The Pronghorn Antelop who cannot jump can run 40 mph for a good distance. Would you be surprissed to know that your little house kitty when need be can reach 30 mph. A quarter horse has been clocked at 50 mph crossing the finish line. A male grizzly bear can reach a speed up to 30 mph and cover 109 yards in 6 seconds. Mr. Bolt would be in deep trouble if a Grizzly was on his tail. A Greyhound can reach 45mph in three strides.

Man is best at great distances like marathons. Only three other species can out run him here. I do not recall all three but those Huskies who run 100 or so miles in Alaska would leave man in the dust or snow. The Prong Horn antelop can run at a fast speed for many miles. I know this from personal experience. I flew helicopters out of Cheyenne, Wyoming for 3 years. The wide open spaces of Wyoming are filled with these beautiful beast. They heard up at certain times of the year. They are also a deer that cannot jump. When they come to a fence they will go under it or around it. When I would deliver missile crew members out to the missle sites which were some times 100 miles from our base I would fly back empty. One day I decided to see if I could see just how fast they could run and went down to a low level about 30 feet above them and they were off to the races. My problem was at 30-40 mph my air speed indicator was fluctuating to much. I have seen them many times go under fences. I have also tried to check out the speed of a coyote but they ran in such zig zag patterns there was not way they could be timed. Unless the coyote sneaked upon the pronghorn he sure would never catch one as they can run for ever and ever.

How fast can a Cheetah run? Better be faster than his wife can run.

Well, I have more info. I wrote them again and this time got a different response. I was told I could wear swim shoes in the water as long as they are only worn in the water and not anywhere outside the waterpark area. I have the name of the Manager who wrote the response to me, and I'm going to print out the reply and take it with me... so I'm going to go with that. I also found out that if I need one, there are a couple mobility scooters available on site for rental should the worst happen, lol !! But for now, my plan is to wear water shoes like these with an orthotic inside them.

How Mayo Clinic is giving the BEST care for the least amount of money! View Thread
Posted by marie:) on 7/01/09 at 14:10

This is an excellent article outlining the need for keeping costs down but mostly for ridding the medical industry of unnecessary tests and procedures. The thought is to establish data driven procedures based on what works for they patient and not because a hospital and suppliers wants to pay for a new gizmo. This is part of the health care reform we need and will probably get. I was skeptical at first but the data seems to be there.

How to Cut Health-Care Costs: Less Care, More Data
http://www.time.com/time/politics/article/0,8599,1905340,00.html
The U.S. spends more on health care than any other country does, and studies have suggested that as much as 30% of it — perhaps $700 billion a year — may be wasted on unneeded care, mostly routine CT scans and MRIs, office visits, hospital stays, minor procedures and brand-name prescriptions that are requested by patients and ordered by doctors every day. Orszag is particularly obsessed with research by the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice, documenting huge regional variations in costs but virtually no variations in outcomes.

But one man's unnecessary costs are another man's profits; lobbyists for drug- and devicemakers, hospitals, doctors and insurers are already fighting to make sure their slices of the more than $2 trillion health-care pie aren't nibbled by reform. Senate Republicans just introduced 'antirationing' legislation to bar the government from using comparative-effectiveness research — 'a common tool used by socialized health-care systems' — for cost control. They paused in their usual attacks on Obama's profligacy just long enough to attack his stinginess, warning that he will use evidence as an excuse to micromanage the art of medicine, stifle innovation and deny Americans their right to choose whatever treatments they want — or at least their right to taxpayer reimbursements.

The Mayo Clinic attracts Kings and Presidents, injured athletes and ailing billionaires. When Mr. Burns visited Mayo on The Simpsons, Fidel Castro and the Pope were chatting in the waiting room. But Rochester's costs are well below the national average because Mayo also provides tremendous value for ordinary care; its flagship hospital spent just more than half as much per patient in the last two years of life as did the UCLA Medical Center.

The Most Powerful Man of 2009 View Thread
Posted by john h on 6/01/09 at 12:16

I propose the man of the year on the cover of Time Magazine be Timmothy Geithner. Probably most people have never heard of this 47 year old. His shadow has covered Secretary of State Clinton. Normally the Secretary of State is the most important cabinet member. He has hands in almost every thing that is going on and his advice to the President carries more weight than anyone else. He is listed as an Independent on his profile. He spent his formative year growing up in foreign nations such as Zimbabwe, India, and Zambia. He is a lifetime Civil Servant. No President could possible have the knowledge to make decisions on these complicated issues and probably no be able to discuss them in detail so a man like Geithner is needed. Where his decisions are the right ones only time will tell and a lot is riding on them.


'Timothy F. Geithner

Born August 18, 1961 (age 47)
Brooklyn, New York, USA
Nationality American
Political party Independent
Spouse Carole M. Sonnenfeld
Children Elise and Benjamin Geithner
Alma mater Johns Hopkins University (M.A.)
Dartmouth College (B.A.)
Occupation Civil Servant
Timothy Franz Geithner (pronounced /ˈɡaɪtnər/; born August 18, 1961), . He was previously the president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

Geithner's position includes a large role in directing the nation's economic response to the financial crisis which began after December 2007. Specific tasks include directing how $350 billion of Wall Street bailout money is allocated. He is currently dealing with multiple high visibility issues, including the survival of the automobile industry, the restructuring of banks, financial institutions and insurance companies, recovery of the mortgage market, demands for protectionism, Obama's new tax proposals, and relations with foreign governments that are dealing with similar crises.'

'Early life and education
Geithner was born in Brooklyn, New York.[2] He spent most of his childhood living outside the United States, including present-day Zimbabwe, Zambia, India, and Thailand where he completed high school at International School Bangkok.[3] He attended Camp Becket-in-the-Berkshires-for-boys, a summer camp located in western Massachusetts. He then attended Dartmouth College, graduating with a B.A. in government and Asian studies in 1983.[4] He earned an M.A. in international economics and East Asian studies from Johns Hopkins University's School of Advanced International Studies in 1985.[4][5] He has studied Chinese[4] and Japanese.[6]'

'Geithner's paternal grandfather, Paul Herman Geithner (1902–1972), emigrated with his parents from Zeulenroda, Germany to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1908.[7] His father, Peter F. Geithner, is the director of the Asia program at the Ford Foundation in New York. During the early 1980s, Peter Geithner oversaw the Ford Foundation's microfinance programs in Indonesia being developed by S. Ann Dunham-Soetoro, President Barack Obama's mother, and they met in person at least once.[8] Timothy Geithner's mother, Deborah Moore Geithner, is a pianist and piano teacher in Larchmont, New York where his parents currently reside. Geithner's maternal grandfather, Charles F. Moore, was an adviser to President Dwight D. Eisenhower and served as Vice President of Public Relations from 1952-1964 for Ford Motor Company.[9]'

went to NYC View Thread
Posted by want2dance on 3/26/09 at 07:47

Hi dear Doctors;

Well i went yesterday to the NY college of podiatry...wow what a place you have never seen so much action in one place.. students, patients, doctors so much action..anyway, I didn't get to see Dr. jules even though my appointment was with him. I had a student do the intake, another student do xrays, then after the xrays a Dr. came in he was very knowledgeable. They had just taken a surgical test and 80% of the questions were on feet like mine. According to the doctor my feet are 'messed up' I was actually relieved that someone recognized this! I have extremely cavus feet, with Pos tib dysfunction, and a zig zag deformity (?) and this is all made worse by the neurological issues from my cervical spine. He said I don't push off from my toes but twisst when I walk (I have a callus on the inside of big toe) and walk like a duck.( Which I do!!that sold me right there as to his knowledge) they made these little inserts and I am going back next week for orthotics/ brace. They wouldn't tell me yet what shoes to wear. I told them Newbalance KIll me. They put way too much pressure on the outside of my feet. Can you help me with some ideas on shoes? Can I wear birkenstock? I am wearing crocs which they said were bad but I need something during the next few weeks waiting for orthotics. Thank you for your help, I was impressed by their knowledge something that the podiatrists here locally have not displayed, unfortunately.

This is not Obama's Stimulus Bill View Thread
Posted by john h on 2/06/09 at 11:31

President Obama had very little to do with the Stimulus plan. He has acknowledged as much. Powerful Committee Chairmen in the House and largely their staff's wrote the plan. The Director was Nancy Polosi. The question is out there can President Obama regain control of the plan? Staffers, more than anyone, produced this plan. I am not sure why the President did not present a plan to the House to his own liking rather than just tell the the House to write one. Once the House got full control of this bill that is when each Representative on the powerful committees started to add in their own special projects. Many of these add ons had nothing to do with stimulating the economy so here we are in our usual partisan debates. In less than two years it will be election time again and the chances are slim that our economy will be in very good shape. 'The Economy Stupid' will once again drive the election. If the Republicans do not join in on what ever bill passes out of the Senate and the economy is still down the tubes. Then come election time in 2010 the Democrats will face some hard challenges. It would be better for the nation and better for the Democrats to pass a bipartisan bill so that all can take responsibility for what ever results from the stimulus plan. This is why President Obama strongly seeks a bipartisan bill. The two most partisan people on the hill are Harry Reid and Nancy Polosi. They were in Washington many years before President Obama got there and will still be there when he leaves. They are not likely to pass any of their power to anyone including the President. They are 'in your face' type of leaders and the two most powerful people in Congress. Few things get out of Congress without their approval and behind them are there staffs who few of us know or likely have ever heard of. These are the people that actually write the bills. President Obama is having problems with his own party leaders and at the moment can hardly be held responsible for the stimulus plan or lack of one. Politics rule the day as usual. Like many before him President Obama comes into office with high hopes and dreams but is finding out that is hard to 'Change' Washington even with the mandate he brought with him.

President Obama more than anyone since Kennedy arrived in Washington as a 'Messiah'. Kennedy arrived with 'Camelot'. Kennedy had the big advantage of a lifetime in politics, a personal fortune, a family name that carried a lot of weight, and the same high expectations as President Obama. President Obama has a lot to learn and his first lesson is that Congress marches to its own tune. He should use the bully pulpit or else Nancy Polosi and Harry Reid will ride rough shod over him and he will be a shadow President. He has only been in office a couple of weeks and it already seems like a couple of years to me. He is the President and I would urge him to take control and let the Congress know he is the President. He has the peoples ear and is still very much admired by the public. Use your power while you can Mr. President as the public is very fickle and can turn on you in a moment. There are many things still out there that are going to present big problems such as North Korea, Iran and it nuclear threat who have now demonstrated they have a nuclear delivery vehicle, Hamas, Russia, a world economy that is going down the tubes. He and we have only seen the tip of the iceberg. A lot is riding on President Obama and the Congress. Lets all pray that they are up to the challenges ahead and can somehow stop making everything about politics.

McCain moves ahead of Obama View Thread
Posted by john h on 8/20/08 at 09:17

I found this early morning news rather shocking. Maybe the worm is turning as I thought Obama had this election rather locked. Of course, we will see more swings as time goes by but McCain is most definitely in the race. I think Obama's newness is wearing off. He still looks and talks Presidential but Many are not liking what they are hearing on taxes and the lack of any substantial energy progress coming out of the Democratic controlled House. Polosi is certainly not doing Obama any favors and is startint to be the Newt Gingrich of the Democratic party:


McCain takes lead over Obama: poll

By John Whitesides, Political Correspondent 1 hour, 43 minutes ago

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - In a sharp turnaround, Republican John McCain has opened a 5-point lead on Democrat Barack Obama in the U.S. presidential race and is seen as a stronger manager of the economy, according to a Reuters/Zogby poll released on Wednesday.
ADVERTISEMENT

McCain leads Obama among likely U.S. voters by 46 percent to 41 percent, wiping out Obama's solid 7-point advantage in July and taking his first lead in the monthly Reuters/Zogby poll.

The reversal follows a month of attacks by McCain, who has questioned Obama's experience, criticized his opposition to most new offshore oil drilling and mocked his overseas trip.

The poll was taken Thursday through Saturday as Obama wrapped up a weeklong vacation in Hawaii that ceded the political spotlight to McCain, who seized on Russia's invasion of Georgia to emphasize his foreign policy views.

'There is no doubt the campaign to discredit Obama is paying off for McCain right now,' pollster John Zogby said. 'This is a significant ebb for Obama.'

McCain now has a 9-point edge, 49 percent to 40 percent, over Obama on the critical question of who would be the best manager of the economy -- an issue nearly half of voters said was their top concern in the November 4 presidential election.

That margin reversed Obama's 4-point edge last month on the economy over McCain, an Arizona senator and former Vietnam prisoner of war who has admitted a lack of economic expertise and shows far greater interest in foreign and military policy.

McCain has been on the offensive against Obama during the last month over energy concerns, with polls showing strong majorities supporting his call for an expansion of offshore oil drilling as gasoline prices hover near $4 a gallon.

Obama had opposed new offshore drilling, but said recently he would support a limited expansion as part of a comprehensive energy program.

That was one of several recent policy shifts for Obama, as he positions himself for the general election battle. But Zogby said the changes could be taking a toll on Obama's support, particularly among Democrats and self-described liberals.

'That hairline difference between nuance and what appears to be flip-flopping is hurting him with liberal voters,' Zogby said.

Obama's support among Democrats fell 9 percentage points this month to 74 percent, while McCain has the backing of 81 percent of Republicans. Support for Obama, an Illinois senator, fell 12 percentage points among liberals, with 10 percent of liberals still undecided compared to 9 percent of conservatives.

OBAMA NEEDS TO WORK ON BASE

'Conservatives were supposed to be the bigger problem for McCain,' Zogby said. 'Obama still has work to do on his base. At this point McCain seems to be doing a better job with his.'

The dip in support for Obama, who would be the first black U.S. president, cut across demographic and ideological lines. He slipped among Catholics, born-again Christians, women, independents and younger voters. He retained the support of more than 90 percent of black voters.

'There were no wild swings, there isn't one group that is radically different than last month or even two months ago. It was just a steady decline for Obama across the board,' Zogby said.

Obama's support among voters between the ages of 18 and 29, which had been one of his strengths, slipped 12 percentage points to 52 percent. McCain, who will turn 72 next week, was winning 40 percent of younger voters.

'Those are not the numbers Obama needs to win,' Zogby said about Americans under 30. The 47-year-old is counting on a strong turnout among young voters, a key bloc of support during his primary battle with New York Sen. Hillary Clinton.

It made little difference when independent candidate Ralph Nader and Libertarian Party candidate Bob Barr, who are both trying to add their names to state ballots.

McCain still held a 5-point edge over Obama, 44 percent to 39 percent, when all four names were included. Barr earned 3 percent and Nader 2 percent.

Most national polls have given Obama a narrow lead over McCain throughout the summer. In the Reuters/Zogby poll, Obama had a 5-point lead in June, shortly after he clinched the Democratic nomination, and an 8-point lead on McCain in May.

The telephone poll of 1,089 likely voters had a margin of error of 3 percentage points.

The poll was taken as both candidates head into their nominating conventions and the announcements of their choices of vice presidential picks. The Democratic convention begins on Monday in Denver, with the Republican convention opening the next Monday, September 1, in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Posted by D.L on 6/05/08 at 20:11

Greetings Dr. Wedemeyer and other interested physicians,

Excuse me, but I would like to clarify a few things.

The facts, as I know them.

1) Rumors are circulating that NAM may be in deep water. Accu-spina, Lordex, ABS, Z-Grav and Disc Force all fall under the same NAM umbrella.

2) As far as Mr. Dixon is concerned, I have been informed that he has moved from his home soon after an unexpected visit from 'dark suits'. No 'for sale' sign and before school completed its session. His entire family has completely VANISHED!!

As I stated before, Mr. Dixon seemed to be a genuine person and a proud family man. So I wish he's alright.

3) The most surprising item at hand is not what is currently taking place with Mr. Dixon or NAM, but simply what is to be announced on Friday, June 13th.

Dr. Dyer himself has decided to place Vax D up for sale, and Axiom Worldwide has accepted his proposal. That is correct, Vax D and Axiom will now be one in the same.

Axiom’s entire staff will be notified of the transaction on that same date.

Like it or not, this technology is NOT going anywhere.

I wish you all the best,

D.L

PS I would suggest setting up a Google alert for Axiom & DRX9000, so you can read for yourself.

So much fun - let's do TTS surgery again on the same foot! View Thread
Posted by Dottie on 1/27/08 at 20:15

I'm sure the way my surgery was done and the aftercare was as I was instructed to do worked for many surgeons patients. Just not me. I am now worse than ever. Not only is the TTS back with a vengence, I now have the painful results of the Plantar Faciitis surgery. My right foot can't take much more of the pressure of being the only useable foot.

My current surgeon is going back in for a revision. He's gonna see if he can work out my scar tissue and then he will do the Achielles Tendon release which should help with another condition. I don't have 'foot drop' per se...but it's very close. I have trouble finding much on the AT release on folks without cerebal palsy or on children. I have had a strange gait since childhold and my lower legs are not straight from the knee, they splay out just a bit. Maybe it's all related.

I'm ready and I'm not scared. If I could get the medical disability worked out sooner than several weeks, I'd get this done much sooner. I've been thought it. It sucked. The next one will be a full on cast and NO WEIGHT BEARING for four weeks. It's gonna be worse but I'm ready...let's just do IT. Sooner we work out, the sooner I can recover.

