just wanted to give an update about that last post "NEW TREATMENT!" i wrote.. well it has been over a week since my 2nd round of antibiotics... and I AM ALL BETTER!!!
I have NO colitis symptoms at all. havent since last day of anti's at beginning of last week.
you really all should ask your doctors about this... the bacteria is called 'fusobacterium varium' and so far has been found in all tested UC sufferers.
the antibiotic combination therapy consisted of:
amoxicillin, tetracycline and metronidazole for 2 weeks
i am sooooooooooooooo excited.
to go out all day to the beach and not have to run to the toilet all day long.
i urge you all to try it. so far it has worked for all of my doctor's UC patients.
its worth a try. 2 weeks of antibiotics to be free of this pain and suffering.
i even has some wine and (a lot of) cocktails all weekend on a trip to the tropics. it was lovely!!!
and all the good food and alcohol all weekend didnt even trigger a single symptom. No diarrhea or blood or cramps at all!!!
good luck to all of you!
please try it!!
