    Wish I could take NSAIDS. They ruined my G.I. tract long ago, and I can't take them now.

    The sidemount diving class scheduled for this coming weekend has been postponed. I emailed instructor and told him about my issues yesterday. Will schedule it for later in the season. Had to cancel my 5/13 Lake Michigan boat dives. Hope I can keep the ones for Memorial Day on Lake Huron. I was back in the pool today. 500 yards when I used to do a mile. Also did my PT exercises in the pool. Felt good. Sat in the hot tub for a bit after.

    I am so pissed I could spit.

    So sorry, Tradd. That's a bad deal.

    It worked well for 2 of my dogs but my big dog actually got worse on it and we stopped it and he improved. So sorry you are going through this.

    Be careful what you wish for. DH took NSAIDS and it caused kidney failure! Ruined your GI tract.... wow.

    I was taking ibuprofen every day. I knew that couldn't be good and even asked my GP about it. He shrugged it off and said to just go by package instructions. I ended up with a bleeding ulcer................
