Print a Diary Page
For my meetings with the diabetic nutrionist I would like to bring the last weeks daily food diary pages so she can evaluate what I have been eating. Is there an easy way to print out the pages? Right now I just do a Ctrl P but there is a lot of stuff on the printed page I don't need and the light blue type is hard to read on a printed page. I also have done a couple of screen prints and pasted them together in PhotoShop and cleaned them up that way but it is a little time consuming. Has anyone found a better way to accomplish thisQuestion
Thanks - John

Degenerated disc L-5
When I was in my later 20's I was diagnosed with a herniated disk between L5 and S1. After 3 months on my back I was back at work. Every so often after that I would move wrong or tweak it somehow and it would take a couple of weeks of hobbling around before it would settle down. I hurt it one time after about 8 years and saw a specialist that said I should get it taken care of and wanted to cut. At the time I was an CT (Cat Scan)engineer with Siemens Medical at a couple of Hospitals in Fargo, ND. Happened to mention to one of the Radiologists that I was going to have surgery to fix the back, he said before I went that radical I should go see one of his friends that he had graduated from med school with who was now a Chiropractor. I was not real keen on the idea but the back was hurting and I was leaving town to drive across ND to another hospital to service some equipment. I stopped by his office on the way out of town and talked to him. I could barely get out of my car. After twenty minutes with him I was back in the car and heading across ND. He was not the typical bone cruncher that I was used to, he used a spring loaded device, he called it a thumper and some electrical stimulation and I darn near could touch my toes when I got off of the table. I was one happy camper. Canceled the surgery and have been good since with out surgery. Have tweaked it a number of times since that time but have found another Dr that uses the same procedure that he did and after a couple of sessions and about ten days of being careful I am back at it. It has been over 20 years now and still have not had surgery. When I work out I have to be careful to not go at it to aggressively and if I walk the treadmill for over an hour I can feel it in my left leg.
Well - bottom line is there are other alternatives to the surgery, with that being said everyone is different so don't go by what I say as gosple, it just worked out for me. The one thing that you have to be concerned with is that the nerve bundle that is effected by L5 and S1 controls some to the nerves for your lower organs, urination, bowels, and god forbid, the reproduction area. At least this is what the Doc told me. So far I have not had any problems in those areas but be aware.
I did eliminate running and have just been doing the treadmill, mostly walking but now than I'm 64 the joints don't take to kindly to pounding on the pavement.
Well JR - that was a long answer to a short question - I can feel your pain, good luck with it and I hope everything works out well for ya