I wonder if I need a wheelchair or scooter this time for getting around the house. I need to checkw ith Aetna. I'm looking at March 4th but I need to work it out with the doctor and my insurance company.

I may be naive but I have a good feeling inside about my new surgeon. When I lost him during his practice move, I felt kinda lost. Now that he's back in my life, I have a hopeful feeling that he will do what he can to help ... if not whole, just able to live my live life like real peopla. He listened to me...he once gave me his personal cell phone if I had more questions, and send me a kind email apologizng for not being abailable when I had my surgery. H promised to do what ever he could to help relieve my pain.

Sorry if I had typos, I'm having trouble with one contact lens and seeing this screen is nearly impossible!

Here's to joining the land of the non-limping commmunity!

Re: White lumps on the out side of my heals View Thread
Posted by Dr. DSW on 11/16/07 at 07:43

The small lumps you describle sound like 'piezogenic papules'. These usually become more prominent when you bear weight, or if you were to cup your hand around your heel and squeeze the area firmly, you would probably see them 'pop out'.

These are small herniations of fat, and are absolutely nothing to worry about, IF that is the diagnosis. However, it is not possible for me to make a diagnosis over the internet.

You need to see a doctor for a hands on examination, and IF that doctor confirms that these are simply small fat herniations, also known as 'piezogenic papules' they are completely harmless and nothing to worry about, even though they may look 'ugly' to you.

Re: DRX9000 - FDA - FBI - View Thread
Posted by Oma Z on 5/05/07 at 02:57

Machines that got their FDA 510K clearance for spinal decompression did so because they used a predicate device showing they were equal or substantially similar in safety and efficacy. All spinal decompression machines, SpineMed, DRX, DRS, Accuspina, Lordex,DiscForce, Z-Grav, etc. used VAXD as the predicate device or show it somewhere in their lineage.

So I am of the opinion that any Spinal Decompression device that is cleared for marketing because it is substantially similar and not FDA approved. So no manufacturer of spinal decompression should be claiming their machine is 'approved.' It was cleared for marketing because it was substantially similar to other machines on the market. Approval is different than cleared.
________________________________
Here's from www.fda.gov on the different manufacturers...LOOK AT THEIR PREDICATE DEVICES CLAIMING THEY ARE SIMILAR/EQUIVALENT. Actually it's about 2 pages of all the FDA 510K for them but you probably don't want to read all that unless you want me to post it. I find it interesting though.

3D Activetrac The Saunders Class IW/ITH K001712 Group-
DRX5000 AXIOM USA Inc Class Il/ITH K023160

The rationale of declaring the SpineMED S200B/C is substantial equivalent to the above 2 predicate devices are based on the following:
_______________________

Spine Med's first system showing the predicate was the DRS made by PDS, the copycat VAXD machine beginning in 1998.

What is the key to the spinal decompression? The logarithmic curve technology. Who invented it? Alan Dyer, MD, PhD, former deputy minister of health of Ontario Canada. Who patented it? Alan Dyer, MD, PhD, in 2000. Who owns the technology. Alan Dyer, MD, PhD of VAXD. How long is the life of a patent in the U.S.? 17 years. How can this technology be put in other manufacturer's equipment? I haven't figured that out yet.

Hi Kathy and Ester:
I saw your postings on GERD!! I was diagnosed about 6 months ago with this. Mine felt more like I had swallowed a watermelon..not really a burning feeling but VERY uncomfortable. I had the endoscopy because believe it or not I eat nothing acidic or spicy due to other issues so why would I have Gerd. Maybe due to fibro?? Let's blame everything on that OK???

Kathy guess what...I am typing this on my lovely E machine!!!! We have had good luck with ours but I had better not brag too much. My neck kills me after a short time on the computer. My husband LOVES his lap top more than me i think!!! HE certainly looks comfortable!

Back to the GERD topic. I take a drug called Zegerid. It is new. I take it once in the morning but I still get breakthru pain at night sometimes. Do you ever sneak in a little bit or wine??

Also, wanted to let you all know I read that when you are on these drugs for acid reflux you do not absorb calcium as well. I actually called that toll free number on pill bottle and they were soooo nice. They told me to wait and take the calcium 3 hours after taking the drug. Life gets so darn complicated doesn't it.

Kathy, I am sorry you are having so many issues. I am sure the joy of having a grandchild help you forget and discomfort for a bit. Be well you all. Fellow Female Sufferer!!!!

I must say, this industry is so confusing. I looked further into the decompression industry, it was clear that North American Medical manufactures many tables and markets to everyone. There was one table called the Z-Grav for about $40-50k, then the Disc Force for $95k, the Da Vinci for $95K, and then the Accu-Spina along with a number of other ones. What I was not able to find is an FDA Clearances for the any of NAM's systems with the exception of the Accu-Spina. It just concerns me that one manufacturer is allowed to sell so many different tables at all different price points without FDA Clearances. If anyone knows if they are, please post the links to their clearances. I'm liking the DRX by Axiom Worldwide and the VAX-D systems. They both are FDA Cleared and I found research on both. This website was very interesting:

http://www.clinicaltrials.gov/ct/show/NCT00414596?order=1

it looks like the Mayo Clinic is taking a look at the DRX. I contacted there company for info because they didnt have many studies on the net; they said they will send them to me. I will keep everyone updated as to what I get.

By the way, I heard that Barry Larkin's career was "saved by the DRX9000." I highly doubt that any of those players were treated on the Disc Force/Ease. Since Larkin was treated on the DRX more than likely the other players would have been also if they were treated. Im sure the FL doc is a great guy and more than likely they were there to support him more than the new table. I hope these players dont get in over their head support a medical device that is not FDA Cleared.

Hi Ralph,

How Much longer until you get your computer?? I bet it will be really nice when you get it. I know nothing about computers but I have heard of Dell before and it seem that everyone likes them. My laptop is a HP Pavilion if that tells you anything. Means nothing to me. LOL I just know that I can watch DVD movies on it and when my husband goes to the kids activities and I can't he takes pictures and it plugs right into my LT and puts them right on my screen. I don't really need anything thing else. I'm sure it does more but it does what I need for now.

How have you been feeling?? PT still going okay?? Are you back at the center or still doing PT at home??

I have been having swelling problems. Which makes things hurt worse because things get so tight that you really don't how it's possible it could swell anymore. I have faxed information over to my attorney because I would really like to go see this doctor. His website is www.weil4foot.com this is not to far from me. The doctor there that I would like to see is Dr. Weil Sr. I have waited this long so I guess I could wait longer. I know I really need to see someone now but it really is out of my hands. If you have time can you check out the website and doctor and see what you think?

I have been going to counseling twice a week for the past month. When I saw my counselor yesterday they okayed for my PM to change me to Cymbalta. So I see my PM on the 18th and they are going to change me then. I hope this works better. I now have to start being weighted once a week because I'm loosing to much weight to fast. So, my counselor wants me weighted once a week. I don't eat. She said that is from depression. She said some people over eat when they are depressed but I'm the oppsite. I told her if the would just fix my ankle I would not have this problem at all!! The pain would not make me depressed!! I try and eat but it really just makes me sick. I have had a cheese stick and a glasses of diet pepsi today. My stomach use to growl but it dose'nt do that anymore. I really try but I hate to feel nauseated. That is the worse feeling and that is how I feel when I eat. So, I just would rather not eat right now. My husband and my mom has not been to happy with me right now. My mom stopped over and brought me some of those Dole Juices to at least try and drink. I drink a 8oz glass of water when I take my meds. Trust me if I could eat I would!! So, now just some else I have my family bugging me about along with my counselor. I am drinking some coffee right now. so that is a bit more. I just think they are all making a deal out of nothing!!

I Scott called my Attorney yesterday and we have not heard back from then so I hope we will hear from them on Friday. I don't call because it's to stressfull for me so he always calls.

I also have been looking for some information about my drilled whole in my fibula bone. This fibula hurts so bad!! It feels like it is broke. on a scale of 1-10 I would say it's about an 8!! I know that they have a tendon running through that drilled whole to make my ankle stable but and they did a bone graft to fill the bone in and it really never filled I guess. I even used 2 different bone stimulators!! (EBI and DONJOYLO 1000) For months.

This bone is so painful that you can touch it or push on the bone or bumb it and it causes a very large amount of pain. Then it can take up to days weeks to get this bone to calm down.

I don't understand why they can't take this tendon out of this drilled hole in thr fibula and put is somewhere else and make my ankle stable and then fill in the bone with my bone so it would not hurt anymore. There has to be some way to get me outof this much pain!! You can not tell me I will feel like I have a broken bone for the rest of my life.I know I'm not a doctor but I just can't find someone to answer this question. Then when they are looking at that they can look at the nerve that is causeing me a lot of problems. Then maybe I can just concentrate on the CRPS. I have talk to doctor about having surgery with CRPS and they said you can take that chances but that does not mean it will not work and it does not mean it won't work or make the CPRS worse. I have made my mind up that I will take the chance once it is given to me!! After you have been through this much I will take the chance because I'm ready for amputation!! But I'm trying to turn over all stones before I go back to that doctor and talk to him again.

I have all my surgery report of what my OS has done. If you know of any one Ralph that would like to read to be able to answer my questions that would be great!! I have tried!! I'm so frustrated. I'm sure thtt you can feel my frustration!! I cry over this all the time. Tomorrow the 7th is the worse day in my life and I will not get out of bed for nothing!! It is my 2 year injury date that I really would just like to forget but that hard to do when it has changed your life so much.

We view dogs and cats as pets and we have laws to protect them. I've been working on eliminating the sale of horses for human consumption in the US for a long time. Part of the problem is they are classified as livestock and not pets. An overwhelming amount of American horses are sold and then butchered in Japan, China and other countries. We have 2 or 3 processing plants in this country. The kill pins are horrid........Although the butchers say it is done humanely I see nothing humane about it and it's happening right here in the USA. I have watched it. The horse is stunned with electricity rendering it unconscience. Then it's hoisted into the air by it's backs leg and its throat slit.

They embody the spirit of freedom for our nation yet we have turned our back on them.

No one except Dr. Z was using ESWT for insertional AT. except in Europe. I placed the orbsone on the winnie sometime in 2000. There is no ESWT device in North America that has FDA approval for AT. It's used off label, but you already knew that I hope.

Last Day for Senate POLLS: Webb surges ahead of Allen View Thread
Posted by marie on 11/06/06 at 15:53

Not that polls are necessarily the total predicter but here is the final run down. All are still very close. Please add any polls you find. I don't have a dog in the Senate fight so I'm living vicarously through other states. I'm sticking with my original prediction. The House will go Democratic and Dems will pick up 4 seats in the Senate. Although 6 would be very ok!

Democrat Jim Webb has surged ahead of Republican George Allen in the last poll of the campaign, conducted for News-7 by SurveyUSA.

The survey shows Webb with 52% of the likely voters, with 44% going to Allen.

Iran currently imports 40% of its gas although it has the second highest oil reserves in the world. Their oil field equipment is old and in need of upgrade. They will not meet their expected goal of oil output this year or next year. 85% of their national income is from oil. The price of gas on the street is $.41 per gallon. Financially they really cannot afford to shut off oil to the west without starving their own people which is a possibility. The U.S. does not buy oil from Iran but even so if Iran were to shut down oil exports we would be effected by the price of oil going up. Due to embargos Iran is having problems getting nations with the technical know how to invest in upgrading their oil fields. The possibility of war also makes foreign investors wary. It is estimated that in less than two years Iran will be in a real crunch because of old equipment in their oil fields.


Keith Ellison, an African American state legislator from Minneapolis and a Muslim won the Democratic primary Tuesday and will likely be the first Muslim elected to the U.S. Congress. His election is all but guaranteed in this district. It is estimated that in the U.S. a third of Muslims are black, a third are from southeast Asia, and one third are of Arab descent. He is a lawyer and supports immediate troop withdrawal from Iraq, uiversal health care, and impeachment of President Bush. He has ties with the Nation of Islam leader Lousi Farrakhan who is accused of anti sem-Semitism. American Muslims are now a "polictical constituency" says Pollster John Zogby a Lebanese-American.

Re: piezogenic papules View Thread
Posted by Dr. David S. Wander on 8/07/06 at 15:47

I'm not sure who determined that the piezogenic papules have caused you any discomfort. In 20 years of practice, it has been extremely rare that I have actually seen these ever cause a problem. These are really just small herniations of fat, and are of little concern. If you and your doctor truly believe that these are causing a problem, the problem should only be prevalent when you stand and that would make the papules prominent. You can also make them prominent by firmly squeezing your heel.

Once again, IF you and your doctor believe that this is the problem, a very simple solution is an M-F heel cup. This is simply a firm plastic heel cup that is very inexpensive and molds to your heel. It acts as a retaining wall and prevents your heel from spreading. This way it prevents your body's fat pad from spreading and the small fat "globules" from herniating. The plastic heel cup acts as a wall to keep everything in place. It will work well for this condition.

Other forms of silicone or soft heel cups will NOT work. The heel cup is called an M-F heel cup and is a couple of bucks and your doctor should be familar with it.

Judy, I reviewed your previous 50 or so posts and could find only 3 where you were discussing feet and not attacking someone. Please try to stick to the posting agreement. I've had 3 doctors complain about you committing libel against them in various online message board forums (not just this one and not just doctors here). Don't forget that if i get subpeonaed i have to turn over the internet tracking information. And NO, Dr Z and i have no formal or informal contact besides what everyone sees here in the message board. No, Dr Z is not your worst nightmare.....he's a doll compared to the 3 I'm talking about. Today Dr Z got my first email in maybe a year. We haven't talked on the phone in maybe 5 years. Your postings here are just giving them ammunition as to your libelous personality and it's all recorded, easily searchable, printable, traceable (if i'm subpeonaed), and admitable. For example, your accusations that Dr Z and heelspurs.com have financial connections...we'll here's the post disclaiming that and giving them more evidence for your unusually libelous personality. Haven't you noticed my anti-ESWT posts lately? Can you imagine the kind of affidavit I'd have to give as an unpaid, unbiased, anti-ESWT, unconnected message board moderator who's sole job is to break up fights? You are giving them ammunition everyday. I have agreed to NOT block your posts. I am not on your side or the doctors' side, i just want a clean message board and no subpeanas. If i was on your side, you would have been blocked a long time ago.

Re: Helpful Hints when choosing a podiatrist View Thread
Posted by Dr. David S. Wander on 6/07/06 at 14:43

First I'd like to state that I did speak directly to a representative today at the American Board of Podiatric Surgery. I was told exactly what I stated in my prior post, and that was their policy of NOT referring patients to any individual doctors. If there is an inquiry, they will send a patient a list of board certified doctors in a specific geographical area, NOT just that small town. Therefore, I highly doubt if Dr. Zuckerman receives referrals "all the time" from the ABPS. This would mean that: #1 people would have to know that the ABPS exists (and most people have no idea it exists), #2 people would have to know how to contact the ABPS, #3 the ABPS would supply a list of doctors in the geographic area of Dr. Zuckerman's office, #4 Of all the board certified doctors in the geographic area, these patients would all have to have chosen Dr. Zuckerman, since the other doctors in his area that I surveyed say that they have NEVER received a referral from the ABPS. Therefore, you figure out the odds of Dr. Z getting referrals from the ABPS "all the time". Plain and simple....it simply doesn't happen. I'm not sure why Dr. Zuckerman exaggerated this point, but I did speak to the people at the ABPS and I can assure you that after speaking with them, that I am now even MORE confident that I am correct.

A short article View Thread
Posted by Dorothy on 5/19/06 at 10:09

This came with an e-mail newsletter related to health matters:


Are Your Feet Telling You Something?

Know anyone -- maybe you -- complaining about a painful Achilles tendon? A foot checkup and a cholesterol test may be in order.

Achilles tendonitis -- a painful, chronically inflamed Achilles tendon -- can happen if you overdo it on the treadmill or the hiking trails. But it also could be a sign that you have an inherited high cholesterol disorder. The condition -- known as heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia -- produces cholesterol deposits that wreak havoc with corneas, eyelids, and certain tendons. It also dramatically increases early heart disease risk.

References:
Familial hypercholesterolaemia commonly presents with Achilles tenosynovitis. Beeharry, D., Coupe, B., Benbow, E. W., Morgan, J., Kwok, S., Charlton-Menys, V., France, M., Durrington, P. N., Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases 2006 Mar;65(3):312-315.

More about this Tip: Researchers estimate that about 1 in 500 people in the U.S. and Europe may have heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia. And although many of those people may have complained at an early age -- as early as their 20s or 30s -- about an achy Achilles tendon, most doctors don't routinely test cholesterol when tendonitis is the diagnosis. But early diagnosis of high cholesterol -- or a familial predisposition to developing it -- can help get people on a disease-prevention program sooner and keep hearts healthier longer.

In addition to Achilles tendonitis, there are other foot issues that should raise a red flag in terms of your health. Pain, swelling, redness, excessively dry skin, and thickened or discolored nails, as well as tingling, numbness, stiffness, or other unusual sensations, should be assessed by a healthcare provider. Remember, foot pain is not a normal part of aging, and getting it diagnosed and treated can save you from more serious complications down the road.

