Well, I am starting the antibiotics, the HPAC has 7 blisters (7 days) of 8 pills. One side of 4 pills (morning) has Prevacid 30mg lansoprazole delayed release capsules (1/2 pink 1/2 black colours), second pill is Biaxin BID (clarithromycin) 500mg (light yellow colour) third and fourth pills are Amoxicillin Trihydrate 500 mg each (scarlet and yellow colour) and then the same pills for the night to be taken 12 hours apart for 7 days.
I felt good about
2 to 3 hours this afternoon after taking it this morning about
10:30 a.m., almost felt normal for the afternoon! But now, I can feel a bit of pain right in the middle of my tummy area, about
two-three inches below my ribs. So not sure if I'm just tired and holding in my stress in the middle of my tummy.
The indigestion, heartburn, burping was starting up last night, slept OK during the night and not bad this morning also. But I can tell from the burning feeling between my back shoulders and needing to slouch down to feel better was not going to do me any good, and that's why I decided to just go ahead and take the darn things, to get this part over with. I heard about
another person in the hospital with bleeding ulcers, the person got to the point where they were throwing up blood and thought I'd better get this under control now while I'm "fairly" feeling well. (Starting to flare also, if this is cause or just the "usual UC")
So here I am, hoping for the best and going to take one minute at a time and wish it goes by fast within 7 days. I am starting to feel the urgency to go to the bathroom though, (pills probably kicking in as the pharmacist said it would do for the next two days for sure). Crossing my fingers to not be the dreaded c-diff any time soon. I do see my doctor on Monday and will see how things go until then.
I couldn't find the s. boullardi (florastor) so I had to take the Bio-K 1/2 97g bottle this morning for starters and then the other half I'll take this evening with the night pills. I'll have to order online.
So that's about
it for now, gotta go washroom again then I'm going to rest a while. Some maroon coloured blood on its own about
every 3 bm about
2 tablespoons, then some soft formed dark beigy colour with blood mixed in of course.
