I have a very bad stomach bug, can this be caused by use propranolol, and is it safe and will the vancomycin work, while i am taken propranolol
- Can mrsa cause chronic intestinal pseudo obstruction?
I had a small bowel obstruction caused by adhesions from an appendectomy carried out 20yrs previously and had grumbling pain ever since but been labelled a malingerer by my family GP until one day at work when I started with terrible tummy ache and sickness like I'd never known, fetching up bile with force. I hated going to hospital after yrs of being called a moaner but after a day of rolling round in pain, temperature of 103 an dehydration, my Mammy insisted we go and I was seen straight away - to my shock I was in theatre within 3hrs with a serious obstruction.
I never really recovered... The obstruction returned after 2 days and a portion of necrotic bowel was removed, then further fever and cellulitis then MRSA and deaths door.... Isolation in high dependency (intensive care) wound break down, ventilated and all related issues that come with that - chest infection, pneumonia, bed sores. Total time in hospital 8 months. Negative pressure dressing on laparotomy wound, colostomy, picc, 4 rounds of vancomycin, minor flirt with heart failure (just water related) an eventually everything healed. Had a large incisional hernia to repair and some corrective work to the horrific scarring but then the neuropathy started plus problems eating, spewing up after any solid food, more than a few forks, diarrhoea and sickness or constipation nausea and pain driving me mad, tried all manner of drugs, nerve blocks, physio, floating tank, acupuncture, opiates, non opiates, spinal cord stimulation, an now a consultant just had a 'eureka' moment and said were you treated with vancomycin when you had MRSA? If so I'm pretty sure you have chronic intestinal pseudo obstruction and is 90% sure but wants to take a muscle biopsy to be certain. I've had so much surgery and bad news in the last 10yrs I'm terrified of germs, hospital acquired bugs and anaesthetics, is there any other way? Or can I have this test done awake - conscious sedation? I had it before during spinal cord surgery so I know what's involved and it's better than GA as I know what's going on, who is doing what to me etc...
Does anyone with a medical background know about this ailment/disease? Does it sound feasible that MRSA or it's treatment could have caused this? I was surgically debrided up to every other day when the vac pac/negative pressure machine and dressings were changed and the doctors told me I lost a great deal of tissue and had a lot of nerve damage due to the infection.
Any patient perspectives on this illness would also be very much valued in helping me make a decision, moving forward. If all this is going to accomplish is to attach a label to the pain but not actually change anything, after fighting it for 10yrs now, avoiding hospital as much as I can, I really can't see the point of exploratory surgerys and biopsys now when it is known that I have this propensity towards adhesions and a new wound means a potentially new adhesion growth site.
If it helps, the appendectomy happened when I was 10yrs old, the MRSA when I was 30 and I am now 40.

- Lymphadenopathy from milk of magnesia?
I was constipated for 10 days with no relief from prune juice or stool softeners. During this time an aching pain developed in my right hip and right lower back. I drank 3 tbs of Milk of Magnesia for two days and it alleviated my constipation. The hip and lower back pain started to go away too. Soon after taking Milk of Magnesia, a lymph node became swollen and very painful in my right arm pit.
- 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.

From this study (4 years ago):
Was misdiagnosed with lumbar osteomylitis,given PICC line home infusion 2g IV Vancomycin every 24hrs & 1g IV Ceftriaxone every 12 hrs for 3 days. On day 4 IV Vancomycin was doubled to 2g every 12 hrs.
By day 8 became nauseated, feverish, lethargic, could not stay awake during day, woke @11pm) burning mouth painful/difficult to eat, dry rashy patches on chest, below chin, jaw and around mouth, vaginal burning, swollen painful axillary and inguinal lymph nodes Right side only. Was hospitalized with "Vancomycin Toxicity" blood level of 61mg/ml.
I had clinical presentation of Drug Reaction Eosinophilia Systemic Syndrome-multi-organ failure, 6% eosinophils, full body erythametous rash,swelling, severe nausea,high fever, acute renal failure, oral/GI/vaginal mucosal burning, full body pain, aggitation, delerium, etc. toxic symptoms increased over the next two weeks, hearing loss,toxic hepetitis, vision "seeing everything yellow", subsegmental atelecatasis,plural effusion, acute pulmonary edema episode, possible anterior myocardial infarct.Day 22 discharged & my skin was peeling around my lips/mouth/chin/face then rapidly began sloughing off in wet great swaths from my head down-scalp, face, neck, chest,nipples, shoulders, arms, hands, fingers, palms, torso, back, buttocks, pubic, thighs, knees, calves, feet, heels, toes, soles of feet. The entire top layer of skin detached from the dermis leaving raw, red, chalky, dry dermis &virtually had no skin on 7 day post-hospital follow-up. The dermatologist wanted me to be re-admitted in a "Burn Unit" to manage thermal regulation, hydration and calorie support and oral steroids but the ID Dr insisted "topical only" steroids then was sent home. I lost 20+lbs rapidly while skin regrew & have since suffered daily fatigue 18+mos with post-digestive upper left quad stomach/duodeneum/pancreas abdominal pain, endoscopy tomorrow.
