Thank you Steve, feeling a bit bitter just been so fricken tired! Called my nurse and she said its normal and to hack it out for the 3 more weeks which I have no doubts I can do I just get winded very easily now.
Another thing I just realized last night and as stupid as it sounds I have to admit if others have this problem
So for the last few months I have been feeling sick I have noticed many times I have really bad gas, nothing like I have ever had before and I thought what the hell is going on! Its gotta be the new meds!
Actually I thought the other night of what I have changed in my diet since all this begin and because many breakfasts I would always eat oatmeal instead I began supplementing "Fibre1" breakfast bars as they were easy to eat and helped me get calories and went down fast so I asked the wife to grab them from Costco in bulk.
Well last night when searching for the cause of my gas all the time I actually thought it could be honey, I started using pure honey from Kirkland(Costco) instead of artificial sweetners when all this happened and I suspected it could be the problem with the gas but honey actually does the opposite.
As luck would have it I came across some women discussing Kashi cereal giving them gas and then and then all of a sudden one of them mentions Fibre1 bars and then it was like they all did!
Apparently Fibre1 bars and Kashi Lean cereal contain "Chicory root" something I don't think I ever noticed on the packaging but regardless, apparently it can cause very bad flatulence in some people
I'm hoping I have found the source of my gas as funny as this story sounds, I'm sure my wife will be happier! I mean it was so bad it was like I was eating broccoli every day and at times it may have been causing some of my upset stomach and while the natural honey possibly may have helped that having a Fibre1 bar almost every single day and sometimes two bars a day was probably not helping so they are banned from my diet for now.
I thought I better mention this for people that worried why I was always sick, possibly the Fibre1 bars are part of the cause and the chicory root contained in them and also Kashi Lean or LT cereal may do the same and people bad gas and possible cramps and indigestion and if you already feel like crap from the medication this may seem like a side effect of the meds when it really isn't.
Perhaps this info will help someone else but I plan to stop eating them as of this morning and should know by the weekend if they are the source of the gas problems...I never mentioned the gas problem before because it was somewhat embarrassed and thought it was crazy nobody else mentioned this side effect but all along its probably been the Fibre1 bars.
Btw, I normal do not eat this crap this often and I started eating them out of convenience which was a bad idea and I typically eat oatmeal and brown sugar for breakfast and before all this I constantly ate oatmeal with a scoop of Costco chocolate protein with a half cup of milk mixed in and generally try to eat as healthy as I can.
I'm not perfect but do my best to eat healthily as possible and my wife always incorporates vegetables into every meal and I am usually always at my healthy weight I should be for my height and age and I should have never been eating this "instant food" in the first place...all these bars in my opinion are no different that junk food and even though they might say they are 120 calories if they have almost 30 grams of carbs thats essentially sugar and will convert to fat if my body doesn't burn it off and with less exercise that means I have gained about
6 pounds more than I should have
So the long and short of it, if your feeling like I was for parts of my treatment its possible it has something to do with what your eating and though I am eating healthy in all other aspects and consuming lots of water in this case I am sure the Fibre1 bars and the chicory root in it are causing me gas and possibly stomach problems.
I initially thought it could be the coffee I was drinking, but then again why didn't coffee do this before? so then I thought its got to be the medication or the honey I put in coffee as a sweetner and while reading about
honey I magically ran across the Fibre1 mention.
As I tell so many others "Google is your friend"....these days its amazing the info we can find instantly.
