Over 50`s , How Knackered Are You ?

On a much lighter note

I had a new aortic valve 7 months ago... Prior to my op my lovely nurse, Rebecca shaved what was a magnificent growth of silver and white hair from my chest and nuts
magnificent it was , had I been a gorilla, I would have been a silver front, not a silverback
Anyhoo, I only noticed this evening, that my magnificent coating of chest and baw hair has come back, and it is brown, almost all traces of grey ...gone!
Is this natural...or has SWMBO been messing with my head and dyeing them while I have been asleep
Was the aortic valve from a chimpanzee if so then there's your answer

I never realised that the Aortic valve was near the bollocks. Was Rebecca new to the job?

If the return of brownness has been accompanied by an unpleasant smell, you've cacked yourself & spread it all over.

Bovine material (leather?)strangely as well as no longer being silver/grey they are no longer wiry , just wondered if this was normal

I will ask the cardiologist I work for!

Just a thought, what (if any) anti-rejection meds are you on?


Edit: once he stopped laughing, he said it was the first time he'd ever heard of that side effect!

nowt wrong with fighting Bullies mate, Keep at it, put the pressure on em.
 
About two years ago my left knee was exrayed and scanned and it confirmed my worse fears arthritis. Any how another major flare up of pain, tried everything all these different ointments with no positive results, pain going on now for over two months. So I hobbled into the doctors told him, he looked at said knee, pressed said knee, read report and said do you fancy an injection? "Christ I thoght you had to go to Switzerland for that", Said I, "good grief it's not that bad" said the doc, "no, an injection into the knee, Cortisone".

Hells bells it hurt, almost brought tears to my eyes and the bruise I've got, any one would think I've been kicked by a bloody horse, OK a pony, a small pony but it hurts even more now than it did 48 hours ago before I had the friggen injection.
Any ideas as to how long this cortisone should take to kick in? The Mrs is fed up of me moaning but I've also got a really bad cold and I might not see out the weekend.
Hi Mate,

I know I'm late to the party, getting Cortisone stabs to knees every 3 months for just over a year, yup it bloody does sting.

I'm also fortunate to be receiving stabs to both shoulders, they make you jump off the couch !

The Quack told me they should last 3 months, best I've had is 6 to 8 weeks.

Quack told me pains I was getting in neck, shoulders and hips were down to inheriting said condition from my parents, BOLLOCKS, Bro 1 is a cop, Bro 2 sails a 40-foot boat in races and Sis 1 is a rock climber, Mother 80 yrs old is fitter than me and refuses to take even an aspirin.

In a couple of months time, I'm going to Outpatients to have a Cortisone stab in my neck, the joys - - thanks Infantry.

I know I shouldn't laugh but it read funny.
The funny thing with my knee, months later I saw a specialist who after poking around and looking at new X-rays told me that injections wouldn't work. Laugh, I almost fell from the couch. So keep taking the diclafenic and hopefully you'll be able to have a replacement in your early seventies.
Thanks doc, thanks a lot. I didn't have the heart to tell my GP.
 
Fellow sufferer,
Ive been taken off diclafenic and replaced by naproxen. The dicfen are apparently now not good, they balls up something else. Cant quite remember what ! ! Stand by for more pain.

Apparently it’s your heart, but naproxen bungs me up and makes me feel sick so sod it I’ll roll the dice and take me chances.
 
I had the Monthly meeting with the Dr last night. What I thought might be a bit of osteoarthritis, or possibly a reaction to Citalopram, turns out to be gout!

Another ailment to add to the list :)

Genuine question for the over 50s...how's the sex life after you hit 50 or 60? I am sure I will find out for myself in about 15yrs but wanted to know. When I was a bit younger and in my 20s, just the thought of people after 50 having sex just made me go eewwww!
Ask your mum.
 
The tinnitus is driving me crackers, and the doc says I can thank the army for the deteriorating hearing. And then there are the Johny Giles. But life is still what you make of it. And after seeing some of Dingerrs posts, I’m pretty grateful for how things are.
 
Apart from one gefuckered lung, I am in pretty reasonable nick at 56. The lung even isn't that bad and is well enough controlled by meds that I do sprint triathlons and a fair amount of cycling without too much trouble, and the high level of activity keeps me otherwise fit.
Here's the kicker though. A mate of mine of about the same age, was far, far fitter than me and did big bike stuff - etape de tour, US continental divide, that sort of bollocks - and dropped dead of heart failure on a cycling holiday in Spain a couple of weeks ago.

I`m over 50 and started listing all the health issues I have , quite a depressing list and I`m not over weight and look after myself , fact hunts may be worse off than me or better ? On the plus side I can still get the attention of the ladies as young as 25 and can physically out work builders in their 20`s .

Here goes..

  • Hearing in one ear ...ear defenders weren't allowed on the range in my day.
  • Eyes - short sighted so glasses needed
  • Lower back - painful most of the time so I often walk like a spacker.
  • Bad guts , regularly get the shits and serious stomach cramps - cant drink beer any more without suffering badly , rum or vodka these days.
  • High blood pressure unless I use meds.
  • Mouldy toe nails
  • 5-6 teeth missing
  • Knees ache like fcuk by the afternoon.
  • Bald patch
  • All the above doesn't help with depression.

Can you beat that list or is it time for the mess revolver?

Totally shagged out, aches, pains - from the multigym.
Just finished bloody constructing it (most of it).
Not joking, secondhand, no instructions, got the manufacturers name but not the model, I can't find instructions for anything like it searching on line.
It's a giant Meccano with wires and pulleys everywhere.
Totally fecking shegged.
