    Mine split open for months after you can feel it in there too. Mine was not in the groin though.

    I hate the media so damn much. Probably because they are all politically driven haha. I absolutely love these types of answers (love it from Republicans and democrats, because we all know it goes both ways).

    Duct tape and rub some dirt in it, though an option, not a good one.

    Ask the doc what options are available, trade offs (pros /cons). Asking them 'if you were having this done...' can be informative.

    @virginiashadow if surgery is the route you have to go, take the layoff and prescribed PT seriously. It sucks reducing activity so much but it is completely recoverable. I have a 60 year old female personal training client that had surgery for an abdominal hernia. She was on restricted physical activity for six weeks and then physical therapy for four weeks. But, on the 1 year anniversary of the surgery she hit a PB on the trap bar Deadlifts at 350lbs. The surgery was three years ago and she is healthier and stronger than she ever was before it.

    I plan on doing what I'm told. The way I feel right now is not good. I hope this doctor is good tomorrow. His bio seems pretty good. This pain and aching is really zapping my strength. I got down and did CPR on some lady last night and my groin felt like it was gonna pop. Ha. It hurt like hell.

    Not good man, got to take it easy. Hopefully they can fix it with minimal down time.

    Wife lost her sense of taste on Monday. Contacted her doctor to see if it was worth getting checked since it was a symptom of covid. I don't think they would have bothered but we have a 2 year old boy and 3 month old girl at home.

    Luckily her results came back negative yesterday. No other symptoms so not sure what's going on.

    I think my wife lost her sense of taste when she married me.

    Ha! You should see the arguments on archerytalk about this...
    My favorite:
    Try to stop a marble rolling down a hill after it first starts, at the halfway point, and right before the bottom.
    Now...do it with a Cadillac.

    The joys of being a human..... my experience tonight. Forgot to mention neither box was sealed with adhesive seals



    Life in the Covid era..... cracks me up.

    Ordered Papa Johns tonight, contactless delivery by default. So while waiting I read up on their policy.

    Your pizza is not touched from the time it leaves the oven until it reaches you. The box is sealed with an adhesive seal to show it has not been opened.

    Upon delivery the driver will leave the pizza at your door, knock/ring and back up 6 feet for you to get and acknowledge receiving your pizza.

    Now to reality.

    I give two shits about contactless delivery. The customer is never protected in the exchange, only the driver, from the customer aspect of it.

    Your pizza is never touched once placed into the oven. Yet the box, sauce cups, pizza peel and cutter are all potential cross contaniments.

    Now take that same box(es) and put them in a common pizza warming pack to keep them hot and deliver.

    Upon delivery the driver then reaches into the warmer pack and fetches your pizza box. Same hands that has been on his/her steering wheel, phone/gps, door handle, car keys, nose booger on the drive and what have you.

    You then have to take posession of the box(es), open and close them every time you want a new slice, open the sauce cups etc.

    Thank goodness that pizza was never touched after leaving the oven

    Only person protected in these instances is the delivery person. He makes no contact with anything new in his route. Paying cash or tip on delivery changes that, but the customer is by far the most at risk.

    Just cracks me up that the human mind can be led into and feel safe by some term as "contactless".

    Next up, "to help keep you safe we will no longer ask you to answer your phone, we'll leave a voice message in order to help stop the spread of the Covid-19 virus"

    Covid is the Democrats wet dream.

    Think about all the policy changes and who benefits most from them.

    $600 bonus for unemployment($15 an hour universal income)

    Criminals released onto the streets(criminal reform)

    Nearly every liberal elite story gone(Epstein, Clinton, Weinstein, Creepy Porn Lawyer......)

    Soon to be vote by mail

    Unemployment soars

    Economy tanks

    Government dependency at an all time high

    Democrat Governors doing everything they can to keep their states shut down while seeking higher power



    Anyone want to bet a thousand dollars that if Biden somehow wins in November, Covid-19 is a forgotten topic come March of 2021?
