When I saw the surgeon just before my trip, he told me to make sure I also took Pepto with me. So I did. I've taken it a few times, but.... I am not altogether clear on what it is supposed to do?
I do have a stash of Compazine and Zofran from when I was on chemo, but I had not really thought of taking them! lol However, with one Flagyl a day rather than two (and always taking it with a meal) I've had no queasiness issues this go-round.
In general, I am feeling great! Since late Fall we've hosted a few group suppers for friends and last night's was the first time I haven't had discomfort/need to run to the bathroom repeatedly, and I ate like I normally would have before all this happened! And I woke up with energy this morning! I really feel like I've turned a corner, if I can just figure out how to stay this way!
