LOL I guess I can walk around with hot water bottles hanging off my chest! :) I do drink coffee but just a few cups in the morning. It helps keep the ole colon running smoothly in the mornings for me (I'm not flaring right now). But after the few cups, I switch to decaf or water thru out the day. My doc asked me that too. What I find amusing is that she was going thru a whole list of pain meds seeing what I could take and eventually we figured out that I should just stick to Tylonel or Darvocet!

LOL, Sherry, I just went through that with my dentists for antibiotics. They normally use amoxicillin or doxycycline, and of course I'm not going to take either of those. We finally settled on Erythromycin which is giving me nice pudding poop, but no pain or bleeding. If my infection is cleared up when I go back on Friday, I plan to ignore medical advice and stop the antibiotic.
