Talk Whatever

Don’t need to see the movie after watching this trailer for the simple fact that it looks bad and that asswipe (Connor McGregor) is in it.

Looks like the remake barrel has been completely scraped!

:rofl:

We have to write a Finnish Wikipedia article for one of the courses and I’ll definitely make mine about Django the Bastard :rofl: Very random but it’s what I wanna do

It was a lot funnier than I expected, and having recently travelled to the Keys I found it mildly interesting, but it is a movie to be skipped entirely unless one is for whatever reason a “fan” or whatever of this UFC fella walking like castrated duck in the movie

To change the topic: it’s a bummer how weird a home video market Italy has. Very low BluRay penetration it seems, and a lot of the movies one might assume would get prime treatment there are being mostly forgotten. BUT there are still tons of things coming out there every now and again - but more than often not on BluRay. Here’s just two examples

‘Clint Eastwood is back, and burning at both ends…’

I reckon he must have tried the Chicken Madras…

Hey Amigos and Amigas, I was debating for a while whether or not to talk about what I’m about to, but I realized some others may have had a similar or relevant experience to mine, so here it goes.

This might get a little on the rant side of things, just in case.

For the past few years I would get these very serious pains in my stomach, but I’d only flair up once in a moon, so I didn’t think much on it, figuring I inherited my paternal grandmother’s sensitive stomach. Then about a year ago, the pain started going into my chest and back, eventually lasting for nearly 10 to 12 hours. Finally my Mom and Dad got me to a Gastro specialist and after an ultrasound it was discovered I had gallstones.

Now at first we were all hoping for surgery so I wouldn’t have to worry about foods setting off these pains, but because the stones weren’t causing blockage to my liver or other organs around the gallbladder, the doctor wanted to hold off on that. Now normally I wouldn’t complain, but those pains are excruciating, almost feeling like my chest is being squeezed by a vice. I would honestly rather have the surgery and not have to gamble on what foods are safe to eat, as its dang close to Russian Roulette, and needless to say I’m between feeling frustrated and pissed. I know surgery should be the absolute last option to go with, but after what I’ve experienced it would almost be a blessing.

Am I being a little too critical of my situation guys? What do you all think? And Thanks for listening.

Can’t speak on it personally but my grandma had her gallbladder operated on a few years ago, for I think similar issue to what you are talking about. It went completely fine for her, only real drawback was a few days rest post surgery. I believe they mostly do it using keyhole surgery which means they hardly have to even cut into you to do it.

Its incredible what surgeons can do these days, and I don’t think gallbladder surgery is anything complicated in the scope of modern medicine so I wouldn’t overthink it too much amigo. I bet you’ll be kicking yourself for not getting it sooner if anything :+1:

I think if it were me, I would go to another doctor and get a second opinion. They may end up telling you the same thing but, if I were in that much pain, I don’t think I would want to trust one person’s opinion.

My wife suffered with these and had the surgery. Keyhole and didn’t even have to stay in overnight. I dropped her off in the morning and picked her up the same night. A couple days rest at home in bed and she was as good as gold. No more pain and only tiny scars, If you don’t know where to look you won’t see them.

Before the surgery she suffered the same as you. Lying on the floor gasping in pain which nothing could fix. It seemed that fatty foods set her off so avoid anything like that including anything creamy or such. Your gastro specialist will know all of this anyway. The difference is he’s not on the sharp end of the pain. If you can get the surgery I’d go for it sooner rather than later.
