Well, the ol' guy isn't entirely gone. He still graces me with his presence several times a day. But nothing like what I was before starting this new miracle elixir cure-all tablet. Just kidding. It's called VSL#3 and I swear upon swear that this is the only thing that has given me some semblance of relief lately. It's been almost a month since I've been on it. Today I had a miraculous 4 bathroom trips. That was UNHEARD of in my former life. I want to scream to the world - today, my butt is not in pain!!!
Granted, I am also spilling protein in my urine, which could indicate renal insufficiency, for which I will jollily hop over to my new nephrologist and probably end up getting a kidney biopsy on the same day as my physiology exam. Hmm...maybe I could do the exam DURING the biopsy! "Give me some more of those things...whatever they are, the Versed works okay as well...yeah, bring 'em on. But first let me interpret this EKG." HA.
Just wanted to touch base with the good news. Seems I've been so dreary-smeary lately. I've missed you guys and will try to be on to answer questions as best I can :)
