  • Cdifficile treatment
    I had drug (cipro) induced cdifficile for three and a half years and was hospitalized 3 times and went through absolute hell until my Dr. finally agreed to do a fecal transplant. Even then the first transfer done via a lower bowel infusion didnt work. Two weeks after the first one he did a full colonoscopy transfer going up as high as my appendix and that one worked immediatly and I have had no furthur bowel problems, no diarrea at all and its' now been well over a year. I took every type of cdiff drug imaginable prior to that. I had to stay on Vancomyicin all the time or I would be spending all my time going back and forth to the john 20 or 30 times a day. I was so ill that I could bearly keep my head up. I couldnt eat without an urgent bathroom trip. I had to wear Depends all the time, my skin was raw and sore from constant wiping. I was given Tinture of Morphine to slow me down. That helped some. My veins collapsed from all the test shots and from the many pints of saline to keep me hydrated. My heart stopped from a lowering of my potassium level and I had to get a pacemaker to control my heart rate. I spent a fortune on the drugs,some costing as much as $1200.00 a month, more than I make working and working was rough. I would have to go to the restroom so often and I work outside where there were frequently no facilities. I would have to bring a complete change of clothes and a disinfecting kit with me to cleanup the restroom. I washed my hands raw. You cant leave that for someone else or they might get sick too as it is highly infectious. Hospitals are not that meticulous either. I once had to go to a Long Island Hospital that failed the precautions test miserably. They assigned me to a room with another patient whose family wanted to eat their meals in our shared room and then use the bathroom. I pitched a fit on them and told them no way were they going to eat in that room or use the bathroom. I can't imagine what that hospital was thinking. Anyway you get the idea....3 years of expensive treatment and all I needed was some healthy donor poop and someone willing to mix it up in a blender and put it in syringe and put it up the wassoo and I was done. Dont let them give you all the expensive treatment if you have a resistant case of cdiff, insist on the fecal transplant right off, you will be very glad you did. The donor should be someone in your family, preferably someone young with lots of good flora for digestion. Someone without other gut problems...they need to test them too. Bring it in the afternoon before and Bingo,you will be back on track the next day. I am open to answer questions or be tested orhelp with anything else you might want to know, just ask me.
  • Irregular heatbeat and prilosec
    I am 65 M and a long history of Moderate hypertension. I am overweight, out of shape. 15-20 years ago when I didn't take BP medicine I had occasional PVCs, heart skips a beat.

    Since I have been on Metoprolol (beta blocker) and Cozaar my BP is normal and heartbeat normal.
    I have been on that regimen 15-20 years.

    Now or in the last weeks or 2 I notice skipped beats and irregular, fast to slow and back on occasion

    Recently It was suggested I may have sleep apnea and was definitely diagnosed with bad acid reflux by an Ear nose and throat specialist.

    I was told to go on 2 OTC Prevacid/day for 3 months. I instead, since I had them, went on Prilosec-- slightly different.

    I have been on Prilosec 2 or so weeks maybe 3.
    It clicked in my mind today that maybe there is a connection.

    I have a pretty expensive pulse oximeter (electronic finger thingy) and I can actually see flat lines and skipped beats and strength of pulse. Oxygen is 90 to 94. Also I started taking aspirin out of fear

    Anyone else?
  • Tingling feet and hands
    I have used flagyl 3 times and after stopping the use of this medication my feet and hands have became so tingly and itchy That its becoming unbearable.
  • Prednisone mixed results-it lets me breath (1 response)
    have been on prednisone now for 3 years straight. Am taking 30mg a day just to breath. every time i have tried to taper off i have ended up in the emergency room unable to breath. That has been 7 times in the last year. I am 49 years old and was in good health 3-4 years ago. got a cough and it has been down hill.Prednisone worked great at first but then it starts to destroy the body.Had nasal passage surgery(waste of time)have broken many ribs from coughing.painful.when you are on prednisone your body takes 3-5 times longer to heal.craked tailbone from a slip. have seen over 12 doctors.reasonable gueswork. My best doc which is mine says do you want to suffocate to death or let your body try and fix itself if it can. im not for suffocation at all. Just a good medicine to counter the angriness of the steroid. Any ideas i am all ears. oh ya my eyes are starting to go and my joints as well
  • Androgel for secondary hypogonadism
    Severe swelling in legs, ankles and feet after being on my feet for more than one hour. Pain in calves and ankles. Feels like they're being squeezed or compressed. Pain dissipates after laying down for a few hours. Swelling never completely dissipates. Always some swelling in ankles.

    I am a 30 yr old woman, Homozygous A1298C for MTHFR, taking 1 mg Paxil, put on l-methylfolate by my doctor. It cause extreme acne, muscle twitching, severe mood swings, brain fog, etc. I had beautiful skin before, but after the methylfolate acne it is severely and deeply scarred and will never be the same again. We tried adding hydroxocobalamin and niacin to balance the methylfolate but it didnt work. It took two months for the severe breakouts to slow and even still I have deep breakouts, just not at the same extreme rate. Be cautious with B vitamins!