I will celebrate about 10 years of bilateral PF and being on Scotts board almost from day one. We have had some defining moments: The Ossatron 6 get a free trip to Canada and ESWT treatment with the Ossatron which had not yet been approved in the USA. Paid for by an Officer from Healthtronics. Scott was one of those 6 people. Dr. Z gave away a free Orby ESWT treatment once a month for about a year. I made the long journey to N.J. three times for the treatment. One of our long time PF guys was cured after 12 ESWT treatments (in Canada). A group of us on he board met in N.J. at Dr. Z's for various treatments and enjoyed a big party on Dr. Z a local cabaret. We have had posters from all over Europe, Australia,Canada, and even Africa. Many people have actually been cured. Some fight on.

Re: peizogenic papules View Thread

Piezogenic papules are simply small herniations of fat and rarely if ever require treatment. These become prominent when you stand, or if you squeeze your heel in your hand you can also cause these to appear. They will cause no harm and are very rarely painful. If you believe they are causing discomfort, a very inexpensive and simple solution is a product called an M-F heel cup. It is a firm plastic heel cup that sits inside your shoe. When you wear your shoe it "cups" the heel and doesn't allow the "fat" and soft tissue of the heel to spread and will prevent the small herniations/piezogenic papules from becoming prominent. Most podiatrists have these in the office and they cost a couple of dollars.

Thank you. I have been posting a lot since I found this site. I was first diagnosed with TTS and the orthpedic said only open surgery could correct it. I went strait to the internet for help. Found this sight and Dr. Goldstein and critterz guided me to a Podiatrist about 40 minutes from my home that does the cryosurgery Dr. Goldstein does for TTS. Dr. Orhelein said I did not have TTS but PN. Dr. G advised me to follow Dr. O's instructions as he knows him and he is a good doctor for this. I started the TENS unit a week ago today. I walk without much pain. Will soon get inserts for my shoes. Hopefully I can start wearing tennis shoes again. I have been wearing Ariat Fat Baby Cowboy boots. They are made wide and I love wearing them anyway. We have a farm and I wear lots of boots but these are the best for my feet. The Justin boots are too narrow. Anyway, I have not had any surgery on my feet. Hopefully, praying that we can stay away from that. It would be the cryosurgery if any at all. I will try to get on more often. If you go back to some of the postings from about a month ago you will find a lot from me. I was desperate for help. Pray all the time for those that need it and can't find it close to home. No one knows that when your feet are messed up your whole body is in pain. God bless you all. Talk later, B

This is a list of citations begining in 1965 to date that deal with this "rare" adverse event. I present this not as an argumentative rebuttal but as proofs regarding my previous post. One would think if indeed this was a rare occurence we would not read medical journal articles concerning it each and every year for forty years. Nor does this list inlcude all such citations, only those readily available to the average person. Of special interest is the statements made at the 62 Meeting of the Anti-Infective Drugs Advisory Committee (circa 1994)where quinolone induced joint destruction (requiring complete joint replacement) is discussed as well as irreversible tendon and ligament damage. You will find that towards the end of this response. We find the same documentation when it comes to peripherial neuropathy as well which was first reported in association with Nalidixic Acid in the mid sixties.

15. ENGLAND
130 reported tendon inflammation or rupture (England, France and Belgium, 1996)
The group cited 130 reports of tendon inflammation or rupture in people who used the prescription drug in England, France and Belgium. The FDA has received at least 52 reports of patients in the U.S. who have suffered tendon damage
(from public citizens 1996 petition)
Szarfman et al. recommended that the labeling on packaging for fluoroquinolone be up-dated to include a warning about the possibility of tendon rupture. In its recommendations on the use of
this class of antibiotics, the British National Formulary
suggested that "at the first sign of pain or inflammation, patients should discontinue the treatment and rest the affected limb until the tendon symptoms have resolved."
British National Formulary. No. 32, p. 259. London, British Medical Association, Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain, 1996.

16. FRANCE
921 reported tendon disorders France
340 reported tendonitis, 81 tendon ruptures 1996, WHO
Adverse drug reactions with fluoroquinolones The French system of drug surveillance has analyzed the reports of adverse drug reactions (ADRs) to fluoroquinolones since they were launched. The frequency of reactions ranges from 1/15000 to 1/208000 case per days of treatment. Cutaneous disorders and tendon disorders dominate in France, whereas cutaneous effects and neuropsychiatric disorders are predominant in the UK; tendon disorders take up only the 5th position. Among the most unexpected ADRs are the following: 1- Shock 2- Acure renal failure Tendon ruptures represent 81 cases for 921 reports of tendon disorders which are related in decreasing order to pefloxacin 1/23130 case per days of treatment, ofloxin, norfloxacin and ciprofloxacin 1/779600 case per days of treatment. Age and corticosteroids increase the risk of tendon rupture. Therapie 1996; 51; 419-420 Tendon disorders with fluoroquinolones 421 cases have been collected by the Centre de Pharmacovigilance: 340 of tendinitis and 81 of tendon rupture. These cases were attributed to Peflacine, Oflocet, Noroxine, Ciflox. Tendinitis was characterized by a bilateral malleolar oedema associated with a sudden pain. Sometimes this oedema evoked phlebitis. The tendon rupture was generally preceded by a tendinitis but in half of the cases it occurred without warning.

1997

1. Australia. The Adverse Drug Reactions Advisory Committee first reported tendinitis in association with fluoroquinolone antibiotics in 1997. The Committee has continued to monitor this adverse reaction, and has now received 60 reports of tendinitis, tensosynovitis and/or tendon rupture in association with these drugs. Ciprofloxacin was most frequently cited (55 reports), as well as norfloxacin (4) and enoxacin (1).
Forty-five reports described tendinitis alone, one report described tensosynovitis, and 14 reports documented tendon tear or rupture. Fifty-five of the 60 reports specified the Achilles tendon, including 20 which described bilateral Achilles tendon damage. All 14 reports of tendon rupture involved the Achilles tendon. The 58 patients ranged in age from 38 to 91 years (median: 69), with no significant difference between those with tendinitis and those with tendon rupture.
The daily doses of ciprofloxacin ranged from 500 mg to 2250 mg, with 46% of patients taking 1500 mg and 46% of patients taking 1000 mg daily. For those who developed tendon rupture, 57% were taking 1500 mg daily. Time to onset varied from within 24 hours after the drug was commenced to 3 months after starting, but the majority of cases of tendinitis occurred within the first week. Time to rupture was longer with a median time of 2-3 weeks. Known risk factors for these reactions include old age, renal dysfunction and concomitant corticosteroid therapy. In the cases reported to the ADRAC, 29 reports documented concomitant corticosteroid use, and in 21 of the other 31 reports the patients were aged 69 years or older. In the reports of tendon rupture, 12 of the 14 described either concomitant steroid use (9) or old age (9).
Prescribers are reminded to be alert for this reaction and to withdraw the fluoroquinolone immediately when symptoms of tendinitis appear in order to reduce the risk of tendon rupture.

7. The majority of ADR reports received among antibacterials concerned levofloxacin, which is a fluoroquinolone antibiotic. Fourteen of the reports were on tendinitis or rupture of the Achilles tendon. Tendinitis caused by fluoroquinolones was discussed in TABU for the first time in 1996. Since then the ADR register has received a total of 42 reports on tendinopathies caused by
fluoroquinolones, over a third of which were ruptures of the tendon.
The use of fluoroquinolones has in-creased by about 75% since 1996. Levofloxacin is responsible for the major part of this increase. It has been marketed in Finland since mid 1998.

10. U.S. ARMED FORCES
Spontaneous Ruptures of the Achilles Tendon, US Armed Forces, 1998-2001
Methods. The Defense Medical Surveillance System was searched to identify all incident ambulatory visits of active duty servicemembers with a primary diagnosis of non-traumatic rupture of the achilles tendon (ICD-9- CM code 727.67) and other tendon ruptures (ICD-9- CM codes 727.60-727.66, 727.68-727.69) between January 1998 and May 2001.
The most striking finding of this analysis is the sudden and significant increase in rates of achilles tendon ruptures beginning in calendar year 2000. The increase was manifested across all Services and in most demographic subgroups (table 1). Rates
of non-traumatic ruptures of several other tendons also increased during the period; and increases in ruptures of the rotator cuff were comparable to those of the achilles tendon.

AUSTRALIA
THE ACHILLES HEEL OF FLUOROQUINOLONES
One of the more unusual adverse reactions known to be associated with the fluoroquinolone antibiotics is the occurrence of tendinitis. This is a serious effect since it may progress to tendon rupture with many weeks of disability as a result. Over 200 cases have been reported in the literature with the majority from France. Most members of the class including ciprofloxacin, enoxacin, ofloxacin, and norfloxacin have been implicated. The Achilles tendon is most often involved.
In Australia, there have been 25 reports of tendinitis in association with fluoroquinolones. Most (22) have been with ciprofloxacin and the other three with norfloxacin. The majority of the patients involved were elderly, ranging in age from 46 to 91 (median 69) years and the sex distribution was equal. For ciprofloxacin, daily dosages ranged from 750 mg to 2250 mg although most (13) patients were taking 1000 mg daily. For norfloxacin, all three patients were taking the usual dose of 800 mg daily. Time to onset ranged from the same day that the drug was commenced (in two patients) to two months although in 13 of the 24 reports which provided the information, the reaction occurred within the first week. Almost all (23) of the reports specified the Achilles tendon as the site of the tendinitis. Tendinitis was described as bilateral in 11 cases. Only 8 patients had recovered at the time the report was submitted and the other patients were being treated with rest and/or physiotherapy. There have been no reports of tendon rupture in Australia although in one severe case, the patient required a plaster cast up to the mid thigh.
A number of risk factors have been identified with regard to this adverse reaction. These include old age, renal dysfunction, and concomitant corticosteroid therapy. Of the patients reported to ADRAC, 72% were older than 60 years. Nine of these patients were taking corticosteroids as were three of the younger patients.
Prescribers are reminded that tendinitis, especially involving the Achilles tendon, is a rare adverse effect of the fluoroquinolones. It is more likely to occur in association with the risk factors referred to above. The antibiotic should be withdrawn immediately to reduce the risk of tendon rupture.


DUTCH
Fluoroquinolones have been associated with tendon disorders, usually during the first month of treatment,1-5 but the epidemiological evidence is scanty. We did a nested case-control study among users of fluoroquinolones in a large UK general practice database to study the association with Achilles tendon disorders.

Participants, methods, and results

We obtained data from the IMS Health database (UK MediPlus), which contains data from general practice on consultations, morbidity, prescriptions, and other interventions in a source population of 1-2 million inhabitants. The base cohort consisted of all patients aged 18 years or over who had received a fluoroquinolone. We excluded people with a history of Achilles tendon disorders, cancer, AIDS, illicit drug use, or alcohol misuse. We identified potential cases by reviewing patient profiles and clinical data and excluded tendon disorders due to direct trauma. We randomly sampled a group of 10 000 control patients from the study cohort.

We defined four categories of exposure to fluoroquinolones: current use, recent use, past use, and no use. We defined current use as when the tendon disorder occurred in the period between the start of the fluoroquinolone treatment and the calculated end date plus 30 days, recent use as when the calculated end date was between 30 and 90 days before the occurrence of the disorder, and past use as when the calculated end date was more than 90 days before the occurrence of the disorder. We used unconditional logistic regression analysis to calculate adjusted relative risks and 95% confidence intervals for Achilles tendon disorders, using the no use group as the reference. We adjusted for age, sex, number of visits to the general practitioner, use of corticosteroid, calendar year, obesity, and history of musculoskeletal disorders.

The cohort included 46 776 users of fluoroquinolones between 1 July 1992 and 30 June 30 1998, of whom 704 had Achilles tendinitis and 38 had Achilles tendon rupture. Four hundred and fifty three (61%) of the cases were women, and the mean age was 56 years. Cases visited the general practitioner significantly more often than did controls (mean 20 v 17). Cases and controls were similar with respect to indications for use of fluoroquinolone. Age, number of visits to the general practitioner in the previous 18 months, gout, obesity, and use of corticosteroid were determinants of Achilles tendon disorders. The adjusted relative risk of Achilles tendon disorders with current use of fluoroquinolones was 1.9 (95% confidence interval 1.3 to 2.6). The risk for recent and past use was similar to that for no use. The relative risk with current use was 3.2 (2.1 to 4.9) among patients aged 60 and over and 0.9 (0.5 to 1.6) among patients aged under 60 (table). In patients aged 60 or over, concurrent use of corticosteroids and fluoroquinolones increased the risk to 6.2 (3.0 to 12.8).

Relative risk of Achilles tendon disorders associated with use of fluoroquinolones according to age
Current exposure to fluoroquinolones increases the risk of Achilles tendon disorders. This finding is in agreement with a smaller study, in which we found an association between tendinitis and fluoroquinolones.5 Our results indicate that this adverse effect is relatively rare, with an overall excess risk of 3.2 cases per 1000 patient years. The effect seems to be restricted to people aged 60 or over, and within this group concomitant use of corticosteroids increased the risk substantially. The proportion of Achilles tendon disorders among patients with both risk factors that is attributable to their interaction was 87%. Although the mechanism is unknown, the sudden onset of some tendinopathies, occasionally after a single dose of a fluoroquinolone, suggests a direct toxic effect on collagen fibres. Prescribers should be aware of this risk, especially in elderly people taking corticosteroids.

This is far from being an all inclusive list of such medical journal entries and other such main stream documentation. Starting in 1965 and ending in 2005, almost forty years worth of such reports and the treating physician as well as the patient have no prior knowledge concerning such events. This defies logic but sadly enough this is the true state of affairs. In spite of the overwhelming evidence presented at that 62 Meeting of the Anti-Infective Drugs Advisory Committee that the fluoroquinolones cause irreversible joint damage in the pediatric population the FDA has recently added the use of Ciprofloxacin in the pediatric population, treating children as young as one years of age.

Numerous studies have indicated that such use in a pediatric patient runs the risk of crippling the child for life. Yet additional clinical trials continue aided and abetted by the FDA, for other drugs in this class other than Ciprofloxacin. A disaster that is detailed within the 62nd meeting of the Anti-Infective Drugs Advisory Committee where it was so eloquently stated:

"…when we talk about the issue of arthropathy that potentially includes a number of things, ranging from simple effusion, for instance, of a knee joint, which might rapidly resolve after the conclusion of therapy, to a more permanent disability. .." (sic)

"…in September of 1997 there is now a ciprofloxacin suspension which is available, and although it continues to have the same warning statements about arthropathy in juvenile animals and the potential concern in pediatric populations, obviously, the issue of off label use will extend over to pediatric populations in this formulation…."(sic)

"…An important safety question is, what adverse events should be monitored, and Doctor Goldberger alluded to this earlier. This is some of the examples I present. One is permanent lameness, reversible lameness, joint effusion, joint pain, and even latent articular disease or damage that may occur months or years following drug exposure, and there may be others…."(sic)

"…And, data submitted to the Agency, as well as data from the scientific literature, indicate that these lesions don't appear to be reversible…"(sic)

"…Doctor Stahlmann in Berlin is working on an idea that it may be an effect between the endocrines, the magnesium and the matrix and the quinolone. And that data is just coming out now. But as to the exact mechanism, I think you're right. I don't think we have a handle, as far as I know, on the exact mechanism. If there's anybody else that does, I'd sure like to hear it…"(sic)

"… Relating your personal experience, I was wondering about the potential for a delayed effect that in fact one might have a patient who had some histologic changes that would not be manifest clinically for many years. Is that a potential?" (sic)

"… I think it is a potential…"(sic)

"… In trying to assess toxicity with a very sensitive assay, obviously you've got tissue that you can look at in your animal models. There is some human data that were collected by Doctor Urs Schaad using MRI scanning in children and I'm wondering if you can correlate some of your histopathologic findings with MR in the animal model to give us an idea of how sensitive it would be sort of as a follow-up to Doctor Klein's question is the MR something that will be able to predict long-term outcomes, even if there are no clinical symptoms during therapy…."(sic)

"… That I don't know. I'll just be perfectly frank. I don't know. But on the slides I've seen from the animals from the chronic study, the repaired articular cartilage that is there is principally fibrocartilage yet it will provide the same joint margin and it has a calcified base and when we stain it with safrain O screen there's no proteoglycans there so it's going to make it an extremely chondromalaistic area and beyond the one year I can't tell you what the results will be…"(sic)

"…Anyway, it was by a group in Vienna where they looked at the articular cartilage of postmortem specimens of articular cartilage from kids with cystic fibrosis that had been on quinolones for a period of time and they found that there was damage in the chondrocytes…."(sic)

"…There were no deaths reported in U.S. pediatric zero to 18 year old cases where a flouroquinolone was reported as the suspect drug. However, there are eight deaths in the whole cohort of suspect and concomitant flouroquinolone drug reports in the system. Five of these deaths reported ciprofloxacin as a concomitant drug and not the suspect drug. These five were U.S. cases with ages ranging from seven months to six years. The remaining three deaths were all foreign, all 18 year old patients with either ofloxacin or norfloxacin reported as the suspect drug…."(sic)

