Hi, all. Thanks for your support.
So far, I'm hanging in there. My stools last night (3 - 1 or 2 more than normal) were a pretty "fluffy" but not liquid. It started within 3 hours of my first Keflex dose. I started taking an Imodium with each Keflex, and today my belly feels like there might be quarreling puppies in it, but no D.
The good news is that the swelling has gone down a bit when I would have expected my eye to be swollen shut this morning without the antibiotics. I'm going to really try to stick it out because I know other abx would be less effective.
I think it's a tear duct blockage that's now infected based on the symptoms. I already had my periodic eye doctor appointment scheduled for later this month, so hopefully I can get some answers there.
