GI doctor visit today

Friday, April 19, 2013

I will be so happy to start treatment for the Helicobacter Pylori! I know it will make me feel sick to be on heavy antibiotics...they always do, but it will be worth to rid myself of these critters! I will just use lots of visualization to rid myself. I have done a lot of reading about this and funny thing....type A blood is more susceptible...yep I am type A. Also read that beer might help kill some of of it....really???? I might not have to give up my occasional beers? I will ask the doctor today. Of course will not have a beer while on the drugs. But if I have to have an occasional Negro Modelo....I could live with that! : )
I am still eating well and one would think I would put on weight..but I guess these buggers are hungry too and are doing something with the food I put in my system as I am only 105 again today. Still not under won't freak yet.
I do hope all of you have a great day.

    Feel like you are getting close to an answer. Yay! Then you will know what to do. If this isn't it -- well, one more thing to eliminate. Keep the faith!

    Visualization, an occasional beer, and being almost underweight -- sounds pretty good! Seriously, feel better. I'm sure this treatment isn't any fun, but we all are routing for you getting back to full force and feeling as fine as you look!!

    I'm glad you have a diagnosis... hope the antibiotics wipe out the bad things and allow the good ones to repopulate the appropriate places. May you be back to health and good feelings soon!

    My goodness, Sallie! Here's to feeling better - you'll have a heck of a cushion for celebration(s)! Well, the most important thing to ask the doctor is if it's okay to have beer or other alcohol with the antibiotic prescribed for the H. pylori infection. It's going to be wonderful to hear that you're feeling better. You've weathered this miserable thing so's to better days! emoticon - Susan