"…There are 14 reports of arthropathy or arthralgia in the pediatric zero to 18 year old flouroquinolone reports. One report of a 14 year old girl had both ofloxacin and lomefloxacin as the suspect drug so there is an extra count because of the two flouroquinolones on this one report. This particular report indicates that a pediatric orthopedic surgeon diagnosed femoral anteversion as the cause for the girl's arthralgia, therefore you see it listed twice, and not the flouroquinolones. Most of the reports indicated that either an involved knee or elbow with or without other joints was involved…."(sic)

"…One interesting case which is not included on this slide for arthralgias was a 15 year old boy who received ofloxacin IV for an emergency appendectomy and had not grown more than his 70 inches in height over the last year. The 15th percentile for height for a 15 year old boy however is 66.5 inches and the expected growth rate is about two inches per year…"(sic)

"…Three patients had their seizure after the first dose of flouroquinolone, one on ciprofloxacin and the other two on ofloxacin, one of which had received ofloxacin several months earlier…"(sic)

"…The 15 psychiatric reports are a loose grouping of reports which include events ranging from euphoria to psychosis. The ages range from five to 18 years with the median at 15 years. There were two suicide attempts, one on ofloxacin and the other on norfloxacin, three reports of hallucination, one each on ciprofloxacin, ofloxacin and norfloxacin, and one report of aggressive behavior with confusion in a patient who had a psychiatric history and was on norfloxacin. The seven cases of photosensitivity were reported with lomefloxacin with one case on ciprofloxacin and two cases on ofloxacin. …"(sic)

"…I will mention that there were 152 U.S. cases aged zero to 18 years in the U.S. AERS system suspect flouroquinolones in the WHO line listing. The country with the most pediatric reports in the WHO foreign reports is the United Kingdom with 177 reports followed by Germany with 72 and France with 71. The rest of the countries had 20 or fewer reports…."(sic)

"…And with regards to muscular-skeletal events, 21 percent of the patients had an event in ciprofloxacin…"(sic)

"…We have focused our analysis on joint disorders and pefloxacin. 79 cases were reported and consist mainly of arthralgia. I don't know the pronunciation of hydrarthrosis -- 49 persons. It involved the knee in 52 cases, the wrist in 20 cases, the elbow in 20 cases, the shoulder in 6 cases, the ankle in 5 cases, and the hip once. It is associated with a functional discomfort in all cases, and when the duration of this discomfort is known, it can persist more than one month in 61 percent of these cases. But the outcome was favorable in 58 cases without discontinuation in two cases. …"(sic)

"…There have been sequelae in three cases with knee effusions persisting one year later in one case with discomfort following 8 months later in the second case. The third case is articular. It is a 17-year-old patient who experienced arthropathy and the drug was not suspected and the treatment was continued two following months. It leads to destructive arthropathy of the knees and the hip and prothesis was performed three years later. He was treated for a cerebral abscess. The outcome was unknown in 18 cases. In 9 cases, there was no follow-up. In the 9 last cases, we had a follow-up three months later and patients were not -- were still with disabilities and after we have no evolution…." (sic)

"… It is my understanding that one of the children had a joint replacement, is that correct?"

" Pardon me?"

" One of the children with the complications had an artificial joint replacement?"

"Yes."

"…If an irreversible cartilaginous lesion can occur, it is very likely that is going to cause problems down the line and we can't even anticipate what they are like…" (sic)


Again I state that this is for your reference & review and being made in support of my oppossing opinion that such occurences are not rare. I also take exception to the statement made that there is some kind of obligation to report such events. There is not. Such reports are done strictly on a voluntary basis and no law mandates that this be done by the treating physician. The medwatch program is voluntary and less that 3% of such events are ever reported to the FDA. A full 97% of such events never make it to the FDA. When reviewing the medwatch data base for the fluoroquinolones, joint, tendon and cartilage damage are all the top three events being reported, more so than any other adr.

In addition when a physician fails to recognize such an event it is doubtful that it would be reported. The NUMBER ONE complaint of those who have suffered such an event is the fact that the treating physician DENIES that it could possibly be the result of fluoroquinolone therapy. Any number of the tens of thousands of such victims I have discussed this issue with have reported that their physician REFUSED to make such a report, REFUSED to review the citations brought to them by their patients, and instructed their patients to stay off the internet. Even when such documentation was presented to the drug reps via pharmacafe those posting such information were ridiculed and harassed. This is not a situation I find condusive to accurate reporting of such events. It is a situation that results in false and misleading information being available to both the patient and the physician, while the true state of affairs is swept under the carpet.

Scarbourough's tough criticism of Republicans. Thank you Joe.

http://movies.crooksandliars.com/Scarborough-bashes-republicans-Katrina.mov

I have always respected Joe and not because he and I are in agreement with each other but because he's honest.

Scott, I have no problem with your criticism of the welfare system or of the criminals in NOLA who made this job much tougher. There is no denying that was an issue, but to blame them for the lack of response immediately after the first levee broke is wrong and uninformed. That's when the federal government didn't just fail welfare recipiants in NOLA they failed America. They failed each and every citizen.

Senator Bayh's response:

Their response may have allowed the Democrats to seize the issue that Republicans had hammered them with in the past two elections: national security. "Our government failed at one of the most basic functions it has - providing for the physical safety of our citizens," Senator Evan Bayh, an Indiana Democrat who is considering a run for president in 2008, declared in a speech on the Senate floor.

I am stunned that the same man, our president, hastily made it back to Washington D.C. to sign the Schiavo Bill but couldn't manage the same attention for the disadvantaged in NOLA. Hey, oh well. Who cares if the innocent died with the guilty? GOP doesn't care? Poor Trent Lott. While the elderly, families, young, old, sick and poor wasted away in their urin so our Secretary of State could buy new shoes and Bush could visit McCain. No.....I am truely saddened by the lack of humanity by so many now.......even here today on this message board. It takes a stand up man to do the right thing. Thank you Joe Scarborough and all the rest of the conservatives who still have their integrity and their heart. God bless you. and the rest......only God can pass judgement on you and He will.

NOLA should have moved all modes of transportation to higher ground before Katrina hit. Now it would have been a little difficult finding that many bus drivers on a weekend after people had been told to leave the city but I have to wonder if they tried.

Blanco should have made more timely decisions.

Bush should have got off his duff and gone to work. Actually his behavior doesn't stun me a bit. he has been a walking blunder since he took office.Below is the timeline complete with functioning links.

Some Past History View Thread
Posted by John H on 9/06/05 at 10:22

Back in the 70's the Corps of Engineers wanted to plug the only opening in Lake Ponchatrain that opens to the ocean. This was to prevent a storm surge from entering the Lake and causing an overflow of the levees and or failure of the dykes. Environmentalist and sports fisherman fought this tooth and nail and the government could never get it done. Many engineers think this is still the thing to do but still expect the environmentalist and sports fisherman to fight it regardless of what has happened. You can be assured it will be part of the investigation and you can be sure the same people will oppose it. It has been brought up by the Corps of Engineers with every administration and Congress since the early 70's. Environmentalist thought the money could have been better used elsewhere. Environmentalist do a lot of good but they also impede progress in many cases.

Just watching a guy in NOLA being interviewed down in the murky water in front of his house. Said he will not leave. Lots of infighting going on in the area between some of Representatives in NOLA, the Mayor, the Police Chief, and Commander of the LA National Guard. Many are now saying the plan to use the Superdome as a shelter was ill thought out. Finger pointing going on all over the place. However, good Americans and the Military are moving fast and furious and I continue to be amazed that after only a week we have almost cleared the city and people are being relocated to safety with food and healthcare. There will be homes for these people. It want and could not happen in one week or one month no matter what plan you have. But it is up and running. Think about it; large ocean going cruise ships are being used for homes, military bases, a call for thousands of mobile homes to be set up, I have seen people giving their rent homes for free to refugees for as long as they want, people and the military in mass are moving in to clean up. One of the greatest mass cleanups in history is well underway after only one week. We cannot bring back the dead but as Winston Churchill said in 1940 when things looked terrible for Britain "This may be our finest hour".

I think Chuchills entire speech is worth a read as I see events and lessons in it comparable to the tragedy before us. It is long but worth looking back. You do not know where you are going if you do not understand where you have been:


At 5:30 a.m. on May 10, 1940, Germany began a massive attack against Holland, Belgium, Luxembourg, and France. Defending those countries were the British Expeditionary Force (B.E.F.) along with the French, Belgian, and Dutch armies.


The Germans had 136 divisions while the Allies had 149. The Allies had more tanks, however the Germans had more combat planes. Although the opposing armies seemed evenly matched, there was a crucial difference in command structures and battle tactics. The Germans had an aggressive battle plan and utilized modern communications such as radio. German tank generals including Heinz Guderian and Erwin Rommel commanded from the front lines, improvising when necessary, and urging their troops onward. Morale was very high.


The Allies assumed a defensive, World War I style battle plan centered around the Maginot Line, a string of defensive forts along the French-German border, south of the Ardennes forest, stretching from Luxembourg to Switzerland.


Allied generals were usually nowhere near the front and even relied on hand-delivered messages. The high speed mechanized German 'blitzkrieg' continually caught the Allied armies off-guard. In many cases, Allied generals ordered troops to defend areas which had already been overtaken by the Germans.


The Maginot Line was simply bypassed by German Panzer tanks which attacked through the 'impassable' Ardennes forest. The Germans then circled north and surrounded the Allied armies in Belgium. The 'Miracle at Dunkirk' occurred next as 338,000 British and French soldiers were picked up from the coastline by over a thousand vessels, including Royal Navy destroyers and a flotilla of smaller boats of every shape and size.


After just a few weeks of battle, Hitler's armies had experienced stunning victories on all fronts. Holland, Luxembourg and Belgium had capitulated by the end of May. Paris fell on June 14. Three days later, France sued for peace.


In this speech to the House of Commons, Prime Minister Winston Churchill discusses the disastrous turn of events in Europe with the realization that Britain now stands alone against the seemingly unstoppable German military juggernaut.




I spoke the other day of the colossal military disaster which occurred when the French High Command failed to withdraw the northern Armies from Belgium at the moment when they knew that the French front was decisively broken at Sedan and on the Meuse. This delay entailed the loss of fifteen or sixteen French divisions and threw out of action for the critical period the whole of the British Expeditionary Force. Our Army and 120,000 French troops were indeed rescued by the British Navy from Dunkirk but only with the loss of their cannon, vehicles and modern equipment. This loss inevitably took some weeks to repair, and in the first two of those weeks the battle in France has been lost. When we consider the heroic resistance made by the French Army against heavy odds in this battle, the enormous losses inflicted upon the enemy and the evident exhaustion of the enemy, it may well be the thought that these 25 divisions of the best-trained and best-equipped troops might have turned the scale. However, General Weygand had to fight without them. Only three British divisions or their equivalent were able to stand in the line with their French comrades. They have suffered severely, but they have fought well. We sent every man we could to France as fast as we could re-equip and transport their formations.


I am not reciting these facts for the purpose of recrimination. That I judge to be utterly futile and even harmful. We cannot afford it. I recite them in order to explain why it was we did not have, as we could have had, between twelve and fourteen British divisions fighting in the line in this great battle instead of only three. Now I put all this aside. I put it on the shelf, from which the historians, when they have time, will select their documents to tell their stories. We have to think of the future and not of the past. This also applies in a small way to our own affairs at home. There are many who would hold an inquest in the House of Commons on the conduct of the Governments--and of Parliaments, for they are in it, too--during the years which led up to this catastrophe. They seek to indict those who were responsible for the guidance of our affairs. This also would be a foolish and pernicious process. There are too many in it. Let each man search his conscience and search his speeches. I frequently search mine.


Of this I am quite sure, that if we open a quarrel between the past and the present, we shall find that we have lost the future. Therefore, I cannot accept the drawing of any distinctions between members of the present Government. It was formed at a moment of crisis in order to unite all the Parties and all sections of opinion. It has received the almost unanimous support of both Houses of Parliament. Its members are going to stand together, and, subject to the authority of the House of Commons, we are going to govern the country and fight the war. It is absolutely necessary at a time like this that every Minister who tries each day to do his duty shall be respected; and their subordinates must know that their chiefs are not threatened men, men who are here today and gone tomorrow, but that their directions must be punctually and faithfully obeyed. Without this concentrated power we cannot face what lies before us. I should not think it would be very advantageous for the House to prolong this debate this afternoon under conditions of public stress. Many facts are not clear that will be clear in a short time. We are to have a secret session on Thursday, and I should think that would be a better opportunity for the many earnest expressions of opinion which members will desire to make and for the House to discuss vital matters without having everything read the next morning by our dangerous foes.


The disastrous military events which have happened during the past fortnight have not come to me with any sense of surprise. Indeed, I indicated a fortnight ago as clearly as I could to the House that the worst possibilities were open; and I made it perfectly clear then that whatever happened in France would make no difference to the resolve of Britain and the British Empire to fight on, if necessary for years, if necessary alone.


During the last few days we have successfully brought off the great majority of the troops we had on the line of communication in France; and seven-eighths of the troops we have sent to France since the beginning of the war--that is to say, about 350,000 out of 400,000 men--are safely back in this country. Others are still fighting with the French, and fighting with considerable success in their local encounters against the enemy. We have also brought back a great mass of stores, rifles and munitions of all kinds which had been accumulated in France during the last nine months.


We have, therefore, in this Island today a very large and powerful military force. This force comprises all our best-trained and our finest troops, including scores of thousands of those who have already measured their quality against the Germans and found themselves at no disadvantage. We have under arms at the present time in this Island over a million and a quarter men. Behind these we have the Local Defense Volunteers, numbering half a million, only a portion of whom, however, are yet armed with rifles or other firearms. We have incorporated into our Defense Forces every man for whom we have a weapon. We expect very large additions to our weapons in the near future, and in preparation for this we intend forthwith to call up, drill and train further large numbers. Those who are not called up, or else are employed during the vast business of munitions production in all its branches--and their ramifications are innumerable--will serve their country best by remaining at their ordinary work until they receive their summons. We have also over here Dominions armies. The Canadians had actually landed in France, but have now been safely withdrawn, much disappointed, but in perfect order, with all their artillery and equipment. And these very high-class forces from the Dominions will now take part in the defense of the Mother Country.


Lest the account which I have given of these large forces should raise the question: Why did they not take part in the great battle in France? I must make it clear that, apart from the divisions training and organizing at home, only twelve divisions were equipped to fight upon a scale which justified their being sent abroad. And this was fully up to the number which the French had been led to expect would be available in France at the ninth month of the war. The rest of our forces at home have a fighting value for home defense which will, of course, steadily increase every week that passes. Thus, the invasion of Great Britain would at this time require the transportation across the sea of hostile armies on a very large scale, and after they had been so transported they would have to be continually maintained with all the masses of munitions and supplies which are required for continuous battle--as continuous battle it will surely be.


Here is where we come to the Navy--and after all, we have a Navy. Some people seem to forget that we have a Navy. We must remind them. For the last thirty years I have been concerned in discussions about the possibilities of oversea invasion, and I took the responsibility on behalf of the Admiralty, at the beginning of the last war, of allowing all regular troops to be sent out of the country. That was a very serious step to take, because our Territorials had only just been called up and were quite untrained. Therefore, this Island was for several months particularly denuded of fighting troops. The Admiralty had confidence at that time in their ability to prevent a mass invasion even though at that time the Germans had a magnificent battle fleet in the proportion of 10 to 16, even though they were capable of fighting a general engagement every day and any day, whereas now they have only a couple of heavy ships worth speaking of--the Scharnhorst and the Gneisenau. We are also told that the Italian Navy is to come out and gain sea superiority in these waters. If they seriously intend it, I shall only say that we shall be delighted to offer Signor Mussolini a free and safeguarded passage through the Strait of Gibraltar in order that he may play the part to which he aspires. There is a general curiosity in the British Fleet to find out whether the Italians are up to the level they were at in the last war or whether they have fallen off at all.


Therefore, it seems to me that as far as sea-borne invasion on a great scale is concerned, we are far more capable of meeting it today than we were at many periods in the last war and during the early months of this war, before our other troops were trained, and while the B.E.F. had proceeded abroad. Now, the Navy have never pretended to be able to prevent raids by bodies of 5,000 or 10,000 men flung suddenly across and thrown ashore at several points on the coast some dark night or foggy morning. The efficacy of sea power, especially under modern conditions, depends upon the invading force being of large size; It has to be of large size, in view of our military strength, to be of any use. If it is of large size, then the Navy have something they can find and meet and, as it were, bite on. Now, we must remember that even five divisions, however lightly equipped, would require 200 to 250 ships, and with modern air reconnaissance and photography it would not be easy to collect such an armada, marshal it, and conduct it across the sea without any powerful naval forces to escort it; and there would be very great possibilities, to put it mildly, that this armada would be intercepted long before it reached the coast, and all the men drowned in the sea or, at the worst blown to pieces with their equipment while they were trying to land. We also have a great system of minefields, recently strongly reinforced, through which we alone know the channels. If the enemy tries to sweep passages through these minefields, it will be the task of the Navy to destroy the mine-sweepers and any other forces employed to protect them. There should be no difficulty in this, owing to our great superiority at sea.


