Interesting that you don’t mention what I find to be the #1 cause of plantar fascitis. It is trigger points in the soleus muscle which cannot be stretched in the same manner that is used to stretch the other calf muscle (the gastrocnemius). You can work the foot and heeel all day long and not resolve the problem until you get rid of the triggr points in the soleus and learn how to stretch it properly.
I am a massage therapist and you don’t even mention seeing this group of professionals who can be very helpful in working with someone. Massage the calf; do NOT massage the foot. Once you have gotten rid of the trigger points and gotten the calf muscles in good shape you can then massage the foot…..but chances are you wont’ need to. It will have become a non-issue.
Patients rarely require drains after adrenal surgery; however, if the surgeon thinks it is necessary, an abdominal drain will be placed. Drains are more often required after open adrenalectomy than after laparoscopic adrenalectomy. Drains are relatively easy to take care of, and the output is recorded on a daily basis. Once the output decreases to a certain level, the drain will be removed. Removal of the drain is not particularly painful. It is more of a strange sensation. In general, the drain will be removed several days after surgery.
As far back as 1988, after an extensive review of the research, the DEA’s own chief administrative judge Francis L. Young concluded: “Marijuana, in its natural form, is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known.” The National Academy of Sciences Institute of Medicine found similarly. The DEA ignored the research. In 2010, at least 15 double-blind crossover studies, the Gold Standard of research, are among the 20,000 studies showing the safety and efficacy of medical cannabis and NO evidence it causes cancer—more supportive research for marijuana than any drug ever approved by the FDA! In 2009, forced by the overwhelming weight of research evidence, the American Medical Association overcame its previous hostility to support “that marijuana’s status as a federal Schedule I controlled substance be reviewed with the goal of facilitating the conduct of clinical research and development of cannabinoid-based medicines.” The supportive 2010 University of California Center for Medicinal Cannabis Research Report to the Legislature also demonstrates numerous benefits and safety of marijuana.
