Oct 4, 2018 · Diverticulosis in Digestive Health

I had diverticulitis for 3-4 years and took quite a few rounds of Cipro. My doctor retired and my new gastroenterologist felt it was imperative to have a sigmoidectomy. I had a kidney transplant 14 years prior to the diverticulitis. I had the sigmoidectomy with a laporoscope and had no problem and have had no problems since. Good luck!

That should have been Cipro. Sorry

Sep 17, 2018 · Diverticulosis in Digestive Health

I had diverticulitis for several years and took Capri. Diverticulitis is pockets in the colon where seeds, popcorn kernels, nuts, can get caught and infected. Diverticulosis means that instead of pockets, you have bulges. I eventually had a sigmoidectomy, laparoscopically. Which was no big deal. I have never had another problem and now eat popcorn daily, nuts, seeds and anything else I want. Totally worth it. No resulting problems.

Sep 14, 2018 · Anyone have tips on sun protection? in Transplants

I’ve tried writing this 3x. I purchased a BloqUV shirt for my Daughter (she was my Donor 20 years ago) from Amazon. There are other less expensive brands there, too. This one is SPF 50. I guess I should get one for myself!

I had my transplant 20 years ago at Emory and stayed 5 days. I’m sure it’s shorter now. Good luck!!

Aug 26, 2018 · timing immunosuppressants in Transplants

I live in Georgia-Home to the dogwoods. I’m 20 years post-transplant at Emory. I get labs every 6 months. I set my alarm for 9:00 am and 9:00 pm for meds. Sometimes with food, sometimes not. Doesn’t seem to make a difference. I’ve never had a problem.

Aug 24, 2018 · Hx FAP, resection at 10. December 2017 GERDS 24/7. Meds not helping. in Digestive Health

I had not heard of LINX. I had a fundoplication 9 years ago. I also have gastroparesis and esophagitis. I’m scheduled for a G-POEM procedure at Emory 9/27. I will look into LINX at Emory. Best of luck to you.

Aug 20, 2018 · Gastroparesis Diet Questions in Digestive Health

I’ve had gastroparesis for many years and vomit almost daily. Fat and red meat seem to make it worse. Small meals help. I’m having a new procedure next month-G-POEM. Google it. Not many hospitals are doing it yet. Best of luck!
