It is Kirk Jensen, not Kurt.

I’m sorry you had to go through that kind of surgery twice!

All the noises went away! And now after surgery on my other shoulder, I have had very few noises… although the shoulder isn’t doing nearly as well as the first one….

I wish I could have been wandering around with you.

I was lucky to find a neighbor who is going to lend me her Breg, but I also contacted one of the distributors to see about renting the iceless unit… and making certain I can’t get it covered by my insurance. I’m surprised you said you used it “quite often” in the first couple of weeks, because I had mine on pretty much all the time, including all night, for weeks. It makes me wonder if it might not be as effective as what i used the first time… admittedly, we’re all different.

I actually didn’t use it for as long as I thought I would but for those first couple of weeks I used it quite often and was glad I had it. And other than the first few days of recovery when I needed help, after that I was able to fill it and hook it up on my own just needed help for about the first week getting the pad on my shoulder. I saw that people suggested using frozen water bottles (4 of them) plus water, rather than ice cubes& water, which makes it much easier than always making more ice cubes. I thought it worked well and was easy to use. Mine is in perfect brand new condition so I’m probably going to be trying to sell it on Amazon or Ebay. If you’re interested let me know. Since its brand new I’ll probably sell it for very close to what I paid but I’ll pay for the shipping. Good luck to you!

I can’t help–I had an iceless unit when I had surgery in 2013. Hopefully someone here can help.

I had rotator cuff & labrum surgery on my right in 2013 and am now doing it on my left shoulder… One thing that seems to have changed is the cold therapy units and I’m wondering what people’s experience is here. Last time, I had an iceless unit, that I rented, this time what we’re been offered is a small unit that needs ice periodically – and they aren’t covered by insurance and they aren’t rented. I’m looking at two I’m considering buying used. The Iceman by Donjon, or the Breg Polar Care Kodiac. I’m wondering if anyone loved or hated theirs. Thanks.

Comment on Exploring San Francisco’s Embarcadero with my iPhone 7 Plus  by Phil Williams http://sjl.us/main/2017/05/exploring-san-franciscos-embarcadero-with-my-iphone-7-plus%ef%bb%bf.html#comment-218700 Sat, 24 Jun 2017 03:48:26 +0000 http://sjl.us/?p=9859#comment-218700 Scott, an article in the June 21 WSJ about THE END OF CAR OWNERSHIP reminded me of what you said in Paris about the next big revolution if you will being that we will no longer own cars, just order one up when we need it and it will show up at our doorstep. The article or collection of articles speaks to how ride sharing and self-driving vehicles are ging to redefine our relationship with cars which is exactly what you were saying almost a year ago.
I hope you are doing well. I am retiring in 3 weeks and looking forward to that. Phil

Primary cameras these days are either the X100F or the XPro2 – or my iPhone 7 Plus!
