Hello everyone, glad to find this group. I am 55 years old and had a heart attack, 100% blockage in one artery and a stent put in on June 15 2015 a little over 1 year ago. 2 months later had a kidney stone attack, CT scan, and a aortic aneurysm was found. Passed that one and had another kidney stone a month later where I was put in the hospital where my bladder was flushed by means of a Foley catheter, thought I was going to have another heart attack putting that thing in. Once out of the hospital I haven't been back to a urologist yet although I have had more kidney stones since but made it through them so far. Just went for my 1 year ultrasound and my aneurysm is about 4.5 centimeters. The reason I joined the group is i took a zpack a couple of months before all this started. My sister was in the hospital for Pneumonia or whooping cough. I had visited her while she was in the hospital. After she was released I got a call from the county health nurse saying she was sending me a prescription for the zpack as a precaution since I had been exposed to my sister at the hospital. She said it was up to me whether I took it or not. She said I could go ahead and take it, wait and see if I had any symptoms and then take it, or not take it at all. I took it about a month later cause I had a cough and sore throat. Got better I thought but within a couple of months had the blockage in the one artery and the aneurysm found 2 months after that. I would like to know if the zpack caused it all? 2Any input or support would be greatly appreciated. Thanks sincerely
Have C. Diff, a recent CT scan shows I have kidney stones. Exactly one month prior I had a CT scan as well, no stones. Are these related? Dr says the kidney stones are of no importance. I have been dealing with this for a year now, it is always a violent episode with diarrhea and/or vomiting, significant weight loss, excruciating abdominal and rectal cramping. In two of the incidents i had bloody liquid diarrhea. In all incidents I had diarrhea too many times to count. In the past year I have been prescribed 8 antibiotics some being two at a time. I am now on pain meds and nausea meds from this episode 4 days ago. Went to my dr this morning, he refused to refer me to a GI doctor because it would make him look like an idiot and that he can take care of the c diff. Now, i havent had a bowel movement for 3 weeks, after being diagnosed. Doctor only ordered another fecal, i reminded him i havent gone since the last test. He said when i do finally have a bowel movement to just bring it back then. I so badly need help! ERs say see your primary care, primary care does nothing. I am suffering so badly, i do not know where to turn. Sorry for the book ive written, just scared. Oh, and did i mention my doctors nurse is C Diff positive as well, before me of course. Thank you so ever much!
I was just wondering if it is normal that I am spotting on the first dose of Azithromycin. I just got over my period a week ago and now I'm spotting.. Just really nervous it can be something more serious.
I went to hosp in severe pain around my front rib to back...like a band. The pain would come so sharply then fade. Previously I experienced tingling and numbness in that area. They sent me home with zithromax. Now I rash. Am pretty sure I have shingles. Is zithromax dangerous with shingles
Was on metronidazole for c diff which didn't work to get rid of it. Wondering now if this oral vancomycin medication will do the job that the other couldn't do. So far this new medication has given me a very bad stiff neck. Has anyone taken this and it cured your c diff.
