Tufts University‘ does have a good reputation and is usually thought of as being credible.

This was also a relatively large study, i.e., 27,000 U.S. adults. So, I think you have to give it some credence.

Yes, yes, yes, you can always find studies that will say the opposite.

I will confess I have become more and more skeptical on the benefits of vitamins over the years. I smile when folks older than I wax lyrical about how Vitamin C helps ward off colds.

I learnt, just yesterday, to my cost, that Vitamin E oil does not do diddly to reduce scarring! I had been applying it on the scar I have from my knee surgery.

Now this. I do NOT take Vitamin D or Calcium on their own.

I do, because my doctor insists that I do, take a single multivitamin for old men each night.

I do, however, know folks who take Vitamin D and Calcium. I will have to tell them about this study.

I had my quadriceps tendon repair surgery,
at ‘
Frisbie Memorial Hospital‘ —
performed by Dr. Charles Blitzer
of ‘Seacoast Orthopedics
on Thursday, March 7, 2019.

It has now been just over a week since surgery.

Pain is still negligible!


On Tuesday, March 12, 2019, 5-days after surgery I had to see the surgeon.

My dressing was removed for the first time. That is what it looked like.

It looks bad but there really is no pain. I am in awe and awfully relieved. Hope it heals OK.

Staples will be removed on Friday, March 22, 2019. That will be interesting.
