Wow. What a waste of money for the insurance company. Without some MAJOR life changes (quit smoking/food choice changes), he/you won't live much longer at all. Worse, he/you could have a stroke and live in a wheelchair for many more years, under the care of someone else who won't give him/you smokes or bad food. Hmmmm...which is worse, huh?

Hi, My husband had a triple heart bypass almost 2 yrs ago when he was 40 and shortly after carotid artery surgery. I was wondering what his life expectancy was? Prior he has had a level 4 skin cancer also... When he had his heart attack the doctor said usually 2% of the people do not make it off the table but his risk was like 10%. They showed me his arteries and they were very small...they said they look like a 80 yr olds. He is about 5 foot 10 and 163 pounds.

Please direct this question to an ortopedic surgeon and/or an alternative medicine specialist. i m a 57 y.o. male, outta shape and overweight with two dislocated shoulders - one worse than the other (supposedly 3rd degree seperation/subluxation) but both give me chronic pain. the worst one has the classic hump where the bone has popped up out of the joint it s the worst but, the other one gives me quite a bit of pain too. all i have for pain is ibuproffen(handfulls) acetaminofen, and alcohol. My Dr. had breifly prescribed Gabbapentin which like Tylenol wasn t much help, essentially negligible. Some years back i had convinced a VA surgeon to do the standard operation but, upon researching it, i learned that only 50% of the time was it effective and of those, 50% developed arthritis in the shoulder. I need some real options/alternatives Doc. Been living with chronic pain for 15 years - not to mention the lack of funtionality. Any suggestions?
