I caught it, pretty badly. Threw-up 5 times and had D 12 times in 7 hours. (I hardly EVER puke!) I was down to bile, literally. Finally, just as I was going to pack up and head to the ER for fluids, I was able to keep the phenergan down and some water and sprite. I got some rest and kept fluids and soft foods for the rest of the weekend. I'm also taking Levsin (anti-spasmatic) that is helping out with the narcotic combination. My doc is getting more phenergan this morning as I went through several since I was able to keep it down. I'm still nauseated and have lost most of my appetite. I switched to high-protein boost and can stomach potatoes and cheese and crackers, but still having lots of gut pain since this bug.
Anyone have it and can tell me how long before they sort of went back to normal? It doesn't help that this hit JUST as I went off steroids, so it's hard to tell what is Crohn's and what is this bug. The nausea is overwhelming though... I'm taking 1/2 a phenergan every 4-6 hours, so 12.5mg. THat keeps it at bay and the Levsin and Norco help the gut to stay calm.
Just looking for a light at the end of this tunnel.
