No, don't ignore serious symptoms.

But you can avoid a lot of problems (and trips to the Doc or hospital) by a couple os simple easy steps.

1. Start early, like when your a child.
2. Eat a healthy diet.
3. Exercise regularly.
4. (Maybe the most important). Don't smoke.
5. Don't do drugs.
6 Drink in Moderation, (I've been living in Moderation for nearly 55 years now.)\

Those simple steps will keep you healthy right up until that bus (or truck) hits you.

Amd being healthy is how you (mostly) stay away from the medico's.

That's quite an accident-fantastic you don't stop, keep after life living doing your thing
and you have more screws in your shoulder than I do

Three weeks after my last trauma hawk ride, week after they screwed shoulder back together girl came up and we went at it for two days. 14 broke ribs punctured lung too

Thank god for percocet
Started riding my dyna putting around that week too. XL didn't survive the crash


FE has good advice, no smoke, I don't drink because I don't moderate and I train several times a week
Thanks sharing
You keep your tail over the dashboard, I'll be showing you as I fix this ironhead up
and you give great descriptions now I just got the parts manual

Damn, Dave! I read through all the crap you dealt with (between bad drs and stupid cagers). Not sure if there is any consolation in this but in my book you are one tough SOB. Keep after doing what you love.
