My poor girlfriend. She falls and breaks her hip in the middle of the night. Then has to have two surgeries to fix her hip. Has been confined to her bed and now has developed IBS because of all the anti-biodics she's had to take.
She was very proactive and got on a probiodic to help regain the good bacteria in the bowel. Which is something I learned a long time ago, when my husband got a staph infection in his spine and was on heavy doses of a very strong antibiodic.
Even though she was being proactive. Her bowel has not been the same since she's been home. When describing her symptoms to me. It was as if she was describing me, when I had IBS.
We talked about all the different things that she can do to help herself. Diet, stress, getting the bowel to calm down and to try to stop the cramping early enough. Before it triggers the whole intestinal tract to start cramping. Once it starts it so hard to stop.
I explained to her the diet I went on that really helped me and a drug that I took subligually that worked to stop the cramping.
I'll explain more of this in my next post.
The real issue is that no one was taking her seriously. She was told that it would go away. She kept telling me how debilitating it was and she now understood what I went through, when I had it. There were some days that I just couldn't leave the house. I was afraid. I never knew when I was going to have an attack. Sometimes it comes on so fast and furiously that you don't know what hit you.
It also depletes your body of all the electrolytes and you get chilled and are quivering during and after an attack. I would be so cold because I'd break out into a cold sweat when I was having an attack. The same thing was happening with my girlfriend. It's a serious problem for a lot of reasons.
More to come.........What I did to get better.
