LOL - paracetamol here because it works. The only thing aspirin has ever done for me that I have noticed over the last at least 30 years - is cause raging and persistent heartburn to the degree that I did try it again after diagnosis with PAD and it was instant acid reflux along with the heartburn! I have few enough of my own teeth left already without destroying the enamel on the rest, thanks.
P was even enough when I 'did' my knee, too and after coming home I soon tried to keep off em again during the day, just living with the pain and only taking them an hour before bed to try and get off to sleep, as soon as I could. To begin with I had to take more during the early hours when I had to get up anyway for the loo but that didn't last long.
I dunno that being unable to fight e coli is that much to do with weight, Kathy - my granddaughter had to go on IV antibiotics in the finish whilst she was pregnant - not being to eat properly for months on end took so much out of her immune system she just couldn't get rid of it with anything her GP could prescribe and he sent her home to pack a bag and get her mum to drive her to A&E to be admitted for a few days, with a letter!
