  • High Blood Pressure - The Cure

    Apparently a simple operation will now cure hypertension for thousands who can't reduce it via lifestyle changes or drugs.

    Why do I think invasive surgery cutting the nerves from the brain to the kidney is not a good idea?

    I can't imagine.

    The instinct for 'heroic medicine' is alive and well, isn't it? Look, none of the drugs work, quick, pass the scalpel.

    First time I met my doctor as a student, I mentioned that I got cold feet and chilblains. At once, he started talking excitedly about surgery for Raynaud's that involves severing nerves. Time to smile calmly and back out of the room...

      I read the thread title and thought "I've got every album The Cure has released to date, but I don't recall that track..."

      I'll go back to sleep...
      La tristesse durera toujours...

        Probably fine, but stenting of the renal artery is probably indicated.

          But really, thank goodness for that. Seriously.
