    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Being a nurse in the ER most of my 25 years is due to the stress and strain of lifting and pulling patients a large number are obese, I ruptured 4 discs in my neck rupture and have a titanium rod supporting my neck. I started having lower back intensify an have 4 bulging discs with one of them laying on a nerve causing severe pain at times. I MISS NURSING SO MUCH.

    Yo Fenton,

    Seems like like we lab lizzards choose threatening avitars for this board. I remember the weird pathologist that had the telephone system for the entire lab replaced so that he could sit in his office and eavesdrop on all the departments. What a noid! (We reconnected it to make it into an interdepartmental intercom! Hee hee. (He never caught on)

    When I first started so many years ago. A amylase test was a hand method and took 8 hrs to run. Today got a result in 20 minutes. I used to be on my feet all day and running wet chemistries by hand. Now I load up the instrument and and sit in front of a computer. Wow who would have thought.

    I do wet chemistry in an environmental lab and most of the tests we do are done by hand. as a matter of fact i have to run a bunch of titrations by hand today. we have an autotitrator for alks, but not for acidities.