Those are the regular, well-tested, well-proved arguments on which we have relied during many years in peace and war. But the question is whether there are any new methods by which those solid assurances can be circumvented. Odd as it may seem, some attention has been given to this by the Admiralty, whose prime duty and responsibility is to destroy any large sea-borne expedition before it reaches, or at the moment when it reaches, these shores. It would not be a good thing for me to go into details of this. It might suggest ideas to other people which they have not thought of, and they would not be likely to give us any of their ideas in exchange. All I will say is that untiring vigilance and mind-searching must be devoted to the subject, because the enemy is crafty and cunning and full of novel treacheries and stratagems. The House may be assured that the utmost ingenuity is being displayed and imagination is being evoked from large numbers of competent officers, well-trained in tactics and thoroughly up to date, to measure and counterwork novel possibilities. Untiring vigilance and untiring searching of the mind is being, and must be, devoted to the subject, because, remember, the enemy is crafty and there is no dirty trick he will not do.


Some people will ask why, then, was it that the British Navy was not able to prevent the movement of a large army from Germany into Norway across the Skagerrak? But the conditions in the Channel and in the North Sea are in no way like those which prevail in the Skagerrak. In the Skagerrak, because of the distance, we could give no air support to our surface ships, and consequently, lying as we did close to the enemy's main air power, we were compelled to use only our submarines. We could not enforce the decisive blockade or interruption which is possible from surface vessels. Our submarines took a heavy toll but could not, by themselves, prevent the invasion of Norway. In the Channel and in the North Sea, on the other hand, our superior naval surface forces, aided by our submarines, will operate with close and effective air assistance.


This brings me, naturally, to the great question of invasion from the air, and of the impending struggle between the British and German Air Forces. It seems quite clear that no invasion on a scale beyond the capacity of our land forces to crush speedily is likely to take place from the air until our Air Force has been definitely overpowered. In the meantime, there may be raids by parachute troops and attempted descents of airborne soldiers. We should be able to give those gentry a warm reception both in the air and on the ground, if they reach it in any condition to continue the dispute. But the great question is: Can we break Hitler's air weapon? Now, of course, it is a very great pity that we have not got an Air Force at least equal to that of the most powerful enemy within striking distance of these shores. But we have a very powerful Air Force which has proved itself far superior in quality, both in men and in many types of machine, to what we have met so far in the numerous and fierce air battles which have been fought with the Germans. In France, where we were at a considerable disadvantage and lost many machines on the ground when they were standing round the aerodromes, we were accustomed to inflict in the air losses of as much as two and two-and-a-half to one. In the fighting over Dunkirk, which was a sort of no-man's-land, we undoubtedly beat the German Air Force, and gained the mastery of the local air, inflicting here a loss of three or four to one day after day. Anyone who looks at the photographs which were published a week or so ago of the re-embarkation, showing the masses of troops assembled on the beach and forming an ideal target for hours at a time, must realize that this re-embarkation would not have been possible unless the enemy had resigned all hope of recovering air superiority at that time and at that place.


In the defense of this Island the advantages to the defenders will be much greater than they were in the fighting around Dunkirk. We hope to improve on the rate of three or four to one which was realized at Dunkirk; and in addition all our injured machines and their crews which get down safely--and, surprisingly, a very great many injured machines and men do get down safely in modern air fighting--all of these will fall, in an attack upon these Islands, on friendly soil and live to fight another day; whereas all the injured enemy machines and their complements will be total losses as far as the war is concerned.


During the great battle in France, we gave very powerful and continuous aid to the French Army, both by fighters and bombers; but in spite of every kind of pressure we never would allow the entire metropolitan fighter strength of the Air Force to be consumed. This decision was painful, but it was also right, because the fortunes of the battle in France could not have been decisively affected even if we had thrown in our entire fighter force. That battle was lost by the unfortunate strategical opening, by the extraordinary and unforseen power of the armored columns, and by the great preponderance of the German Army in numbers. Our fighter Air Force might easily have been exhausted as a mere accident in that great struggle, and then we should have found ourselves at the present time in a very serious plight. But as it is, I am happy to inform the House that our fighter strength is stronger at the present time relatively to the Germans, who have suffered terrible losses, than it has ever been; and consequently we believe ourselves possessed of the capacity to continue the war in the air under better conditions than we have ever experienced before. I look forward confidently to the exploits of our fighter pilots--these splendid men, this brilliant youth--who will have the glory of saving their native land, their island home, and all they love, from the most deadly of all attacks.


There remains, of course, the danger of bombing attacks, which will certainly be made very soon upon us by the bomber forces of the enemy. It is true that the German bomber force is superior in numbers to ours; but we have a very large bomber force also, which we shall use to strike at military targets in Germany without intermission. I do not at all underrate the severity of the ordeal which lies before us; but I believe our countrymen will show themselves capable of standing up to it, like the brave men of Barcelona, and will be able to stand up to it, and carry on in spite of it, at least as well as any other people in the world. Much will depend upon this; every man and every woman will have the chance to show the finest qualities of their race, and render the highest service to their cause. For all of us, at this time, whatever our sphere, our station, our occupation or our duties, it will be a help to remember the famous lines:


He nothing common did or mean, Upon that memorable scene.


I have thought it right upon this occasion to give the House and the country some indication of the solid, practical grounds upon which we base our inflexible resolve to continue the war. There are a good many people who say, 'Never mind. Win or lose, sink or swim, better die than submit to tyranny--and such a tyranny.' And I do not dissociate myself from them. But I can assure them that our professional advisers of the three Services unitedly advise that we should carry on the war, and that there are good and reasonable hopes of final victory. We have fully informed and consulted all the self-governing Dominions, these great communities far beyond the oceans who have been built up on our laws and on our civilization, and who are absolutely free to choose their course, but are absolutely devoted to the ancient Motherland, and who feel themselves inspired by the same emotions which lead me to stake our all upon duty and honor. We have fully consulted them, and I have received from their Prime Ministers, Mr. Mackenzie King of Canada, Mr. Menzies of Australia, Mr. Fraser of New Zealand, and General Smuts of South Africa--that wonderful man, with his immense profound mind, and his eye watching from a distance the whole panorama of European affairs--I have received from all these eminent men, who all have Governments behind them elected on wide franchises, who are all there because they represent the will of their people, messages couched in the most moving terms in which they endorse our decision to fight on, and declare themselves ready to share our fortunes and to persevere to the end. That is what we are going to do.


We may now ask ourselves: In what way has our position worsened since the beginning of the war? It has worsened by the fact that the Germans have conquered a large part of the coast line of Western Europe, and many small countries have been overrun by them. This aggravates the possibilities of air attack and adds to our naval preoccupations. It in no way diminishes, but on the contrary definitely increases, the power of our long-distance blockade. Similarly, the entrance of Italy into the war increases the power of our long-distance blockade. We have stopped the worst leak by that. We do not know whether military resistance will come to an end in France or not, but should it do so, then of course the Germans will be able to concentrate their forces, both military and industrial, upon us. But for the reasons I have given to the House these will not be found so easy to apply. If invasion has become more imminent, as no doubt it has, we, being relieved from the task of maintaining a large army in France, have far larger and more efficient forces to meet it.


If Hitler can bring under his despotic control the industries of the countries he has conquered, this will add greatly to his already vast armament output. On the other hand, this will not happen immediately, and we are now assured of immense, continuous and increasing support in supplies and munitions of all kinds from the United States; and especially of aeroplanes and pilots from the Dominions and across the oceans coming from regions which are beyond the reach of enemy bombers.


I do not see how any of these factors can operate to our detriment on balance before the winter comes; and the winter will impose a strain upon the Nazi regime, with almost all Europe writhing and starving under its cruel heel, which, for all their ruthlessness, will run them very hard. We must not forget that from the moment when we declared war on the 3rd September it was always possible for Germany to turn all her Air Force upon this country, together with any other devices of invasion she might conceive, and that France could have done little or nothing to prevent her doing so. We have, therefore, lived under this danger, in principle and in a slightly modified form, during all these months. In the meanwhile, however, we have enormously improved our methods of defense, and we have learned what we had no right to assume at the beginning, namely, that the individual aircraft and the individual British pilot have a sure and definite superiority. Therefore, in casting up this dread balance sheet and contemplating our dangers with a disillusioned eye, I see great reason for intense vigilance and exertion, but none whatever for panic or despair.


During the first four years of the last war the Allies experienced nothing but disaster and disappointment. That was our constant fear: one blow after another, terrible losses, frightful dangers. Everything miscarried. And yet at the end of those four years the morale of the Allies was higher than that of the Germans, who had moved from one aggressive triumph to another, and who stood everywhere triumphant invaders of the lands into which they had broken. During that war we repeatedly asked ourselves the question: 'How are we going to win?' And no one was able ever to answer it with much precision, until at the end, quite suddenly, quite unexpectedly, our terrible foe collapsed before us, and we were so glutted with victory that in our folly we threw it away.


We do not yet know what will happen in France or whether the French resistance will be prolonged, both in France and in the French Empire overseas. The French Government will be throwing away great opportunities and casting adrift their future if they do not continue the war in accordance with their treaty obligations, from which we have not felt able to release them. The House will have read the historic declaration in which, at the desire of many Frenchmen--and of our own hearts--we have proclaimed our willingness at the darkest hour in French history to conclude a union of common citizenship in this struggle. However matters may go in France or with the French Government, or other French Governments, we in this Island and in the British Empire will never lose our sense of comradeship with the French people. If we are now called upon to endure what they have been suffering, we shall emulate their courage, and if final victory rewards our toils they shall share the gains, aye, and freedom shall be restored to all. We abate nothing of our just demands; not one jot or tittle do we recede. Czechs, Poles, Norwegians, Dutch, Belgians have joined their causes to our own. All these shall be restored.


What General Weygand called the Battle of France is over. I expect that the Battle of Britain is about to begin. Upon this battle depends the survival of Christian civilization. Upon it depends our own British life, and the long continuity of our institutions and our Empire. The whole fury and might of the enemy must very soon be turned on us.


Hitler knows that he will have to break us in this Island or lose the war. If we can stand up to him, all Europe may be free and the life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands. But if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science.


Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that if the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say, 'This was their finest hour.' (RealAudio :22)

Ralph I am no macho guy. I thought if the first two or so shocks really hurt I would have Dr. Z give me a shot. They hurt, but nothing I could not deal with so after 10 shocks I could read a book or have a nice chat with Dr. Z which I did. I really think that pain can be partly perception of what you expect. If you really expect some procedure is really going to hurt it probably will live up to your expectations. Now I realize that most pain is just that PAIN! and no matter what you think it is still pain. How have some of these crazy people had surgery using accupuncture or hypnosis as a pain reliever? I watched one guy having his appendix being removed using self hypnosins (on TV). midway through the surgery he suddenly started to feel pain big time and they had to put him under. I also a Colonel in Vietnam have his leg removed above the knee with no shots, not nothing. Due to his injuries they could not put him to sleep. He cursed everyone in sight as they performed the procedure but he did not lose conciousness or go crazy. A battlefield film crew filmed this.

Since the ESWT equipment is smaller than a desk it could be done in the back of a truck and it would make no difference. Dr. Z has a fancy mobile home he operates out of and it is better than many Doctor's offices I have been in. If there is such a thing as a mobile ESWT machine I am unaware. I think they are all the same. We have several mobile ESWL machines for removing kidney stones in Arkansas. This is much more of a serious procedure than ESWT but uses the same technology. They are operated by major hospitals. They use the same equipment as used in the hospital.

I was in the Big Apple today visiting some friends when I heard a radio ESWT ad that said that all companies that use mobile ESWT equipment should be avoided. The ad said the equipment should not be trusted because it gets bounced around in a truck and as a result doesn't work properly. The ad continued to say that only the ESWT machine at some fixed site in Westchester NY(I didn't catch the name of the company) should be trusted. Dr Z- isn't your Dornier mobile? I wonder if Dornier would be interested in hearing that their machine are not to be trusted if they are transported. Hey Scott R I think you are involved in ESWT in the New York area aren't you? Would you have any idea who the company is that put out the ad? I had ESWT with a mobile machine and it worked just fine.

Proper method of injecting cortisone into the Plantar Fascia View Thread
Posted by JB1947 on 2/26/05 at 17:46



No one on the board has addressed the "sewing method of injecting the cortisone over several minutes." I was personally surprised that it was done this away.....I thought one would just inject the needle in one place and that would be it. Do other podiatrists/doctors use this method? My podiatrist injected the cortisone over a ten minute period in a sewing type motion to "break up scar tissue."

The "sewing method of injecting the steroid" is something my podiatrist uses and calls it this method because while the needle is still in place (under the skin), he takes it and zig zags or pulls up on the needle to move it into different areas of the plantar fascia to break up scar tissue and thus injects the steroid into different areas of the fascia. I was surprised at this method myself. Please address this! Thank you in advanced

Re: Plantar Fascia Rupture from Cortisone Injections? View Thread
Posted by JB1947 on 2/22/05 at 21:56

I won't massage with the marbles anymore but I'm sure it is still OK to pick them up with my toes......a standard exercise for range of motion of the foot.

I too thought there might be some nerve damage but no tests have been done.

I was surprised at this method myself and do not ever plan on another INJECTION! I do believe this was the cause of the rupture. I am gun shy about going back to this particular podiatrist.

I live in Houston, Texas.

Karen,

I'm sorry that you've run into unfeeling doctors. Dr. Z gives you good advice. A podiatrist would know how to help you. And the heel pain book will give you all kinds of helpful information.

Good luck!

Re: help needed for night splint (another question) View Thread
Posted by z.g on 9/18/04 at 15:17

Thanks for the responses..
ive tried lately to 'improvize' (just to check no more) a night splint using elastic band and a book and to sleep with it with angle of 90 degree
(the elastic band is tied to the bed) it really helped me with the pain in the heel area, but it increased me (significantly) the pain near the toes and in the front part of the foot (also near the toes) !, is it possible that i should not be using a night splint ? (what i mean is if its a 'known' problem that night splint can cause pain in the front of the feet)

I WOULD REALY THANK YOUR ADVICE because im considering to order the night splint this week

help needed for night splint View Thread
Posted by z.g on 9/18/04 at 04:00

Hi
i want to buy a night splint, i have some questions :
is the angle of the night splint 'fixed' or should it be adjustable ?
how long should i use the night splint (6 weeks or all the time?)
what is the angle that should be between the leg and the feet ?

p.s
i dont live in U.S and where i live a standard night splint costs ~125$ therefore im thinking of buying it through the net, do you have a recomendation ?

Thanks

Well, z.g, I'm not a doctor but you don't mention having gone to one and gotten a definitive diagnosis. I would think that should be your first step, no pun intended. Then you could find out if the stretches you are dong are the correct ones for the condition you have. In the meantime, many of us here use Julie's Yoga Stretches and find them to be the most effective.

Good luck!

streches View Thread
Posted by z.g on 9/04/04 at 00:55

Hi
i have pain on my right foot for a year now... it has the syptoms of pf
for the last months i had pain near my heel on the inner side
ive started doing streches 2 weeks ago, every day for 1/2 an hour 2 times a day, it seriously decreased the pain near my heel, but steal, i have pain over my arch, i dont feel comfortable when i step over my foot,i feel like im stepping on a 'stick' under my arch, and the bottom line is,i dont 'realy' feel healthy, the thing is by now im quite flexible in the right foot even more than the left (healthy) one
is it possible i got to a stage where the streches are not effective ?
how can i decrease the pain in the arch ? (the pain in the heel decreased)
how long does it take to 'realy' feel better after doing streches ?(1 month ,2 etc...) im asking that because until 2-3 weeks ago i didnt do any streches, but as i said, im quite flexible
Thanks

z.g - the problem with feet is that they consist of loads of little bones, ligaments, muscles, nerves and stuff, all connected together by complicated hinges and attachments. The sort of thing that could happen is after you were stung by a hornet (very painful) it caused all the tissues in the area to swell and maybe the ligaments that go fore and aft on the foot to tighten up (hence the stepping on a stick feeling). You walk on it with a different gait, start putting pressure on a muscle or tendon on the outside of the foot that doesn't expect it, so that starts to protest. In an effort to avoid that hurting, you start to pronate (roll the ankle inwards) to protect the outside of the foot. This damages the band of muscle that runs around your foot, and makes your achilles tendon pull, which pulls on the attachment where the plantar fascia also attaches, which causes the heel pain......and so on. The symptoms keep changing because you are progressively damaging more of your foot with every hobble.

By now you might need any number of things, but reading Scott's heel pain book would be a good start as he has lots of tips for working with and understanding the problem.

