Surely I'm not the only woman here who crosses her legs when she sneezes or coughs...

Women in mine start at 40. LOL Maybe that is why I have gained all this weight, my bp is rediculous, today, my feet and up to my knees are so swollen, I have cankles and if you push, there will be an indention for about 2 minutes. I now stay gripey, dh calls it something else. LOL
And the sneezes REALLY get me sometimes!! What is up with THAT??

If you want, bt, you can start a thread about prostate issues as men age (and all the stuff that goes along with it) and we'll drop in and make "supportive" remarks!

what are cankles----I feel for you on everything else.......and yes, Vera Blue.....crossing your legs upon sneezing and coughing is a given...but I love the commercials that promise you worst side effects than you want to deal with........nope......don't think so........will deal with crossing my legs.....works just as well without giving me anal leakage.........etc.....

Expat, if you gotta ask what a cankle is, your problems ain't as bad as you thought!
JUST KIDDING!

I bet Buckytom could figure this one out, from his extensive research, not hands on, of course, but enough to at least lead us in the right direction.

What say you, buckytom?

of course i know what cankles are.

calves so thick they go straight down into your feet. the area of the lower calf is called a cankle.

if they are grabbed on occasion, men usually don't have anything bad to say about them.

(hey, yous guys were talking about peeing, so don't tell me i'm dragging the conversation down...)
