    Bonzo Dog's third valve replacement is Friday, Aug. 21

    Many thanks for your best wishes. :) In the run up to Obama's election I tried to start an intelligent discussion about USA health care policies as outlined by Presidential candidates. How naive to think a medical survivors forum would be a good place to do that. :rolleyes: The level of...

    Anyone have endocarditis during surgery

    Yes I did, aortic not mitral though. Also not replacing a native valve. My mechanical was a breeding ground for bacteria, it was taken out to be replaced by a homograft and aortic root.

    Ross is Home!

    Thanks for keeping us informed Mary. :) Glad you're OK Ross. :) TBH what is with all the concern? Ross is a fighter and a survivor we knew his alive and well toothless form would be back soon ;) In the meantime, as the Sheriff is out of town how about some bad behaviour. Saloon brawl anyone?

    another endocarditis question

    Lynn, On their own, finger splints shouldn't be a worry. To echo Dina, are you symptomatic in any other areas? Fever, rigours, sudden fatigue, weight loss, night sweats?????? If you want to really freak yourself out, shine a torch pressed under your finger through to the nail and you'll probably...

    Current state of the economy

    Hmmmmm ...... First point; a thread on economic woes slips into politician bashing. For sure the lying little toads are far from blameless, but they are not the only players. What about the business leaders, captains of industry and executive board members who took decisions and sculpted...

    Current state of the economy

    God no Tom we all look to ourselves first, it's natural. :) I just think it's a global problem, we are all in the smelly stuff together and thinking globally is the only way out of it. This week's Economist is worth a read. The cover says it all. It also...