Hi
my case is a little different
as i said earlier, it all began after i stepped over a wasp (it was actually a 'mail' hornet) anyway, in the first 3 months i had pain in the front area of my foot, near the end of the arch towords the toes, the doctors i saw suspected morton's neuiroma, but it didnt show in any check including mri, bone scan, ultra sound and more ... after ~7 months of pain, i started having pains in the inner side of the foot near the heel, but only after 7 months !
until then i always had a feeling like im stepping over a stick (between my heel and toes) when i stepped on my foot, and i feel that until now.
now my major pain is all over the facsiitis... more pain is in the lower part towords the heel .... it is possible to say i didnt do any thing helpful until today (for almost a year :-( ) because i wasnt diagnosed correctly ....
well, if you read until here i admire you ...
i would be glad to hear your opinion ...

z.g.,
if you have had pain for more than 3 months...i would suggest you see a doctor who specializes in foot care (a podiatrist). until you are diagnosed properly and get a plan for treatment started, you are just playing guessing games, and possibly doing more damage that will make your recovery slower.
my problem started in february. my heel felt as if i jumped out a tree and landed just on one heel. its better than it was, but it is still painful many days..especially first thing in the morning.
we all get DOWN at times. myself, i tear up a few times a week thinking of all i am missing. i was always an avid walker and active person. now, shopping can be a challenge.
this web site if crammed full of nice people who will support you and guide you...BUT..hook yourself up with a GOOD medical person.

Z.G.

My very first symptom that I mentioned to folks at work was that I felt like I was wearing stretch pants with the fabric under your arch that were way to little. A real pulling tight feeling It ached between my toes and heel and No first morning pain. I stood all day and it just got worse and worse as the day passed till I now cannot work at all. Then as it got worse, it felt like I was standing on broken glass and I could not walk with a normal gait. I could barely move, I guess I still shuffle around the house and I get a wheel cart when I go anywhere which is not often. Bless Wal-mart for having them available to us.

Hi
ive been having serious pain in my right foot over the last year
believe it or not it all started after i stepped over a wasp, barefoot...
i have pain all over my arch, in the 'middle' of the foot, 3 months ago i started having pain around the heel, in the inner side of the foot, (like in the area pointed in the image on this site home page)
by all syptoms, it looks like i have pf, although, my strongest pains are not in the morning, but after physical activity (walking :-) ). the thing that characterize my problem the most is when im stepping on the foot, i feel like im stepping on a stick, stucked between my heel and toes, does anyone feel like this too ?
to be honest, i got into a depression lately, im 27 and a 'sports maniac'
i used to train 6 times a week before i got injured, and for the last year i didnt train at all, i feel like a door mat :-(
i also cannot do many other activities (outdoor,dancing etc ..)

is it possible to recover from this nightmare ?
does it end ?

i would thank you a lot if you can give me some optimizem ...

I was recently diagnosed with Cubiod Syndrome. My Xrays showed nothing, and after my MRI's, my podiatrist diagnosed me with this. I had a bruise on my cubiod bone. I work retail and often zig zag throught he aisles if the store. My doctor said most likely I have had this all my life, and upon reflecting, I remembered easily twisting my ankle walking through the snow in snow boots. I used to be in dancing when I was younger, and liked to see how long I could walk around on my toes (the balls of my feet). Sports medicine in high school told me I had bad ankles and told me I should do these exercises with elastic/ rubber bands, but being the typical teenager, I did thm a couple of times, and quit. Now that I am 28, I am not nearly as active as I was in high school, therefore my muscles are not nearly the same. My doctor put me in a walking cast (removable cast) for 5 weeks, and now I am strapping my foot with tape, using tape spray and athletic tape after each time I shower, followed by an ace bandage wrap, and am on a sneaker pass for work. I threw out all my heels.. never again! The strapping technique might help you: You will need the assistance of another person to spray the tape spray on your foot, and tape it. First make sure your foot is clean and dry. Have the other person spray the spray on the bottom of the foot and sides, close enough that it tickles and is cold. Let the spray dry.. it may drip off your foot, so put some newspaper or something on the floor underneath as you are doing this. The tape spray can be found at a sporting goods store. You might want to call around before going to one, as not too many stores carry it. Use 2 1/2" athletic tape and begin taping under the joint of the little toe on the side/ upside of the foot (do not tape the joint of the little toe itself because this will cause your little toe to turn outwards.. painful!! .. proceeding around the foot, towards the heel, going right by the cuboid bone. Continue to wrap around the exterior of the heel and proceed to the other side of the foot, and up to the ball of the foot, near the big toe. After this tape is secure, begin to tape (strap the foot) applying the beginning of a piece of tape on the exterior of the foot, to the tape already applied, by the heel area and pull tightly, securely, and rip off tape and secure it to the other side of the foot where the tape is already on the other side. Continue to do this up the foot ( make sure the strapping is secure, tight especially near the cuboid bone. Remember, exterior, to interior. The tape does not go around the entire foot (you do not loop it over/under at all) when you reach your arch area, and up to your big toe, have the person taping you or yourself, pull forward (towards you) on your big toe as to secure the arch in your foot. When done taping, wrap with a 2 1/2" ace bandage, and I wear New Balance walking sneakers on top of all this. I had to buy wide sneakers to accomadate the wrapping, and New Balance usually runs a size smaller, so buy at least 1/2 size higher if not 1 size higher.. whichever feels better. I have been strapping with tape now for 3 weeks, and the cuboid bone appears flush with my foot, as my other foot it is still sticking out. My posture is something I must be aware of now.. I am a foot dragger, and hear the echo of my doctors voice saying, Amy, USE YOUR KNEES! Nurses shoes did not seem comfortable at all. Walking on a flat surface with the strapping in the sneakers feels wonderful, the only problems I have had is on slope or if I don't use my knees and trip or accidently step on something pointy, like a rock or something. It has been a pain to plan showering, and my husband strapping me up, but not as painful as trying to get around without all this. My doctor reccommended Physical therapy.. if I felt like it, and I have been throwing around the idea of going, but as seeing that not too many here with this syndrome have had any help from physical therapy, I am reluctant to go. If anyone knows any kind of exercises for this condition that have helped them, please let me know. I wish you all the best of luck with our similar condition, and hope this tape "strapping" technique helps you as it has me.
GOOD LUCK!

What would be done, other than surgery? I don't desire surgery, but I don't desire the pain, either. I'm already at the max for my pain meds, as mentioned in the original post. What would be a way of determining true PF? The podiatrist that did the surgery was convinced that it was PF. Prior to the surgery on the right foot, I hadn't mentioned the B27 to him because I wasn't aware of the implications. It wasn't till I was doing some research for my Serology/Blood Bank/HLA class that I happened upon this link between heel pain and B27 (not homozygous in my case).

Re: Shoes View Thread

Nancy,
This is the price we pay for "fashion" in running shoes. They design them with more stitching and small pieces of leather for fashion.

My suggestion, in what ever brand you choose, is to look for ones that do not have as much leather on them (more mesh on the toe box), and hardly any stitching on the side of it. Also look for high toe boxes. Some of the manufacturers are cheating women out of sizable toe boxes making them flatter and more narrow. They don't do that to the mens.

No doubt you have already noticed the size changes. No longer is a 9 a real 9. It makes me angry that we can send people to the moon, but we can make shoes in uniform sizes. It's pretty sad when every catalog with running shoes tells you to size up before you order.

Where are those good old days when a ladies size 9 shoe was really a nine. Most running shoes were white and free of zig zag stitched pieces of leather that hurt your toes?

Ah, the Cretan diet! A topic close to my heart. Cretan food is essentially Greek, but there are Turkish and Italian influences too. Crete is of course part of Greece, but for centuries was occupied by the Venetians and the Turks. So yes, it is Mediterranean, and yes, I love it. It is considered to be the healthiest in the world (and not just by Cretans - there has been Research). The Cretan population appparently has the lowest incidence of heart disease and many types of cancer in the western world: this is thought to be due to their huge consumption of olive oil, but also to the fact that their diet is generally healthy and balanced. Most of the food consumed on the island is grown there, which is always a good sign, and much of it is chemical-and-additive free (though that is changing as agriculture gets more intensive in the struggle to keep up with tourism). The sea is still- relatively - full of fish (though that is changing too, for the same reason) and there is no intensive livestock farming or meat production. The meat - principally lamb and goat, but also pork - all comes from animals that have lived and grazed outdoors in the hills (well, not the pigs - but they're naturally reared too). I don't eat much meat at home, but I can't resist it when I'm in Crete - it's a different story. And the chicken, which I forgot to mention, tastes like chicken (if you can remember what that was like). And the eggs taste like eggs. Good, simple food, healthy and fresh. There's a little taverna in the mountain village of Anopolis, above Loutro, where Eva, who lived in Brooklyn for 22 years and speaks perfect Brooklyn English, cooks wonderful omelettes - and wonderful food of all kinds, everything either grown or raised on the surrounding plain. It's a long uphill slog - 2,300 feet up a precipitous zigzag path, but I always go at least once every time I'm there, not just for breakfast or lunch but because it's such a marvellous place to be, quiet and traditional and beautiful.

An excellent book,if you're interested, is Cretan Cooking by Nikos and Maria Psilakis. They have also written a fascinating book on Olive Oil, called The Secret of Good Health.

So just a quick word about yoga, and then I must stop. I endeavour to teach the whole of yoga, not just postures. My initial training was with the British Wheel of Yoga, and I then subsequently did several more years of training in the Bihar School tradition. I do know Kripalu Yoga, and think it is very good (have you read Donna Farhi's books?) In fact I gave a workshop last week at a new Kripalu studio in Dorking, Surrey - but that was them experiencing my teaching, not me theirs. I'd like to know more about it: everything I do know sounds good. Have you been practising for long?

Clark 49%, Bush 40%: Stunning Zogby Blind Bio Results Turbo Charge Draft Wesley Clark Effort; Pledges Reach $800,000
(Washington, DC), August 26, 2003- DraftWesleyClark.com, the national campaign to draft former General Wesley Clark for President, has experienced an explosion in traffic and energy in the wake of its release of stunning results from a Zogby poll commissioned by the group. Using a “blind bio” approach, the poll showed General Clark defeating all current Democratic candidates, and beating President Bush 49.4% to 40.2%. (see www.DraftWesleyClark.com/poll.htm for full results)

“Clearly, these stunning poll results have unleashed an entirely new wave of enthusiasm for a Clark candidacy,” said John Hlinko, co-founder of the effort. “DraftWesleyClark.com already had the second most traffic of all the Presidential candidate sites – but yesterday we had our most traffic ever. The combination of these poll results and our performance in the ‘modem primary’ clearly shows the depth of popular support for General Clark.”

The campaign also announced that pledges to its “General Fund” – pledges of support made by supporters to a potential Clark candidacy -- had reached $800,000. It has set a goal to reach $1,000,000 by Labor Day.

DraftWesleyClark.com released the results of the poll yesterday, live on C-SPAN. They were presented as part of an overall report by political analyst and former professor, Chris Kofinis, Ph.D.

The poll was commissioned by DraftWesleyClark.com, and conducted by John Zogby, one of the nation’s most prominent and respected pollsters. In an effort to best assess the potential for a Clark candidacy, given that he is not yet a declared candidate, the poll included several “blind bio” questions. For these, subjects polled were given biographical descriptions of the candidates, rather than actual names. All questions and bios were screened and approved by John Zogby for fairness and objectivity.

Among the findings:

· “Too Late?” – 84.1% of likely Democratic primary voters say it is not too late for a new entrant into the race to win their support;
· “Military/National Security” – 73.5% of all likely voters rate military/national security experience as “very” or “somewhat” important for a presidential candidate;
· “Clark vs. Dems” -- Clark comes in first in a blind-bio match-up versus six key Democratic candidates (Dean, Kerry, Edwards, Lieberman, Gephardt, Edwards, and Graham);
· “Clark vs. Bush” -- Clark wins 49.4% to 40.2% in a blind-bio match-up versus President Bush among a national poll of likely voters;
· Even when the poll question referred solely to candidate names (no bio information), Clark jumped to 5th place (4.9%) nationally among likely Democratic primary voters – despite his low name recognition, and the fact that he has not spent a dime.

“These Zogby poll results suggest that the race for the Democratic nomination is wide open, and that likely primary voters are definitely open to another candidate entering the race,” said Dr. Kofinis. “Further, the poll results tell us that Clark has the qualities to compete against the elite of the Democratic field, and to challenge and potentially defeat President Bush in 2004.”

See (see www.DraftWesleyClark.com/poll.htm for full results).

ABOUT THE POLL
The poll was conducted between August 16th and 19th, using 1,019 likely voters chosen nationwide. The margin of error is +/- 3.2% for the overall sample, and +/- 4.1% for the sample of likely Democratic primary voters.

ABOUT DRAFTWESLEYCLARK.COM
Launched in April, 2003, DraftWesleyClark.com has collected tens of thousands of letters urging General Clark to run, raised over $800,000 in pledges, and built a network of volunteer leaders, ready to serve – if General Clark chooses to lead. DraftWesleyClark.com has already been featured on Good Morning America, Meet The Press, CBS Evening News, Crossfire, CNN, MSNBC, and Fox, as well as in the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Esquire and Newsweek.

Re: Mars View Thread
Posted by Ed Davis,DPM on 8/25/03 at 18:45

Here is the rest of the story... actually the day after tommorrow for the "big" day....



Mars sparkles as a reddish-orange point of light over Poodle Rock at Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada.

Click through 20 years of the "greatest hits" from the Red Planet.


Have a close encounter with Mars
Planet reaches its brightest point in recorded history Aug. 27

By Joe Rao
SPACE.COM


Aug. 19 — Communicating with spacecraft at Mars always involves a wait. Depending on how far apart the planets are, it can take up to 21 minutes to get a signal from Earth to the Red Planet, resulting in a round-trip time of more than 40 minutes. The lag can be agonizing for an engineer trying to steer a surface probe or debug a software problem. On Aug. 27, when Mars is closer to Earth than ever in human history, the one-way travel time of light and radio signals will be just 3 minutes and 6 seconds.




ASTRONOMERS LOVE TO measure cosmic distances in light-years. In this case, you can think of the distance between the two planets as being 186 light-seconds.
Earthlings have an historic chance to see Mars at its brightest, and to see the Red Planet at any given instant as it existed just 186 seconds earlier in time.

START TONIGHT
Just look in the east-southeast sky on any clear evening soon after darkness falls and you’ll see a fiery yellow-orange “star” blazing brilliantly.




Named for the Roman god of war, Mars is often called the Red Planet. But anyone who takes even a casual glance will see that it’s more like a yellowish orange — the color of a dry desert under a high sun. Mars is much like a desert, in fact, dry and covered in sandlike dust. So a desert under the sun is exactly what you’re looking at, since Mars is visible because of the sunlight it reflects our way.
From now into September, Mars shines with a topaz glow that is brighter than any other object in its region of the sky, except on those nights when the moon is in the general vicinity.
As with any unusually close approach of Mars to Earth, this one makes Mars appear exceptionally brilliant and indeed, from now into the early fall, Mars will easily outshine Sirius (the brightest of all stars) and even Jupiter (the planet normally second in brightness only to Venus).
Skywatchers should note, however, that to the naked eye Mars still appears as a point of light, not anything near as impressive as the moon. Telescopes are required to glimpse views of any features on the surface of Mars.

THE SETUP, BY THE NUMBERS
On Aug. 28, Mars will reach “opposition,” the moment when the sun, Earth and Mars form a straight line in space, with Earth and Mars on the same side of the all-important star.
When a planet reaches opposition, it lies exactly opposite the sun in our sky: It rises at sunset, reaches its highest point in the sky at midnight, and sets at sunrise. To imagine this from above, envision the solar system as a giant racetrack. Earth is moving in the inner lane. Mars comes to opposition when the faster-moving Earth overtakes and passes the outer planet.
Advertisement





Mars comes to opposition about every 26 months. But because Earth and Mars both have elliptical orbits — not quite circular — no two oppositions are created equal.
This year’s opposition is superior to all the others in nearly 60,000 years because Mars will be very near its closest point to the sun (perihelion) when coming to opposition. Such “perihelic oppositions” of Mars are rather infrequent, occurring about every 15 to 17 years.
Recent perihelic oppositions saw Mars approach Earth to within 35.1 million miles in September 1956, 34.9 million miles in August 1971 and 36.5 million miles in September 1988.
Because Earth and Mars follow elliptical orbits around the sun, Mars’ closest approach to Earth usually occurs several days before or after opposition. This year Mars arrives at perihelion just a scant 42 hours after its opposition.
So on Aug. 27, according to astronomer Myles Standish at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Mars will come within 34,646,418 miles of Earth at 5:51 a.m. ET, which is just about as close as it can possibly come.
At that moment, it will then take a light beam 3 minutes and 6 seconds to cross the interplanetary gulf between Earth and Mars.
Things won’t appear much different in the nights and mornings immediately surrounding that historic moment, so great observing can be done without worrying about the exact moment.
Opposition comes the following day, Aug. 28. The next opposition to bring Mars this close — closer, actually — will not occur until Aug. 29, 2287. The distance will be 34,603,170 miles.

THE SHOW GOES ON
Even after the main event this year, Mars’ inevitable fade-down will initially be very slow and gradual.
In fact, it will still continue to shine at its absolute brightest magnitude of -2.9 through Sept. 2. (Astronomers use negative numbers on their scale of magnitude to denote the brightest objects.) Mars will still outshine Jupiter through Oct. 8. And it will continue to rival Sirius, the brightest of all stars, until Oct. 28.


