Addiction LXXVIII

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I'm with @datlas as always. Your doc might know something I don't—I'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 didn’t know it. It was a hot day. Realized what happened a few days later. Haven’t checked recently because I don’t want to know, but there was some slight staining of my Cerakote finish. Maybe it’s unique to my finish.

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.

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.

If you have normal kidney function and don’t 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 had a family with a nest in my front yard when I lived in bull head. Those things are awesome. Somehow we still had sun spiders though.

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.
