... use about a half of a fresh pineapple combined with two cups of spinach when I don't have a broken foot.

... the future. I know as well as anyone that we all heal differently and are all having different procedures but it doesn't take a medical degree to know how long bones take to heal and any one with common sense will take it easy and not rush the healing process. ... (13 replies)

... I had a friend who recently sustained complex, compound fractures in his wrist from a simple fall. His healing time took about 10 weeks. But he is in his 60's and also not exactly following protocol as he started "loading weight" by using his wrist, e.g. ... (6 replies)
... used once, and a knee crutch thing, which I've also never seen her use. She also ramped up the smoking, much to my dismay as I read that smoking increases bone healing time. I really wanted her to be healthy for the skiing season! ... (6 replies)

... They've been bothering me for about a year, so I finally met with my foot surgeon last month and he agreed it was time to take them out. He normally leaves them in, but if they are bothersome for any reason, he will remove them. ... (9 replies)