The next opposition of Mars will come in early November 2005, but because Mars will then be more than 8 million miles farther from Earth than it is this month, it will appear to shine with just two-thirds of its peak 2003 radiance.
Interestingly, there is a long-term cycle of 79 years where the circumstances of any particular Mars opposition will replicate almost exactly.
On Aug. 22, 1924, for instance, Mars made nearly as close an approach to Earth as this year. In fact, at its closest in 1924 it was just 11,764 miles farther from Earth than it will be this Aug. 27. And 79 years from now, on Aug. 30, 2082, Mars will again make another exceptionally close approach to Earth, though again falling just short of matching this year’s proximity, by 78,487 miles.

Hi Sharon

Ok I am going to take a stab at this. No they cn't tell how old a lesion is. Many people have some lesions in their brain as they get older. Some neuroligical reasons someone might have leisions:TIAs, Cocaine abuse, alcoholism, head injury, alzheimers and just plain old. MS also causes leisions. The main tests given to determine if someone has MS are: MRI of brain and spine showing lesions, spinal tap (must contain a high number of a certain kind of anti-bodies known to fight off auto-immune diseases), and optic neuritis. Neuros will not dx MS unless you two of those tests come out positive. Optic Neuritis being the most definitive. Aside from that they will want to rule out every possible disease known to mankind before they dx without the presence of optic neuritis. It took Terri Garr fourteen years. There is no hurry up dx with MS.

If you go to the National Association for Multiple Sclerosis site you will find a message board. There is a moderator on the board named "Jazzgirl".
She also has TTS. Feel free to ask her for advice. She is very knowledgable. She is the only MS person on the board with TTS and will respond quickly if you mention that you once had it.


I am thinking of you! I have been there....$15,000.00 later my docs decided I have had TIAs and possibly fibro.

Also thanks for thinking of my brother....I'm a bit worried this time.

I wonder if their Doctors ever provided them with an effective pain reliever other than your typical NASID? Severe pain sot of creates more pain and it feeds on itself. If you can break the pain cycycle at least for a while it seems you have a better chance addressing the underlying condition.

Hey Tom,

So it hurts like hell from a few little sound wave zaps, does it? Can you imagine the pain if they went in and cut you!!! I think we all all go though different emotional stages with this injury. I think every person here as had to try to explain to their friends and family what is happening with them and their feet. You'll have people tell you to just get over it, and get on with your life. Myself, I was in denial for years, that all this pain could come from a simple case of PF !!

Your going to have to change your life for awhile, give your feet some rest. Dr. Z gave you some good suggestions. Read Scott's book, found elsewhere here on this site. Try whatever you think will help. Unfortunatly there is not usually one thing that will help to heal you, unless you are one of the lucky people who are cured in the first month or so. You have every right to bitch and moan, we've all been there. My suggesion is to try to find a good, compassionate doctor, who will "listen" to you. One who will not be afraid to use his prescription pad if necessary. Read, read, read, and see the best specialists you can afford. Document everything you try, every med you take, even if it's over the counter. I say this only because you will need it, if you can't cure your problems. Hopefully you won't need any of it, as a cure could be in your near future.

Good luck, most people are cured!!

SHOES: As for shoes, I've had very good experience Dansko clogs. The clogs are such that except for formal occasions you can wear them with most anything. When I went in to the shoe stoe run by the buy who makes orthotics and caters to lots of feet problems, I described my problem and he recommended the Dankso. I also wear birkenstocks for slippers around the house. There are two (maybe more, my store had two) Birkenstocks that seem to be designed as slippers (but priced like regular shoes!). They have flannel or sheepskin on the inside. As slippers they are expensive. As a treatment, they are relatively inexpensive if you consider how long you will be able to keep them. Lots of people on this board seem to like Birkenstocks for all day.

As for other suggestions, I gave up tennis, just as I was becoming locally competitive. I LOVE tennis. It was very hard and I swore I wouldn't give up tennis. But I did. Now I paint, and I love it (and I've never painted before in my life). I also have thought about going back to my piano (that sits lonely in the front room) but I imagine that will wait until I finish my school program. So basically, I guess I've traded sports for the arts. It's not a bad trade-off. I find that I can get in 1/2 hour of the following exercises if I haven't overdone it doing other things: biking (making sure to place my foot so it doesn't flex as I pedal), stair-stepping (after putting on an OTC foot brace to keep my foot from flexing too much), swimming (sometimes I don't kick so that I don't flex my feet, although I haven't done this much cuz getting to the pool is a pain and doesn't do much to prevent osteoporosis). I figure I could also do rowing but I don't like it, and I never do it right and mess up my back.

Good luck.

OK, finally, my long-awaited comments on the Epos study View Thread
Posted by elliott on 8/12/02 at 09:31


Due to Dr. Z's clues (thanks!), a little web sleuthing has finally yielded an abstract of the complete Dornier Epos study, well, at least through 12 weeks. The link below contains several interesting articles on ESWT, in particular the abstract I copied below it, which clearly matches everything Dr. Z said:

http://www.ismst.com/events/berlin_01_abstracts%20-%201.htm

Prospective randomized placebo controlled double blind multicenter study to evaluate safty and efficacy of extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) in chronic plantar fasciitis
Authors: M. Buch, MD,Orthopaedische Klinik, Kassel; L. Fleming, MD, Emory University, Atlanta, GA; G. Theodore, MD, Massachusetts General, Boston, MA; A. Amendola, MD, Fowler Kennedy Sports Medicine, London, Ontario; C. Bachmann, MD, Germering; C. Zingas, MD, Henry Ford, Detroit, MI
Institution: Orthopaedische Klinik Kassel, Wilhelmshöher Allee 345, 34131 Kassel

Problem:
ESWT has been used since 1995 to treat patients with plantar fasciitis who have failed available conventional therapies. Previous studies for this condition using this therapy conducted in Europe have not been carried out as a placebo controlled study.
Method:
A total of 150 patients met the inclusion/exclusion requirements and were enrolled into this study at 6 sites (76 randomized to the active group, 74 randomized to the sham group). A single treatment was performed (3800 shock waves, 0.36 mJ/mm²) with regional anaesthesia. Ultrasound controlled focussing was performed. The Sham treatment was achieved by the placement of a thin foam cushion on the therapy head preventing the shock waves from being delivered to the patient. Follow up was performed at 3-5 days, 6 weeks, 3 months, 6 months and 12 months post treatment. Sham patients meeting defined criteria were offered an active treatment at 3 months. Primary Efficacy Outcome was the difference between the Active treatment and the Sham treatment in the change from baseline in the VAS score for pain while walking for the first few minutes in the morning through three months post treatment. Primary Safety Evaluation was the number of adverse effects and severity of complications that were related to ESWT as assessed at three months by the investigator. Secondary Efficacy Outcomes included pain evaluation from the AOFAS Ankle-Hindfoot Scale Score, Roles and Maudsley score, the SF-12 score, pain measurement on palpation (point of tenderness) with an algometer, and the ROM Assessment from the AOFAS Ankle-Hindfoot. An independent statistical consultant performed the statistical analysis.
Result:
At 3 months 73 patients in the Active group and 73 patients in the Sham group were available for analysis. Four (4) patients discontinued the study prior to the 3 month follow up visit. The results of the study demonstrate that patients treated with ESWT have statistically and clinically significant improvements in the primary outcome parameter (p=0.01). The Roles and Maudsley score was statistically and clinically significant between treatment groups at 3 months post treatment (p= 0.03). Treatment related side effects are mild and of low incidence and included pain, ecchymosis, and edema.

------

So far, so good. We have yet to track down the details of the completed one-year study, and it is here that I just want to issue a few words of caution. The figures that Dr. Z gave for 12 weeks (60% improvement on VAS) exactly matches the figure given in Dr. Zingas' study; see link below:

http://www.aofas.org/00summer/200007130759.asp

Well, Dr. Zingas is clearly part of the larger Dornier study; his name is one of the authors appearing at the top of the Dornier abstract. But his 60% was derived from a grand total of 7 patients (in fact it was 6 out of 7 that reached 60%). It just makes me wonder whether the 60% and 92% were from a much smaller sample (perhaps too small) derived from far fewer sites. I don't think I'm out of line for wondering this. So before we jump to definitive conclusions about the efficacy of ESWT, it is fair to want to know the sample size upon which the conclusions are based. Hopefully we can track this down in time. (Pauline, since Dr. Zingas is in fact part of this study, if you can ask him anything that will shed light on this, we will all benefit.)

That said, there are other completed studies on ESWT, e.g. using the Ossatron. Based on similar criteria (e.g. six months minimum conservative care), those studies seem to show that ESWT has an overall success/improvement rate in the neighborhood of 75% (sometimes higher depending on the definitions used—I'll be a little loose with the exact definitions for brevity), but also of note is that the sham-ESWT treatment group consistently seems to get a success/improvement rate in the neighborhood of 50%. Based on this, two points are worth making: The first point is that ESWT is statistically superior to the sham treatment, in fact 50% superior to it (.75/.5 –1), no doubt about it (although more conservative care for the non-ESWT group should no doubt close this gap). The second is that a random PF patient who gets ESWT treatment seems to have only a 25% chance (.75 - .25) of actually being cured as a result of the ESWT itself. That, to me, is an eye-opener, a reason to possibly consider conservative options for a longer period of time before getting ESWT.

As an example, in my first link above there is yet another abstract of a double-blind study, "Shockwave therapy for painful heel spur: results of a prospective randomized double blind study", by Abt, et al in Germany. They gave orthotics to each group but nothing else (go to the link for more details). Here are the results after 48 weeks--almost a year!—where Group I (17 patients) is the ESWT group, group II (15 patients) the sham ESWT group (for those not familiar with European journals, they use a comma instead of a decimal point):


Results:
Tolerable puncture pressure at the plantar area applied with a 1 cm2 stamp increased from 116,7/140,3 N (Group I/II) to 223,2/159,3 N after 48 weeks (p = 0,02). Morning pain decreased from 5,7/5,3 down to 0,7/2,2 (p = 0,04). Resting pain showed improvement from 4,6/3 down to 0,7/1,8 (p = 0,02). Painfree barefoot walking for 60 or more minutes was possible for 17,6/13,3 % of group I /II and increased to 64,7/46,7 %. Painfree walking with shoes and orthoses for 60 or more minutes was possible for 58,8/46,7 % of group I/II and improved to 100/86,7%. The mean plantar pressure for the affected side started initially at 13,5/14,2 N/cm2 increasing to 17,7/17 N/cm2 , results for peak pressure were 25,1/28,4 N/cm2 and increased in both groups to 35,3/34,6 N/cm2 . Pressure Time Integral started at 6,4/8,6 Ns/cm2 and showed 7,8/9 Ns/cm2 in the end. Patients reported averaged 1,5/2,9 points at the Score according to Roles and Maudsley (one = painfree, four = same condition as before treatment)

----

I was wondering one other thing: who sponsored the study? If it is Dornier, I’ll point out that Dr. Ed has reservations about that study which showed over-the-counter inserts to be superior to doctor-presribed orthotics, in part because the study was funded by an OTC insert company, in fact the one whose OTC product was used. This reservation is despite the fact that some very big-name, well-respected orthopedists were part of that study.

since you asked, here's the difference View Thread
Posted by elliott on 8/02/02 at 10:14


Dr. Z just about always responds only to questions about 1) ESWT or 2) what alternatives are left before surgery. In fact, I did a search for the month of July, and every one of the 5 times Dr. Z answered with his email address for info, it was in response to one of these two types of question. By contrast, Ron P pops up everywhere unprompted, in fact 30 times over the month of July (this excludes the posts where he responded to others querying him or his few posts about Birks, and together that's all he's posted about). That is the key difference. The equivalent behavior would be if Ron P, or Dr. Kiper himself, responded when someone asked for an orthotic that works or (if appropriate) alternatives to surgery.

There are other things worth pointing out too. We're human, so the number of posts does matter. 30 in one month is a lot. I'm not sure what you mean by check someone out for spamming. How do you do that? I know Scott R is the POWER, but even he would have trouble ascetaining with certainty whether someone has a financial incentive to post about a product. And it can even be a real person who got cured, but he can still be a spammer. Regardless, whether Ron P is a spammer or not, he sounds like one. All his posts are the same variation of the same 3 or 4 lines ("Have PF? Why not call Dr. KIPER? 800...Silicone! Really helped me! Web site/email too! Call now!"). Sound like a spammer and you turn people off. You'd think they would realize that. Contrast that with me, a poster with good intentions who gets on some people's nerves. I tried an orthotic by a company recommended by Dr. Ed, with the mold taken by a pod in my state. In four months, it brought my foot back from near-crippled to being able to walk. Not sure it will save this foot from surgery in the future (there's a bone issue to be dealt with), but it is doing what an orthotic was designed to do, and doing it well. I posted once or twice raving about it, almost nobody believed me, and then I moved on to other things. That fits a more typical profile, rather than someone coming on to post about nothing but. Again, we're human, so we make such evaluations on people. You can also throw in that Dr. Z gains more credibility by answering other questions. Maybe Dr. Kiper, if he has time, will do the same.

All that said, your point is well taken about anyone promoting their products, including Dr. Z, and some can view what he's doing too as shameless promotion. I feel a little uncomfortable about it, but only a little. And that doesn't mean I believe everything he says either. (I for one will admit that I am still doubtful about claims of 90% success rates with ESWT. Time will tell for sure. I'm leaning more towards 50%, which still has a lot of merit. Newer machines no doubt will improve the figure too.) While there are wide-ranging views on perceived advertising here, the general consensus is that we'd like at least some exposure to new products and treatments, and letting their promoters respond, within reason, is the way to get it. We're trying to get better here but without being taken for a ride.

Hi Carole C., I feel a response by me is warranted here. I want you to know that Ron P is just a very gratefull patient of mine. I never asked him or anyone else to promote me. I have advertised for several years on this web site and never posted or promoted myself other than my ad under the products section. The only reason I'm here now is that Ron P had called me and stated that there was some buzz going on here and asked me to look at it. It was in response to Dr Zuckerman that I did get involved. I actually was not going to get involved in these discussions because I'm busy enough without it. I suppose Ron is one of those patients who has been through the same things as many of you. That is poor and unsuccessful treatment in the past. He has spent a lot of money for his family to find something that worked for them. I appreciate his efforts, but I get many referrals from patients like him without him promoting me here.
Right now one of my patients who is posting here is under my care. We are in the "fitting/adjustment" stages right now and she is having some normal reactions which are not necessarily favorable, but that is the art and science of biomechanical resolve. It would be great if the fit were perfect right away and the results were like putting on eyeglasses. It doesn't work that way. I have to guide the patient through a process which involves orthotic fitting/adjustments and stretching.
You state you are put off by Ron and would not try and let me help you. I understand how you might feel like that, but truthfully, to be locked in a closed mind is worse than keeping it open and failing (in my opinion).
If in time you just cannot find a solution to your biomechanical problems,
look at my site and see that in a world of orthotics, I stand alone. Maybe, just maybe...drkiper.com

She's a true force of nature--nobody gets away with anything when she's around.

We were in Berlin, Leipzig (we sang at St. Thomas Church there, which was Bach's church), Weimar, Eisenach, and Dresden, and after leaving Germany, went to Prague and Vienna. All are lovely places, though it was a lot to try to do in 12 days. It's no wonder I'm exhausted!!

My PF was mild at that time and I continued to run in the hard orthotics but a few months after that all my running ceased for good. Whether the hard orthotics had anything to do with it would be speculation on my part as it may have just been the continue running.

Happy Holidays Everyone! Here's wishing that everyone has a safe and wonderful Holiday Season spent with those that mean the most~~moreso
this year than ever.
A quick follow up----Tomorrow will be FIVE WEEKS post-op Tarsal Tunnel
and Carpal Tunnel Releases....and I am doing great. The hand is healing
well with some slight tendonitis in it...but that is apparently common
after Carpal Tunnel Release.
The Foot....geez guys, I wish the surgery had been done sooner! My symptoms began on June 15, 2001, and my surgery was on November 19,
but the relief has been unreal. Sure, there are some "Nervey" sensations
and occassional pain, but noting to compare to what I was experiencing
pre-operatively. In my case, they did find a large cyst entwined in the
nerve to be the cause of the TTS, so it was easier to fix than some
cases may be---but I am pleased with my recovery at this point.
There is still some swelling and this worsens and the day progresses.
The more I walk on the foot the more it lets me know about it. I did
beging to wear my "New Balance" tennis shoes on that foot again last
Thursday after my follow-up visit with my doctor--- he said that if my
foot feels like it, it is ok to do it. Basically it is a case of letting
my pain be my guide. I have found that I can wear my loosley laced shoe
for about six hours and then I need to take it off and use the velcro boot
again for the rest of the day....but hey---six hours is six hours.
There is still numbness in the foot, but very minimal in comparison to what
was there prior to surgery and the numbness tends to be less in the mornings when the swelling is less and progresses during the day as the
swelling increases with my activity level during the day.....
Anyways...the moral to my story here is........If you have TTS, don't be
afraid of the surgery. So many of the cases I have seen on here are all
gloom and doom----and not successful---I just wanted to share with you all
there there can be success and that for me, it was well worth the risk.
I know that being only FIVE WEEKS POST OP, I can expect even more healing
and improvement as time goes on, and I am looking forward to each step along the way.
Good luck everyone.......and again. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Hi. Just thought I'd put in my 2 cents...for whatever it may be worth. I had ESWT twice for my PF. I did not get any relief and after the 2 treatments I decided to have a 3-part surgery which included a PF release, nerve decompression and osteotomy (where heel bone is cut and moved). It has been 7 months since my surgery and let me tell you...although I walk normal I am in as much pain, if not more, than I was before my surgery. I was told that my recovery would take a year but I have not improved much, if any, in the past two months. I'm gonna give my foot that one year time frame to heal and if it's no better I will consider another ESWT treatment if my doctor or Dr. Z give me reason to believe that it could help me. Do not enter lightly into surgery. It is a long and frustrating road to recovery.

