Dec 4, 2018 · Trying to recover from a c.diff infection in Digestive Health

Your pencil thin bm remind me exactly what I have suffered though for the last 3+ years. I'd wake up in horrible pain and be in and out of the bathroom so often I was wishing I could die. I have been taking some otc, meds that have helped some. If I had eaten anything like pickles that would have torn my stomach up more. I haven't touched any more antibiotics in 3 years. A colonoscopy shouldn't cause you to lose your good bacteria. Only the use of antibiotics will do that. I have been though every horrible and nightmarish test they have and NOTHING showed up. Here is my theory, the over use of antibiotics has causes damage to my intestines and other parts internally. The pharmacy companies have never done any real testing on what happens when a person is subjected to over use of them. Therefore no one knows what happens as a result or knows what to look for on any test. if the pharmaceutical companies did any testing they would have the snot suit out of them. Therefore they will never do any research on people that have been overdosed and overprescribed antibiotics.

Oct 7, 2018 · Chronic bladder infection using a Gentamicin bladder wash in Kidney & Bladder

Thanks a million. I will read it. I just got done reading it. I must be very ignorant. I couldn't understand most of what I read. "Significant side effects of daily oral suppressive antibiotics can occur8 and along with changing the genitourinary flora,10 antibiotics can also affect the oral, pulmonary, skin, vaginal, and bowel commensals, and lead to increased findings of antibiotic-resistant organisms. That one sentence I would like to know what it means. Does it cause stomach/bowel problems using this gentamycin directly into the bladder?

Oct 7, 2018 · Chronic bladder infection using a Gentamicin bladder wash in Kidney & Bladder

I am getting the best medical care out there at Mayo. The medical care is so bad out here that Mayo is like a shining beacon. None of the Urologist at the VA Hospital or Urology Ass. in Tallahassee even know what a Gentamycin Bladder wash is. They are woefully ignorant. My case is very unusual because I can't take anymore oral or intravenous antibiotics. What a person "should" be able to get answers to and "should" be able to get good medical help is not reality. I have went way beyond "2nd opinions"….I am the best place available which is at Mayo. Trying to even find the bladder wash is not to impossible. It is a compounded medication and very hard to find and afford even with insurance. Without Mayo, right now I'd be dead.

I would like to learn more on this subject concerning adults, not children. I live 4 hours away from Mayo and on a fixed income. I can't just drive to Mayo for a class. Do you have other ways to watch this?

That is where I have been going. Going to other doctors has been like using Fred Flintstone. With me not being able to take antibiotics orally or intravenously for this chronice Bladdder infection complicates things.

No, thank God I don't. Between the chronic Bladder infection that I have. Which I have to use Gentamycin every day for by putting it directly into the bladder, with the worry of what is going to be used when this doesn't work anymore…..I don't think I could handle one more thing. If only the doctor would give me some answers instead of telling me, "We'll cross that bridge when we get to it" so I could at least have some peace of mind…I guess he doesn't know is all I can figure out. I wish he could understand the torment I live with every day not knowing what is going to happen when this infection becomes immune to this antibiotic. I take care of my 52 year old niece that has had a stroke. There is no one to care for her when I end up in the hospital urinating blood again.
