Can you take anything for the pain, like aspirin?  

 

I am ONLY allowed 2 Tylenol per day.  So I don't take anything, as 2 Tylenols a day is a joke.

Tylenol is only meant to be a temporary remedy  . I  have never used the stuff myself .

Can you take anything for the pain, like aspirin? I use Bayer Back & Body a lot and works good for me. Some folks cannot take aspirin though. Active ingredients are Aspirin, 500mg, and Caffeine, 32.5mg.

 

Aspirin, Aleve, etc tend to thin the blood so when you are on blood thinners they don't want you to take anything that may effect how thin the blood is.  They are trying to keep it a certain level.

I may as well eat a handful of Smarties as take Tylenol--- Aspirin works for me, if I take anything at all. Sciatica is not nice, and I'll take Aspirin or Aleve for it, but mostly just put up with it. Olde and stubborn you know, lol.

Decided to put the water pump back on the Massey.  The new water pump seal just doesn't measure to where it will fit.  It is a good 1/4" shorter than the one that was in it, so the impeller will hit the pump body before contacting the seal.  I measured the impellers, and the old & new one are identical, so it's not that.  I looked up the numbers on the new seal, and it does match to what is called for, but it just doesn't measure up.  

  The old seal wasn't leaking, so I re-used it, mounted the pump.  Filled with antifreeze mix.....and she leaks.  I am at a loss at the moment.

Sometimes putting stuff together when  ALL of the components are at  EXACT same temperature is the key .

 

 

 

My brother is the Civil Engineer  with the PE certification  . 

 

 

Other than that I can't help .

Can you get the seal from a bearing house? Just give them the measurements and they should be able to match it up. Maybe someone is telling you that you were supposed to be off today?? Just saying!!

Just got back from my Pulmonary Dr and all seems good.  I will definitely be on blood thinners for life, and that makes me feel better in that I won't feel like a ticking time bomb had they planned on taking me off it.  Go back for breathing tests on the 26th.  On the 18th I go in to discuss the removal of the blood filter trap that's in my vena cava.

Sounds like you have a full schedule for the next few weeks.  Good to know things are working out for you.

I don't know how well things are working out.  Ate Chinese after Dr visit, and my fortune cookie had NO fortune inside!   :boo_hoo:

My son's septic has been acting up, and we know the lateral lines are mucked up bad.  So looks like I'll be digging them up for repairs.  Not that I don't love having more to do!   :wallbanging:   Gotta be done soon too, as their having bad drain issues now.

Leg looked good to him.  Swelling is less than most have.  It will always swell some he said.  Just hike it up high whenever I can when resting.
