A long rollercoaster ride in August!

September 2, 2010

Greetings folks! It has been a little while since I posted. Sorry for the delay but we’ve had quite the August here in Ciproland. Joe has been investigating his newest symptoms — the blood in the urine — over the last few weeks.  We went to a recommended urologist who felt that there was a need to do a cystoscopy.  That was accomplished on — believe it or not — August 13 — Friday, August 13.  Now I am not one of those triskaidekaphobes nor is Joe.  We scheduled it for that day because we wanted info asap and this was asap.  All went well until they tried to wake Joe up from his anesthesia. He quit breathing.  They intubated him and he suddenly woke up freaked over the breathing tube and then went back to sleep — able to breathe on his own.  They kept him overnight in the hospital for observation — and all ended well — with a few med changes on his heart med-side.  There was nothing unusual about his urinary tract or bladder.  Last week Joe had a prostate biopsy and happily, he is clear and free of cancer.  Still no answers as to why there was blood in the urine, but at least there is no serious visible damage to his body parts.

As far as his other symptoms — neuropathies, shoulder pain, lack of flexibility, overall general body pain, malaise, brain fog and on and on… still there … no one wants to acknowledge that it was even remotely possible that the ciprofloaxin or levofloaxin had anything to do with the problems, but we know differently don’t we?

Here’s hoping that September is less physiologically — um — interesting — yeah that’s the word I was looking for.

    D-Mannose
    3/4 capsules 3/4 times a day. Helped me and helped my uncle.

    and of course lots of water!!

    Also, 2 Tablespoons of Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar, 2 Teaspoons Wild Honey, Mixed in a mug of warm water. Drink as much as makes you feel better.

    Try it and let us know.

    I wish I could give you more advice, but at least I have the bladder problems down. It helped me. No more blood. I also take 3/4 capsules of D-Mannose EVERYDAY.
