Hi Straydog, its been awhile, but I wanted to thank you for the info to get into the FDA, I have gotten several warnings on medical devices (that was what I asked for).  I will be honest, if I got any more information on all of the things the FDA tests, advises on, says yes or no, I dont know if I would ever eat or drink again.  When I say drink I dont mean alcohol, gave that up over 20 years ago.
Anyway before I go way off subject, I just wanted to say thanks, its been very helpful to me.  I am still trying to figure out what to do with the useless one in my back.  I may wait for my daughter to get married in June, then have this thing removed, and maybe go for the pump, from what I am hearing the results are much better.
Again, thank you, hope you are well, (as well as we can be),
Take care

Hey Kathy you are very welcome about getting you the info on their site. I had to laugh when I read your post. I had to do a lot of fine tuning on their web site, I was being bombarded with every alert coming down the pike I think, lol.

You know I just think its pure criminal that you got stuck with a device that is just useless to you. I will admit I am not a fan by a long shot of the units but its just from reading here at the forum about the failures such as yours. That would sour anyone in my feeble mind, lol.

I am fighting a cold, something I have not had in years. I was out in the night air Halloween night handing out candy at my sons, so I know what did it. He lives in a young neighborhood with oodles of little ones and its just so much fun watching them trudge up the drive with their loot in tow. My favorite this year was a little brother & sister that looked every bit of 2 and 3 yrs old. The little boy had on a Dallas Cowboy football outfit, complete with a helmet, sister was dressed as a Cowboy cheerleader and they were just priceless. They posed for their picture to be taken, so cute.

The last two days my swelling has really been bad in my feet & legs, I am really tired of battling this problem, but will get over it like everything else. I just have to watch sitting here at the computer with my feet hanging down, not sit for long periods.

I hope you are doing good and feeling good. I know you have had some cold weather in your part of the country. We had our first light freeze last week, thats scary we don't get those until Jan/Feb. Makes me wonder what kind of a winter we are in for. Take care.
