I started taking Prilosec once a day in the early 90s and continue to do so for stomach ulcers and severed reflux. In April of this year I was diagnosed with cancer of the right kidney. On May 27th. I had the kidney and lymph nodes removed. I have not been advised by my various doctors to stop taking the stuff. What do you know
Prescribed flagyl after surgery, 10days, twice a day, 500mg. First few days I had metallic taste in my mouth and abdominal cramping. By the 5th day I had mucus stool, straight mucus. And the 6th day woke up to have white patches on throat. I was also very emotional during this medicine, unknown if related. I stopped taking it on the 6th day. Surgery was for cyst removal and neither gi or throat related conditions.
