BOB was put on FLOMAX twice daily since surgery.  Had been on one a day before surgery.  AS of yesterday 7/21/2007 find that FLOMAX is cause of his shaking GUTS and gittery feeling...he just cannot settle down, HOWEVER, googled it and find NOT TO TAKE ON EMPTY STOMACH....SO PRAYERFULLY things will change soon.  HE WAS TOLD TO TAKE ON EMPTY STOMACH.   His peeing has finally calmed down and able to go on his own so no more catheter nono which will make him so happy! tongue   and he did get SLEEP (MUCH NEEDED) last night.   IF there is a post here about this problem, I MISSED IT, but thought this might help someone else.  PRAYING YOU ALL HAVE A GOOD DAY TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
