I gad half a water melon just now, good stuff. I'll have another half tomorrow.

I'm also going easy on the carbs, sweets and crisps. (as best as I can at least.


I remember reading that the water Melon pips were also  good for you. I'll have to check that but for now i'm not eating them.

Having a fish salad today, off the boat this morning, farm free!

forgot to mention i had a few more tiny bits and pieces this morning. and am able to be in and out in 10 mins without any pain at all. i think now that i know it's not really going to hurt, i'm not as tense and it all goes rather smoothly, more touching wood

You think you are unfortunate , then you find out an acquaintance has a lung tumour at age 45. kinda makes you man up a bit .

wow the water melon worked a treat .9 of a litre came out. so will have to catheter a bit earlier tomorrow to take that into account.

although it's not a race I am getting quite quick. so should be able to do the required 4 catheter today and continue with that from now on.

I love the benefits of watermelon. I would eat it every single day of the year if I could.
And for men:
Watermelon is an excellent source of potassium, vitamins C and A, and contains a high concentration of beta-carotene. Red watermelon rind also contains the phyto-nutrient citrulline, which has health benefits such as increased blood flow throughout the body. The inside of a watermelon is about 92 percent water. The remaining 8 percent has the highest concentration of lycopene found in any fresh fruit or vegetable. The health benefits of watermelon are abundant, especially for men.

900 ml this morning which is a lot more than normal, however I have been drinking more.

water and lemon first thing, with saw palmetto, followed by grapefruit juice with urva ursi, followed by glass of water with live cell and polyflora.

then watermelon (going to try just a quarter today. perhaps i should weigh that or measure it in cups? and log as input.

the joys of spring

Any thoughts from anyone regarding eating the watermelon pips?

I read somewhere that the fruit is good, the plant id better and the root is best. but no mention of the seeds, should be okay though.

http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/nut-and-seed-products/3147/2

This food is very low in Cholesterol and Sodium. It is also a good source of Phosphorus, Zinc and Manganese, and a very good source of Magnesium.

In the summer, I eat 'em like they're going out of style.  But, I also eat lots of red grapefruit and red onion, so I know I'm getting plenty of lycopene year round.  Used to eat tons of tomatoes pre-BTD, but those are avoids for me.

have a bit of pain this afternoon. a sort of numb pain. and the very slight pain in the mod of my back is there most of the time and gets worse in the evening.

perhaps due to the urva ursi?

This may just be "sludge" from the clean-out process...  I know when I was cleaning out the bladder, I had some really dark matter several times - usually with some pain, but it cleared up rather quickly.  Of course, your situation is more intense than mine was, so you may have more "interesting" results...  When sludge settles in parts of the bladder, it can take time to loosen and be removed.  The junk can be almost any color due to age and be rather thick as it is newly reconstituted...

didn't know that Joe Thanks knowledge is power and all .

I read this today too, people on here had mentioned about vit and I was moaning that Dr D didn't make one

i am beinging to understand what they meant now -

Doing the rounds today is a piece on "vitamin c" causing kidney stones.  Now, studies of this kind often set out to discredit supplements, and often show bias so we always take them with a pinch of salt (real Celtic Salt of course not toxic table salt!). BUT the study looks reasonably credible, and shows a higher incidence of kidney stones in men taking vitamin C regularly.

The study is in fact talking about Ascorbic Acid - synthetic vitamin C, well it's not really even vitamin C, it's just a man made copy. Laboratories can't actually make vitamins, they've never been able to, never will. What they do is create chemical fractions and copies of nature.

In nature, vitamin c is in a complex food state form, nutrients include bioflavonoids, rutin, and a tiny bit of ascorbic acid.  This is the complete and natural vitamin C, it's gentle yet effective, and very easy to absorb.

In contrast, when you take ascorbic acid, the body seeks the markers that should be there and can't find them causing imbalance.  And that's why large doses can cause bloating and diarrhoea.   Much is simply excreted, and in fact, this process which causes too much oxalate in urine may in fact be responsible for the higher number of kidney stones.

Your kidneys are just starting to work again too. They had to of been upset prior. That back pressure on them wasn't a nice thing.

Again try some cranberry as regular food, juice, whatever. It slickens up the bladder so bacteria and stuff won't adhere to it. As opposed to over-indulging in chocolate (just have some).

I can't get hold of cranberries or a decent juice so I just ordered 2 kg of cranberry powder. I'l capsulate that and take them. should have that in the next seven days.

I am taking bilberry caps now two a day roughly 320 mg each. that should tied me over until I get the cranberry.

I wonder how much I should take and how often. being as I'm taking urva suri et al too.

I'm working on the chocolate DOS. lol not very successfully but working on it none the less.

D-Mannose works for some people too. I had this problem every few months when I was younger. Taking cranberry caps every day stopped all that, though. Now, I simply keep them on hand - just in case. For me and all the people I've recommended them to over the years, they have worked MUCH better than the juice.

Busy morning and late catheter 1.1 litres better not do that again. live and learn.

weird thing is that the liquid starts off fairly clear and then get darker and cloudier. you would think it would be the opposite.

better though slightly.

I suspect my new routine will start to pay off soon.

still unable to go without catheter though which I didn't expect.

definately getting harder to get that last few inches, almost impossible taking 20 minutes now.

coughing not helping, so going to look for other advise to ease the process.

nothing in the instruction booklet.

The current catheters cost about £5 each that's about £20-30 per day or up to £210 per week. plus they deliver it. god knows what it cost the country

Probably the same reason a lot of things are not for sale here. And it isn't necessarily for the benefit of the consumers!
