Sat, May 16 10:11pm · Banding Esophageal Varices in Transplants

@michaelswaim My GI doc would never do 9 bands at one time. The most i had at a time was 4, and only becsuse the 4th was away from the others. Some of my banding recoveries hurt more than others, not dependent on number done. I am now 18 months post transplant. How is your current health?

It has an optical power of 30mw – not sure how that calculates re distance. I'm good with this as nothing is perfect, germs are everywhere. And I'm with you that I hate the idea of more chemicals and trash going into our world.

I bought mine through Amazon, selected model really based on delivery time (some were anticipatinga June delivery)! I also have a cell phone UV sanitizer case made by Homedics that just barely holds my Note 9 phone. I also use it for my eyeglasses and any other small objects.

I had previously looked into UV light because of its use in curing gel nail polish plus I have a friend (a bit of a germaphobe) that used one in all hotel rooms. Knowing it had disinfecting properties I didn't do extra research but bought a wand that has a wavelength of 260-285nm and disinfection time of 10 seconds. I'm cautious, as we all are, but there is a balance in everything so I just bought one. Hope this helps everyone.

Stay safe.

I had labs drawn on Thursday and while the staff wore masks, unfortunately not all the patients did. Lucky it is a large lobby so I was able to stay away and they took me back quickly. Having an appointment helps plus they know my situation.

My hubby is doing all the shopping. He has a station set up in our laundry room, right off our garage, where he wipes stuff down (take out food as well). We just got a UV sanitizing wand this week so he has started using that.

6 months is normal waiting period from start of disability (not application date). I think it might be based on most states having 6 months short term state disability.

Thinking the same re paying. She won't want us to do "pay her" so perhaps we'll phrase it as a gift.

I have a regular home cleaning set for next week and am dithering. She is a small business owner and has always been diligent both before and after my transplant. I'm holding off on decisions until Friday to see what has developed in my county.
