Hi everyone, here is a little breakdown of what is going on with me.
I have never suffered from IBS ever. I take Endep (Elavil for interstitial cystitis ( bladder condition, had it for 10 years.)
Blood tests were negative for cealiac and chrons. Nothing else showed up.
Stool sample was negative for Giardia and any bugs. The script
for Fasigyn was given to me as a "trial". I have had that medication once before and I was vomitting, diarrhea and headaches. It did t agree with me at all.
I'm back from the doctors as I had to pick up the script
. I had typed everything down from when my upset tummy started including everything I had eaten and drank. She looked at it and said that I was clearly anxious. From reading the page she said it didn't look too bad and the fact that I had 3 normal poos (solids) wasn't that bad. The last 3 days my poos have been on the soft side (consistency like weetbix cereal). She wasn't too concerned. She said that I hadn't eaten much and was drinking fluids and therefore my poos wuld be much softer as there wasn't much thereunto bulk it up. As for the giarida she didn't think I had it (this doctor isn't my usual one)), but she's part of the practise. As I didn't have lots of diarrhea.
Man this has left more confused than ever. I have started eating normally again and my bottom is sore, probably due to the fissure I have.
Wed 11 Jan: 2 hours in loo, very very soft poo, urgency. Took 2 immodium. Didn't eat much. Crackers, toast and chicken noodle soup.
Thur 12 Jan: no poo. Bland food, crackers, toast, black tea. Steamed potatoes and rice, water.
Fri 13 Jan: no poo. Bland food until dinner (wedding anniversary). Normal dinner - chicken schnitzel, salad and potatoes, water.
Sat 14 Jan: No poo. Fairly normal diet. Toast and black tea. Lunch shaved chicken sandwich. Dinner can't remember lol
Sun 15 Jan: No poo. Breakfast toast and black tea. Lunch sandwich with banana. Dinner steak, salad and a few chips.
Mon 16 Jan:Poo : very hard and shaped with some mucus like jelly poo.. Breakfast toast, banana and black tea. Lunch, sandwich (can't remember what was on it) Dinner potatoes and rice.
Tues 17 Jan: Poo. Firm log shaped and some yellowish mucus liquid. No breakfast, lunch a banana. Dinner potatoes and rice.
Wed 18 Jan: Poo, firm log shaped and some yellowish mucus. Stool sample to doctors. Breakfast nothing. Lunch banana. Dinner spaghetti bolognaise & 2 dinner rolls.
Thur 19 Jan: super soft poo (like soggy weetbix) and some yellowish mucus poo like stuff. Breakfast nothing. Lunch toast and vegemite. Dinner steak and boiled potatoes and some lettuce. Drank a fair bit of water to drink.
Fri 20 Jan: periods started. Poo very soft and some urgency, some liquid. Spent 3 hours in the bathroom, just incase there was more. Breakfast nothin. Lunch banana on toast black tea. Dinner. Steamed chicken and rice. Quite a bit of water.K
Sat 21 Jan. Poo somewhat soft and some small formed skinny poo pieces. Breakfast toast with banana and one with vegemite, black tea. Lunch chicken sandwich and some water. Dinner: steak, salad and 1/2 cob corn.
After dinner I had an upper tummy ache and now lots of lower rumbling. I feel like I need to poo, but only a little wind came out.
Dr gave me a script
for Giardia in case, but stool sample was negative. Does this sound like I have Giardia . I am only
opening my bowels in the morning and only in the morning. I do have a fissure and that hurts at the moment and i feel like I might need to
open my bowels, but I'm scared to spend more hours in the bathroom. I do suffer from anxiety and slight depression.
What does my food, poo diary sound like to you ? Infection, Giardia, or not eating enough fibre bulking foods and drinking too much liquid that it's making my poos soft.
What can I eat to bulk up my poos?
The antibiotic she gave me was Fasigyn. I have taken this many years ago and it didn't agree with me at all. The metal taste still haunts me. Lol
Thanks for reading.
