    My Howtek HiResolve8000 got tough with me

    Actually, m or ankle reconstruction so I can hike and walk without falling down every other step. Means I can't scan/develop film or take pictures for 6 weeks. No weight allowed at all. If all goes right 2-3 months reconstruct right one. Already had shoulders fixed. Gym time then image time.

    Right now pain meds are my friends . Forgive the typos

    I do have several scans I hope to work on at some point.

    Pain killers are our friends. However, I can't stand the way they make you feel. No question they absolutely work, but the lethargy and turning your #2 into concrete sucks. Therefore, I am done with them after 5 days! After that, I will only take one if pain is at 10 or worse.

    I am so glad I don't have an addictive personally.

    Now I have a green cast. Next week it will be red.

    What kind of bike chewed you up?

    +1 on wishes for a speedy recovery. I had a new knee a few years back and for some reason (ie a lot of metal in the back where they wanted to put the nerve block) I didn't get the block - it was not nice. I have the greatest sympathy for anyone having orthopedic "alterations"

    Be careful and do what they tell you - things can ALWAYS get worse. By the way, my doc recommended marijuana for back pain but I found that a nice cup of hot milk and Irish Whiskey was a better analgesic. And re the "concrete" the rehab center I was in for a couple of weeks after the back repair had a brew of hot milk and prune juice that might be worth a try. Beyond that you might try Citrate of Magnesia. Or just ask them to suddenly flip the hospital bill open before your eyes - that should scare the .... well you get the idea.

    Be glad they're friendly to you. Most opioid painkillers are totally useless for me, as I lack the enzyme to activate them.

    Good luck and a speedy recovery.

    1964 Norton Electra, which I rode often no hands, throttle set, many rural miles even over railroad tracks, turning gentle curves. Very stable...

    A sunny morning 1 mile one handed, a speed wobble that tossed me off. I rolled the fall onto my back, clearing my helmetless head. While still sliding in a t shirt, I noticed a fast approaching car. I put my bare hands down to slow me, that really hurt. Quicking jumping up, ran off the road, discovering my broken foot, my broken arm, lot of road rash. 5 fractures.

    Jim was right behind me, as he stopped I said go shut the bike off, Then into an ambulance, quickly in and out of ER with 2 big casts and home before shock wore off. Jim went back to ER and got pain pills. 1976. The bike had a slightly bent front fender, no other dents or scratches. The old Brit bikes were tough.

    2 years later I rode my BMW R75/5 into a tree. Knocked out, woke up in the arms of an angel that nobody saw, except me. That bike was totaled. I was OK. 55 scalp stitches.

    I still ride, maybe this was my last year. I will keep a Sportster regardless, it's far better than any of my 6 Nortons.

    Thanks all. Perhaps you shouldn't ride bikes anymore.

    Absinthe numbs you pretty good!
