we're probably just going to wait for the new board now.

One possible wrinkle may be the fact that I'm moving to a more self-managed system running in Amazon AWS. While this gives more flexibility (and is more interesting to me professionally), it won't have some of the nice automatic anti-spam/firewalling features that we got from hosting with ServINT in the past. There was a brief time several years back when TZT was getting crushed by Chinese search engine crawlers (and I think even Microsoft Bing crawlers too), and it was a simple matter to firewall these off. I've not really explored how to do that on AWS.
I certainly know how to do manual IP blocks on AWS, but ServINT conveniently had software that could automatically block crawlers or port-scanners or any other suspicious traffic. If anyone here has experience in freeware (or something cheap) that can do similar in AWS, lemme know.
heh i almost forgot about the era of pc keyboard templates
yeah if it's just the femoral head that's involved it's essentially fixing the "ball" part of the ball and socket joint.
sometimes it can be treated conservatively but his fracture is likely to be complex and unlikely to improve with conservative measures.
since kaiser is not a fee-for-service pay model and surgeons don't get extra money for procedures, it's a good bet that your dad legitimately needs the surgery.
Good to know. And honestly I generally think very well of Kaiser services (outside of mental health), and my dad in particular who is a walking case of complications in particular has had excellent doctors overall. He had a personal physician literally begging him on his knees to stop smoking. I do believe he's in good hands, even before knowing Big Vae's pals are on the case.
thread is creepy
and your street cred
I will wait for Piek to chime in to correct the likely bad advice I'm going to give you.
You strained your tendons. Rest and ice to reduce irritation, Ibuprophen or aleve for swelling. - Stop furiously masturbating.
After two weeks start moving the shit at physical therapy. Still ice and rest after exercises. - no beating off.
After another week start building strength and endurance back up after the lack of fapping.
Week five should be minimal masturbation as pain tolerates.
Week six, increased beating off until you can jerk away.
Get a steroid injection and regret not going the PT route.
Sounds good to me.
No but really it is a tendon issue. Lets go back real quick to check something...is this the medial or lateral elbow. If you hand is at your side with your palm forward is your pain on the pinky side or thumb side.
Flexor tendons attach to the medial elbow (these tendons include both wrist and finger flexors), extensor tendons to the lateral eblow.
Based on where your pain is we can focus on what to do for recovery. But we are hit with an issue right off the bat....you are a month into this injury and its not better. What have you been doing for your elbow so far? Typically inflammation injuries that stick around we call chronic and require a break of the inflammatory phase of healing. The phase that only is supposed to last 48 hours is now extended significantly. So breaking the inflammatory cycle is key here. A prescribed anti inflammatory will do the trick **DO NOT GET AN INJECTION** (tendons + NSAID injections = increased risk of rupture...that would be surgery friend... most doctors won't do it anyways). With that ice, heat and gentle stretching are key to recovery.
Start with this for the next few days:
1) Heat up the elbow to warm up the tissue
2) Look up forearm stretches and do 3 sets of 30 seconds for both flexion and extension (DO IT STRAIGHT ARMED NOT BENT ELBOW!)
3) Get a gentle grip strengthener and do some pain free grip exercises 3 x 15 if you can tolerate it.
4) Look up "Eccentric wrist exercises with light weight" and try them. () 3 x 15 if you can tolerate that high repetition, you arm will be tired. You can do both flexion and extension but if its just lateral extensors tendons then just do the exercise in the link above with light weight to start (he's using 8, you start at like 2lbs...a can of beans works fine)
5) Make an ice cup outta a paper cup and do 15 minutes of ice cupping on the tendon.
Do this for like 2 weeks about 3 or 4 times a week along with an anti-inflammatory drugs. If you can get access to an ultrasound machine for therapy that would speed this up too but i doubt you can.
C'mon, dude... we all know it wasn't heavy.
Could be a lat or trap pull. When I surf out of shape, I can get similar injuries as I get back in shape, and they can radiate up to the neck for sure.
Jupiter Ascending had some segments with nice cinematography though. Thinking about the space ship / wedding scene for one. I don't regret watching.
I will say the sky roller blades were super gay. whoever wrote that shit needs to go back to cool school.
I got out on a 10' break in Huntington Beach with my 9' board. It was a HEAVY day. Took me 30 mins. After a 30 minute recovery time, I dropped in on my first wave, pulled out early to play it safe. My second wave, I dropped in deep, and rode it a bit farther than I should have. It closed out on me and broke my leash. I was about 200 yards out with nothing by my wetsuit. It took me 45 minutes to swim in. My board was like 500 yards down the beach, and I didn't even care. I literally crawled out of the surf on my hands and knees. It's one of the few times I thought I was going to drown. Fortunately, some guy saw it and brought my board to me. I laid there for what seemed like forever.
Anyways, that was a tangent. I was mostly just replying to say that I have a 9'1 Mactavish (which is what I had that day). It has the option to put in 3 fins, and, if you bring the tail fin in a bit, you can absolutely shred with that thing. I've hit the lip so hard, and there's 9' of board straight up in the sky for a half a second. It's fun to make short boarders notice. I'd be lucky to pop up these days, though.
I ended up with 3 boards: A couple of 9 footers and a fun shape I got for my wife that is now mostly decoration.
You have 8 boards? You went all in, lol. Do you surf multiple styles or do you stick to one? I could only ever get the hang of longboarding. Shortboarding was way to squirrely for me.
