Re: [MOL] From chris; ref: my Dad



Chris,
     Did you say your dad was still drinking some??? If so, with his
diabetes, he will experince ever more neurapathy, as well as the pain med.
Propoxy, will give some of the same side effects as he is having, numbness,
hands & feet, tingling, same places...He needs some other pain meds,
something without aspirin in it, maybe something like what I take!!...
Please ask his doctor for something without aspirin in it. Also tell him no
matter what to stop the drink, even wine, makes it worse!!!... xo Dean
