I'm with [MENTION=107711]datlas[/MENTION] as always. Your doc might know something I don'tóI'm wrong all the time, but treatment of a healing traumatic injury is an idiosyncratic use of that drug for sure. The available evidence suggests that the inflammatory component of the soft tissue and bone healing processes is probably beneficial and NSAIDs are generally considered a risk for healing.

Thanks. I guess I wasn't perfectly clear. The component we're looking at is the cut finger, that waited too long to have the tendon repaired. The recontructive surgeon told me I could make it flexible, and then keep it flexible by manipulating it with the other hand. Would either, or both forms of diclofenoc be indicated in that process? Would warm water be indicated? Warm Vaseline? Or simply continue what I've been doing--very, very, VERY slowly increasing the flexibility by manually moving it. I went in looking for an appointment with, or reference to a therapist, but that wasn't possible at this time.

I punctured but didnít know it. It was a hot day. Realized what happened a few days later. Havenít checked recently because I donít want to know, but there was some slight staining of my Cerakote finish. Maybe itís unique to my finish.

If the young mouse couldn't learn it, odds aren't great for the old one to do so,

I can't imagine diclofenac or heat being very helpful in that process. Manipulation is probably key. I rehabbed a torn finger tendon with loss of mobility that way on the advice of a hand surgeon. What happened to the tendon that they couldn't reattach it?

The surgeon who re-attached the finger was apparently unaware of the length of the window for getting it done later. The reconstructive surgeon was beside himself in disbelief, of that fact and some others. Six weeks at the very outside, and by the time I saw him it had been two months. He cited my age, the Covid, the exact location of the cut, and a few other things.I didn't fight him. Life is for learning.

Just out of morbid curiosity, what's it take to get on the leaderboard these days? I'm sure I'm not anywhere near, but I'm curious where my newly-regular outdoor riding would place me.

Or maybe just the rear. I'm also leaning heavily in favor of glue, over tape. For the same reason I'm leaning away from sealer.
I'm excited at the prospect of finally making the leap.

I haven't bought or installed a tubular since the early 90s. Maybe someone else can help you.

A friend of mine had this land on him while working outside. Never contemplated their existence.

Exactly the definitive advice I was looking for. What are your thoughts on the side effects?

If you have normal kidney function and donít have a sensitive stomach, low risk of side effects. Honestly you will probably get the same results with or without the medicine.

I think you need around 150ish miles per week to podium.

I only had 104 miles last week and I was number 4 or 5

Saw that a few weeks ago. Made me wonder if I saw one a few years ago while camping in NJ. I was reading by my campfire at night when a rather large, winged bug came crashing down into the sand. Scared the hell out of me. I stomped it. It definitely had an orange head. Never saw anything like it before.

Years ago I was in Northern California and a bald-face hornet flew up the back of my shorts and stung me on the ass. It was by far the most painful insect bite I ever had. My friend told me they were considered the most painful bite in North America. I wouldn't dispute that. It hurt so bad it was ridiculous.