Catherine -- I am also at 1 1/2 years with PF, & it's also been a rough road for me. Like you, I have bilateral PF with pain at multiple locations on both feet.

At the 1 year mark I had my first ESWT. I've since had 2 more. I'm happy to say that the ESWT has been effective at the specific points applied. My heel & arch pain are now nearly gone, and I attribute this to the locations of the first 2 ESWT treatments.

My remaining pain is now concentrated along the outside edge of each sole. Last week Dr. Z gave me my 3rd ESWT treatment & targetted the lateral (outside) band of each foot. He hopes that this will address my remaining problem.

For me, with a severe case of bilateral PF, ESWT seems to have made the difference. It's not a siver bullet, but I believe it's been the key to my recovery.

You may want to look into it.

Hi Lori,
I just found your message and it was of much interest to me. I also live in the Houston area. I think I have an appointment with the same ortho you saw. I have been told by many sources he is one of the best and has preformed many successful surgeries on high level athletes.
I have had my problem for about 5 months. I am your age, high arches, springy feet and was very athletic.
It all started last summer (7/00). I am (was) a marathon runner. My friends and I were out for a run and I twisted my rt ankle pretty badly. About two weeks later I developed (I'm sure they had been in the works for a while) two stress fractures on my left tibia. I tried running in October still not healed. Ran again in January...Stress fractures OK but developed posterior tibial tendenitis. Got that cleared up and started running again in 2/01. About two weeks in to my running I had a pain in my arch (rt foot this time). I thought I may have plantar fasciitis. I went to my sports med dr right away. He said no PF but I had FHL tendenitis (tendon that flexes big toe). He said it should clear up in 1-3 weeks. After two months and many PT visits still not gone. He put me in a walking boot and I am still in it. When I went to my follow up two weeks ago my doctor was amazed I still wasn't healed (I think the tendenitis is as I no longer have those symptoms). He sent me for nerve conduction/emg test. They were negative. Even though they were negative, I know enough about TTS that I think I still have it. I have most of the symptoms. If I am in my walking boot I can get around pretty well but without it forget it...my foot swells too much.
I have been going to the Gym and lifting weights along with swimming. Up until 8 weeks ago I was still using my feet to swim, however that seemed to aggravate my condition. I now use a flotation device between my legs so I can use only my arms (you may want to try this as you were swimming).
I don't know about you, but I am very tired of my inactive lifestyle. I am going to 2 pods and this ortho to get their opinions. After that if they think surgery is required, I am going to go for it. I have every reason to believe I will be successful-I am willing to take a chance. Even if I can walk normally again and not run I would be happy (never thought I would say that as I am a runner to the core) but I need my life back.
I would be interested in knowing what you decide. If you would like to communicate my e-mail is Sperez@GAIC.com .
Also the nerve conduction/EMG test were not that bad. Mild discomfort (even the needle part). I just wanted to know what was wrong with me so I didn't care what they did. The place I went to is one of the best in the city. If you want the info I will give it to you.
I wish you all the best.

Judy,
Thanks for responding. I am truly sorry to hear all you have been through. It sounds as though your case is more advanced than mine, however mine is pretty bad too.
I am a long distance runner. I had two stress fractures in my left leg. My docotor believes that when I started running again I favored my left leg and gave myself fhl tendinitis in my right foot.
My foot only discolors when I have not used it for a while. Most of the time it is normal in color. I was having a hard time flexing my big toe. That however has improved. I have been in a walking boot for 2 months now. I have seen some improvement but still have a long way to go. I also have a mass on the inside of my leg above my ankle. I believe it must be inflamation in the tendon. I am glad to know I am not crazy as using the brake in the car brothers me also.
I too have iced, gone to physical therapy, used crutches and taken NSAIDS.
The reason my doctor now thinks there may be damage to my nerve is becasue I have a burning/tingling sensation in my arch, toes and by my ankle. I am scheduled for a nerve conduction and EMG test.
I have your e-mail and will keep you posted. My e-mail is sperez@GAIC.com . Good luck to you. Let me know if you have any relief with the orthotic.

FHL Tendinitis View Thread
Posted by Shari P on 6/20/01 at hrmin

I have had FHL Tendinitis for aboout 4 months. I have not seen much improvement. I have been seeing a physical therapist, have been put in a walking boot, virtually stopped all activities and I still have pain in my arch area and on the inside of my shin, and a burning sensation around my ankle area.
I went for another follow up appointment on 6/19. I was told that it was unusual for my condition to last so long. Also I forgot to mention that I had an MRI which indicated only inflamation of the tendon.
Because this injury is taking so long to heal, my doctor believes I may have another problem-damage to my posterior tibial nerve. Could this be possible? Have you known of any cases of FHL tendinitis taking this long to heal?

Thanks,
Shari

Pauline, this is the second time in recent memory I have had to complain about you trying to read something very negative into Dr. Z's posts in your extremely persistent desire to do him harm. I'm am very tired of having to deal with your attacks. Now I look over see you've attacked me by claiming Dr. Z gets more protection than other doctors. If you'd stop attacking, then maybe he would not need defending. I believe I have given you and another extreme leeway in the past in your relentless attacks on Dr. Z. You can bet if Dr. Z had control of the board no one would have ever seen those posts. Now I look again and you're already arguing with two people over your post. That's 6 pointless, useless posts as a result of your hatred for Dr. Z. Now I look AGAIN as I'm writing this, and you're saying stuff that doesn't sound very nice to someone who has stuff oozing out of a surgery wound.

Dr. Z said one non-foot pain sentence in his post that didn't make much sense and you chose to complain about that sentence and give it a very negative twist. I'm with wendyn and think that if Dr. Z and Dr. Wander have a disagreement then it's up to them as to how they proceed. They are professionals and I am fairly sure they will never get into discussions that harm the message board. They are here to help patients, and who knows, they might like to meet patients from here and even go so far as to accept money for services rendered at their office(s). In any event they are not here to attack other people or to start a fire. If one finds factual errors with the other's posts and says so, then it makes us all the better and more knowledgeable.

Email me if Dr. Z says something you don't like and I'll consider giving him a foul. You seem vindictive and extremely diligent to find anything wrong with anything he posts. That annoys people. They want to know if yuo're on someone's payroll. They're hear to read about foot pain. They don't want to see this other stuff. It causes damage to heelspurs.com in terms of lost computer programming and content generation time everytime i have to post this STUFF. Let's try to go a week without accusing or attacking anyone.

How did your appointment with Dr. Z go on April 16th? Did you get the zapper? If so, how are you and how was the procedure? I spoke with Dr. Z a few weeks ago-very nice and seemed very knowledgeable and concerned. I am considering the procedure with him, so I'd appreciate additional info on your visit, procedure, and condition. Hope you are better-

I use 1200mg of calcium a day. My bone and mineral specialist said one of his acceptable ways of getting this amount if you want to stay away from lots of pills is drinking 2 8 oz glasses of Orange Juice with Calcium and having 2 yogurt per day along with a multi vitamin. I remember asking him about building kidney stones and forgot what he said so I'll have to ask again. He doesn't seem too concerned and he treats a lot of patients with various bone and mineral problems. He even does infusions on a regular basis for those needing it. I know you should drink enough water during the day to keep your urine near colorless. For my problem, I also take something to help my body retain the calcium I ingest. He does lots of blood and urine tests every 6 months that give him counts on everything even something like the amount of vitamin D in the body.

BUT I HAVE BEEN IMPRESSED ON HOW WELL MY ANKLE IS DOING AFTER ONLY 4 WEEKS. IM STAYING OPTIMISTIC AND BELIEVE THAT IM GOING TO BE ONE OF THE SUCCESSFUL SURGERY STORIES. DR.

I GO BACK TO THE DOCTOR ON 4/16 AND HOPEFULLY HE WILL PERMIT ME TO GO BACK TO MY NORMAL WORK STATUS. HE SAID AT THAT TIME DEPENDING ON HOW I FEEL HE WILL ALLOW ME TO USE SOME WEIGHTS WITH MY STRENGTHENING AND RUN IN A ZIGZAG PATTERN.

i appreciate your support and thank you . I will never write anyone off. This is all about the war on Plantar fasciitis. Don't worry about Dr. Z I can take heat, and I know alot about the bad and mean in people. I also know that pain, frustation in some people can cause alot of meaness. Sometimes people will direct their anger at one thing when it's another thing that is bothering them. Then there is big business which is on this site in some form or other. that really wants to see Dr. Z gone because as long as I am here I can and will make comments about their products.

The only thing that is starting to really get to Dr Z, is the effect that is has had on the good and special people on this web site. I hope that time will heal and we can go on .

Re: I don't have time for this. View Thread

Hi Valerie

You sound desperate, and I don't blame you. You're only four months into a new job, you don't want to give it up, but you're in so much pain that you feel you can't go on, and you know the pain isn't going to go away unless you change your working conditions or the job itself. I know that's putting it starkly, but that is the situation and it's better to face it than not.

First. You cannot hope to 'walk through' the pain. This website is littered with the corpses of people who have tried that and ended up with chronic PF. Maybe lifelong pain. You don't want to be in that category, so that's not an option.

Second. Being on your feet on concrete floors, long term, was almost certainly a contributory cause of your PF, if not the only cause. You answer your own question when you say you've always worked on your feet but don't understand why they've failed you.

Third. You must not feel guilty for missing work. This is an illness, and you are treating it. That is taking responsibility, not playing hooky. But two weeks is not going to cure you.

Fourth. Your co-worker who had the surgery and has 'convinced' your boss that this is the only way is butting in where he has no business butting in. These are YOUR FEET and it is your life, and what you do now is up to you.I'm not clear if it's your boss or your co-worker who 'doesn't want to mess around' and is holding the 12 weeks over you, but whoever it is, you must reject that pressure. If it's your co-worker, perhaps should be wondering whether this person is really being a helpful friend. If it's the boss, perhaps you need to consider whether staying with such a boss is worth the great pay and benefits. There are other bosses, other jobs, out there.

Steve said a few days ago that the job might have to go, and it might. Or there might be a way of holding on to it without wrecking your feet and possibly your life. Only you can decide. But you do have to decide.

As for ESWT, I can only echo the options Dr Z gave you. Go for it. Certainly do it before surgery. Even if it doesn't work, it won't leave you with worse problems, as surgery could. And surgery would still be an option.

I'm aware that the above sounds harsh, and perhaps unsympathetic. I'm not. I want you to sort this out, and I hope putting it all so starkly will help you get some clarity on the situation. But, of course, I'm not in your shoes, and if I'm way off base, just ignore me!

Whatever you decide, I wish you a full recovery and a good life.

All the best

Julie

Hi Taylor,
I have not had surgery just yet. I am waiting for WC to approve the pre-op. What happened to my case is ,my WC insurance company has filed bankruptcy ,so my claim is with a new company that is taking over for them for now. I have been waiting for 6 weeks so far. Now my attorney is going to put my case in front of a judge to approve it. It has been real crazy . My attorney also said that it is the norm for insurance companies to go bankrupt ,she has 5 right now that are going through bankruptcy. If I was you I would get an attorney ASAP.

to Camilla, what I do post ESWT View Thread
Posted by Lori E. on 3/03/01 at 14:57

Camilla,
My post treatment involves the following:
No stairs,I have two sets of steep stairs in my house, I'm now on one level
Using the PFT in the morning before getting up
Self massage as recommended in the PFT book
Heating pad at least once a day, using it when my feet are stiff or sore
Vioxx, I am trying to reduce the amount I use, I am using it about 3x/week
GOOD SHOES, I am still working in this, I have one really decent pair
No heavy lifting
No shopping, I miss Target, Barnes and Noble and the grocery store
Soft thin cushioning inside my shoes, Dr. Z gave me some and it has helped.

Things I can do:
Use my weights sitting down
Yoga, no standing poses, foot stretching poses
Cook using a kitchen stool
Go to school, using a handicap permit, reducing walking blocks on campus

I guess the key is LISTEN TO YOUR FEET. Don't overdo it, don't walk around for blocks or stand for hours. Just rest them as much as you can and get some really really good shoes.

Ron,
I live in MN and won the Dr. Z Orbasone lotto. There was another winner who just got her treatment this month. Maybe living in the Midwest makes you lucky. I didn't find anything in MN or the surrounding area either. Which is why I entered the lotto. The odds are pretty good. Its worth a shot. Enter the lotto, and look into getting the treatment from Dr. Z if you don't win. Dr. Z offers more treatments if you need them. I am making progress after my second treatment.
Dr. Z gives you the option of no pain meds if you choose. I did both treatments without a pain block, no IV sedation. I was fine with it. Dr. Z might not like me saying it, but it felt to me like getting my feet whapped by a big rubber band a bunch of times. From what I heard, it hurts less than getting a tatoo. I guess I have a high pain threshhold. That may have something to do with how bad my PF got. I just walked thru the pain.
Enter the lotto and get some info from Dr. Z. Good luck!

well in 29 hours i flew from little rock to baltimore/washington, drove 125 miles to dr z's, had both feet treated, drove back to baltimore/washington. flew to cleveland,chicago and then back to the rock. this would make you tired even if your feet did not hurt.

my feet were more sore after this treatment. i think i may have had more pulses. no problem driving even after multiple shots in both feet at same time. shots did not hurt nor did orbasone but feet hurt after shots wore off in about 4 hours. talked to one of dr z's patient who had one orbasone treatment in august after years of pf. said he has no more pain. he works on his feet all day. he was in for a problem on other foot. saw dr Z's giant barrel for the lotto drawing for the free orbasone treatment (actually it is not a barrell but an old used FedEx envelope on a coat hangar that contains the slips with names on them). Got to read a lot of the book on ESWT that Dr Z and Scott mentioned in recent post. Dr Z gave me some new jersey tomatoes to take home (not fried green), some orthotics and we talked a lot even though his office seemed to be covered up with patients. also got to sit on the ground for 1.5hrs in chicago waiting for air traffic control delays. switched hotels this trip to an excellent holiday inn . tired so will tell you more later.Result number: 149

Breaking it up a bit is only going to encourage newcomers...minus the last day because of all the arguing that's been going on.

Keep in mind...this is Scott's site...he is the one who maintain's the site..and I for one can only thank him...it has helped me in many,many ways.

There have been some post from newcomers not liking to have to surf through all of our "social chats". It's really not a big deal...just click on the "view last messages".

As far as Dr.Z goes....lord !! I can't believe you would even "dog" this man. This man who has come to many and helped...including you I might add!!

Where were you in the post he made in response to the "fees" idea? If
I remember right.....he was "not crazy" about the idea. That obviously is a post that you didn't get the chance to read.

You really need to calm down about this whole issue....and quit making so many accusations towards others. It's not a nice thing to do.

yes my shot was from the side. why would the doctor give it straight from the bottom. he would have to accurately judge the thickness of the fascia. i guess if the problem was directly in the middle of the foot it might be hard to reach from the side. dr z give us some info on this. the side shot was not painful and would seem easier to hit your spot than from bottom.Result number: 152

Mohez, Martha forwarded your e-mails to me and I really did not like that radiologist. My right foot was up to 6mm while my left is at 5mm. My right foot is 1000x's worse then the left. I was really mad when the radiologist told me 'oh I've seen a lot worse then yours'. People who don't suffer from this cannot understand. My frustration level has been so high that I don't know what kept me from grabbing this guy by the neck. ( I am a rugby player who hasn't been able to play so there is no where for me to vent frustration-he was lucky!)

Anyways, tomorrow is week 4. I moved over the weekend and Monday night the pain was so bad that I had to soak my feet. I was almost in tears. It was the worse I had ever felt. Tuesday my whole leg ached. I still have swelling and bruising. Dr Galea said it would be this bad for 4 weeks. Based on how it feels right now is that I will never be able to run again. So Dr. G said that by week 6 I should be fine. SO by the time Mohez gets his treatment, I should be 'cured'.

I'll keep you posted.Result number: 154

Try this and see if it works. When you wake up in the morning roll onto the floor or stay in bed. Dont take that first step. This is what will cause the damage. Rather spend ten min working with you calf muscle in bed. Massage it with your fingers,working from the achilles tendon mid way up your leg. A small inexpensive mechinical kneeding(neck and back) machince works the best. Now, stand up and remember what it was like to wake up pain free. Notice any pain in your foot? This group of rigid muscels is the underlying cause. Why? I have found many reasons. This is only the beginning of how to prevent futher damage. Its not the cure. The cure lies in three areas. 1) bio-mechinacs 2)weight 3)Body toxins.(Drink at least 5/ 8 oz glasses of water per day to get the crap out of your system). Contuine to ice your heels and AT band.
